What Is Chiropractic ?   Leave a comment

Chiropractic begins with the principle that the human organism has an innate power to maintain its own health. The art of chiropractic focuses on adjustments to correct spinal malfunctions, called Subluxations, in order to remove interference to the spinal cord and the nerves that exit between the bones of the spine. Science has found that the nerve system controls all other organs and tissues of the body, so a nerve system functioning at its best facilitates the body’s ability to cope and heal from disability and disease. Because of its potential to enable patients to live healthier, more fulfilling lives, chiropractic has been called “The Big Idea.”

The chiropractic approach to health care is holistic, stressing the patient’s overall well being. It recognizes that many factors affect health, including exercise, diet, rest, environment and heredity. Chiropractic focuses on maintaining optimal health naturally so that the body is better able to resist disease, rather than simply treating the symptoms of disease. Chiropractors use natural, drug-less, non-surgical health care and rely on the body’s inherent recuperative abilities.
When bones of the spine become misaligned or move out of their normal position, they can distort the flow of information from the brain to the body. Without the proper information from the nerve system, the body cannot function to its full potential. That’s why chiropractors gently correct these mis-alignments (or vertebral Subluxations) – to correct interference to the nerve system and the body’s ability to control and coordinate its many functions.

Chiropractic Care for the Entire Family   Leave a comment

Chiropractic care is beneficial for all family members, including pre-schoolers, teenagers, and grandparents. As good health is often based upon good spinal health, making sure that everyone’s spine is functioning properly is a key component in maintaining a family’s well-being.

Your spinal column houses and protects your spinal cord, which connects your brain with every organ, tissue, and cell in your body. Irritation caused by a decrease in or loss of full spinal mobility may negatively impact the flow of information within the spinal cord, resulting in muscular aches and pains, lack of restful sleep, nervousness, headaches, and disease. By helping ensure optimum functioning of your spinal column, chiropractic care helps address the causes of these various problems at their source. In this way, chiropractic care helps people of all ages achieve better health and optimum well-being.

Is 60 the New 40?   Leave a comment

“60 is the New 40” is more than a marketing slogan. The phrase is also a metaphor for optimism, as well as a metaphor for good health.

How can 60 really be the new 40? First, there are the demographics. Forty years ago, when today’s 40-year-olds were just being born, 40 was a fairly substantial age. In the early 1970s, every 40-year-old had lived through World War II. For the Americans, many of the men fought in the Korean War and some may even have fought in the Vietnam War. In the early 1970s, most women had had their first child by age 25. Today, child-rearing years for adults frequently begin in their 30s and even late into their 40s. Life expectancy in 1970 was approximately to age 71. Today, average life expectancy is to age 79 or 80. Putting everything together, it can reasonably be stated that our “senior years” keep getting pushed further and further back.

“60 is the new 40” means there is plenty of productive life ahead. The phrase implies that, if one is ready, able, and motivated, whole new aspects of living can be explored. Whereas in 1970, 40-year-olds were often beginning to be established in middle-management roles in their white-collar companies, or were becoming shop stewards and supervisors in their factories, today men and women in their 60s are becoming entrepreneurs and launching their own businesses. Backed by a lifetime of experience, people in their 60s are going back to school to get the undergraduate or graduate degree of their dreams, or they’re setting up shop for themselves as artists, artisans, or consultants. Regardless of the particular individual choice, the point is that people in their 60s are manifesting the spirit and vision that was previously thought to be the special province of those much younger, specifically, men and women in their 20s and 30s. But it would be a stretch to say that “60 is the new 30”, so we’ll stick with “60 is the new 40”.

But these new activities and endeavors require physical resources and energy.1 If one is not healthy, 60 may in fact not be the new 40. If one is not enjoying good health, then one’s focus is usually primarily directed toward getting well. For 60 to really be the new 40, that is, for one to be fully engaged with family, friends, and work, for one to be focusing on the present and maintaining a positive, expectant attitude toward the future, an optimum state of health is required. Such an optimum varies from person to person. What is needed is for us to be functioning at our optimum. Such maximal functioning is based upon numerous factors, including a healthy, nutritious diet,2,3 regular vigorous exercise, and consistent, sufficient rest. Putting these lifestyle choices into place and making these elements of healthy living habitual will go far toward helping all of us make our chronological age irrelevant.
