The quote above by Martha Graham (a revolutionary dancer and choreographer) sums up what Mt. Airy Chiropractic has to offer – the fullest expression of LIFE! Chiropractic releases Life Energy so that you may fully express the perfection that is unique to you. Life Energy is the essence that is present in a living body and absent in a dead body. Your health and vitality depend on the presence and fullest expression of Life Energy.
THE NERVE SYSTEM
The nerve system is the medium by which Life Energy is transferred for all of life’s processes. Life Energy travels from the brain, down the spinal cord, inside all your nerves, and out to all of the body’s organs, tissues, and cells and returns back up again faster than the speed of light. It is through our nerve system that we express and experience life.
Subluxations are the physical manifestation of an un-integrated life experience resulting in a distortion of one or more the 26 spinal components (vertebrae, sacrum, coccyx). The distortion is not a localized event; the WHOLE body and ALL systems are affected – structurally, chemically, emotionally, and tonally. The subluxation results in nerve system interference and dissonance,
The subluxation is a temporary adaptation that our body’s intelligence coordinated as a way to survive. In an ideal world, we would "un-subluxate", and be able to integrate all of life’s experiences on our own. However, we recognize the stored subluxation is housed in our bodies until we are better suited to fully integrate the experience.
A subluxated state results in a loss of the ability to optimally adapt to your environment due to an uncoordinated nerve system, increased tension in the body, and overall, decreased flexibility in the body, sometimes leading to pain, discomfort, dysfunction and dis-ease.
"There is a vitality, a life-force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost.”
THE CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT
Subluxations are corrected and/or reduced by chiropractic adjustments. An adjustment is the specific application of forces to correct and/or reduce subluxations and interference to the flow of Life Energy. The adjustment is done to the spine and related spinal components. Adjustments at Mt. Airy Chiropractic are done by hand.
If during the course of care we encounter non-chiropractic or unusual findings, we will advise you and recommend that you seek the services of another healthcare provider.
