I love it when people I care for comment about how good they feel after being adjusted, how they feel “lighter”, “high” “grounded”, “energized” and “calmer”. Often I watch their faces light up and their bodies relax right in the office.
What causes it? The simple answer, and what I tell the kids in my practice – your power is turned on! The neurological answer is this: there is a part of your brain, the limbic system, that plays an important role in your moods and sense of wellbeing. There are receptors for the cells in this system throughout your spinal cord, and when you have a spinal subluxation they are blocked. The adjustment corrects the subluxation, removes pressure on your spinal cord and lets the receptors in the specific segments signal your brain properly…yes, you should feel happy and well most of the time!
There’s a reason why so many people choose to make spinal care part of their lifestyle! Chiropractic helps your body function the way it was designed to.
