Don’t Simply Assume You’re Healthy, Says Newport Beach Chiropractor
The United States is No. 1 in crisis health care, according to the World Health Organization. It’s also No. 1 in health care costs – but it ranks 77 out of 190 countries when it comes to overall health.
“We need to shift the way we approach health,” says Dr. Jane Macris, a chiropractor at Wellness Choice Center in Newport Beach. Rather than wait until we’re ill and treat the symptoms, she says, we should opt for preventive medicine. We should consider “health” as 100 percent of our organs functioning at 100 percent – 100 percent of the time.
Our brain sends messages down the spinal cord to all the organs, limbs and muscles in our body. If a bone in the spinal cord is misaligned, it puts pressure on the delicate nerves within the spinal cord, interfering with and blocking those messages. That blockage can affect various parts of the body below that misalignment.
What causes misalignments? It can start at birth, with all the twisting and pulling a child goes through during the birthing process. Then there are falls, accidents and sports injuries. That’s physical stress – but it’s only part of the equation. Emotional stress can cause illness, too. And then there’s chemical stress from the food we eat and the air we breathe.
Most of us get our teeth checked every six months or so. Why not check your spine, which houses and protects the body’s nervous system, which controls every aspect of your body – and your health. Sure, you might look good and feel good – but you might not be healthy.
That’s where Chiropractic BioPhysics can help. It takes chiropractic a step beyond pain relief. The technique improves or even restores normal spinal structure, through adjustment, exercise and “spinal remodeling.” Chiropractic BioPhysics is the most researched, scientific and results-oriented corrective chiropractic technique.
