It’s the beginning of the year and more people are in the gym for their New Year’s work out plan and to lose the extra 5-10 pounds that was gained over the holiday season. Strength and flexibility are essential elements in maintaining your motivation and desire to healthy living and keeping your New Year’s resolution. If your nervous system is not functioning fully free of interference, it is impossible to be truly healthy. Vertebral subluxation is one of the most common and most unrecognized causes of nerve interference. Vertebral subluxation is a misalignment of the spine that negatively affects the delicate nervous system as it travels through the spinal column and causes mechanical stress. In fact, physical stress is the number one cause of spinal subluxation. Spinal subluxation leads to interference with normal nerve supply from the brain to your body’s cells, organs, and tissues. If there is nerve interference within your spinal column, your body can’t function properly. For anyone who exercises, having your spine in proper alignment maximizes the biomechanical movement and is critical due to the physically stressful nature exercise has on the body.
Chiropractors correct the biomechanics relieving mechanical stress to the spine that creates irritation and interference to the flow of information across the complex and sensitive nerve system. When our spine is subluxation free the communication from the brain to the tissues is maximized which helps every cell, tissue and organ function at its highest level thus producing great results for our work outs. One would think that if people noticed increased health after starting their resolution, it would be enough motivation for them to stick with it. Many people start the process but don’t notice a difference in their overall health. This is the same reason why the healthiest families in the world, not to mention elite athletes in golf, baseball, football and basketball, make regular chiropractic care part of their health regimen.
One main question people have and cause them to give up on exercise and overall healthy living is how long should I exercise or eat right? These are just healthy lifestyle choices. Many people don’t recognize the value of having a nervous system free of interference and don’t understand the value of choosing regular adjustments to keep it that way.
