San Diego Chiropractor – What Do Chiropractors Really Do?

The other day while at a friends get together someone asked me why I chose to become a Chiropractor.  We got into a long conversation on what it means to me to be a San Diego Chiropractor.  Being a San Diego Chiropractor has been the best decision I have ever made other than getting married to my wonderful wife.  What I have found is that most people have no idea what I do as a San Diego Chiropractor, so I thought I would take some time and tell you a little about what I do.

As a San Diego Chiropractor my main purpose is to enhance the lives of all my practice members with Chiropractic care.  You see San Diego Chiropractors work with the function of the nervous system.  The nervous system controls every aspect of your body including muscles, organs, tissues, and all systems of the body.  The nervous system is surrounded and protected by bone, specifically your spinal column.  The spine has the ability to move which means that one or more of the bones can move out of alignment.  The misalignment puts undue stress or tension to the delicate nerves exiting the spine; San Diego Chiropractors refer to this phenomenon as “Subluxation.”  These nerves are the extension of the spinal cord and send messages out to the different areas of the body.  Stress or tension to the nerve will eventually lead to symptoms.  These symptoms include back pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, headaches, stomach issues, digestive problems, increased blood pressure, allergies, asthma, reduced immune system function, and much more.

Chiropractors are the only professionals specifically trained to detect “Subluxations.”  Once detected San Diego Chiropractors will correct the “Subluxations.”  Once corrected the tension and stress to the nerve is removed and normal function is restored.  Normal function of the nervous system leads to optimal health, improved immune function, no back pain, improved cardiovascular function, improved lung function, optimal healing, and so on.  So as you can see if your spine is free of “Subluxations” your body will function optimally and you will be healthier.

It is our goal as your San Diego Chiropractor to remove any and all “Subluxations.”   If you are free of “Subluxations” you will be healthier.

After going through this whole concept he really started to understand the benefits of Chiropractic.  Like most people he had thought that Chiropractic was only for back pain.  The great thing is that our San Diego Chiropractic office is really good at alleviating back pain, but there is so much more that we can do.

Our practice members have gotten off medication, relief from headaches/migraines, relief from colitis/diverticulitis, relief from acid reflux, relief of allergies/asthma, and so on.  But here is the deal our San Diego Chiropractic office is not about eliminating symptoms we are about enhancing your bodies ability to function better so that you will be healthier.  Your body has an amazing ability to heal on its own, if given the right opportunity to heal.  The best opportunity to allow your body to heal naturally is being free of any “Subluxations.”

Even if you are not experiencing any symptoms whatsoever it is still good for you to get your spine checked by a San Diego Chiropractor.  Don’t wait until symptoms arrive take a proactive approach to your health.  Getting your spine checked regularly will ensure a healthy functioning body.

As you can see a San Diego Chiropractor can do so much more than just pain relief to keep you healthy and being under Chiropractic care is an essential part of being healthy.  Don’t wait until it is too late getting under care now is so much better and healthier for you than waiting until pain.
