The Benefits of Chiropractic Care
The benefits of chiropractic care are extensive to say the least. If you enter our office looking to stand up straight for the first time in days, or whether you’re just looking to improve your overall well being, chiropractic is the solution. The nervous system controls everything that happens within your body, and chiropractic helps to restore and maintain the optimal function of your nervous system.
Chiropractic is based on the premise that your body has its own ability to fix what is wrong with it, provided that your nervous system is functioning properly and free of any interference. Your nervous system is responsible for controlling everything that goes on inside of your body, such as your heartbeat, food digestion, the movements of all your muscles, and the healing of both internal and external imperfections. The nerves in your body (which branch out from your brain & spinal cord to each and every tissue) carry all of the messages that your brain sends, just like telephone lines carry a phone signal.
A variety of situations can effect this (nerve) signal and will result in the overall condition of your health at the time; including major accidents, strains and sprains from sports or work, or even the stresses of everyday activities. As a result, there may be irritation of your nerves, which causes the messages from your brain to your tissues to have “static.” If this is the case, info rmation impulses will not flow freely (or clearly) throughout our bodies, and our optimum health and wellness will not be attainable. Consequently, all of the aches and pains, (as severe or minimal as they may be), will not be able to heal, quickly or correctly. But not to worry, that’s where Dr. Michael C. Zimmer and Dr. Amy M. Bartels can help.
Your nerves (or internal telephone lines) can become irritated or compromised for a number of reasons, but most often, joint dysfunction and muscle tension are the major culprits. Luckily, loss of joint motion and increased muscle tension are also two big things that chiropractors are trained to help with. With our adjustments of your joints (usually your spine), deep muscle work and various therapies, we correct the imbalances in your body that are irritating your nerves and effecting your well-being. In turn, the healing power and information from your brain may, once again, flow static-free to every inch of your body. Removing interference and irritation from your nervous system is what allows your body to heal itself, and that’s precisely what we do. This helps you to achieve the healthy lifestyle that you desire, and defines why chiropractic care is so beneficial to us all.
Dr. Michael C. Zimmer and Dr. Amy M. Bartels, your good health is our business.
