Tensegrity: “Complex structures are in a constant state of tension and compression; the continual interaction of pushing and pulling forces perfectly balanced with one another lead to immense self-sustained stability and structural integrity.”
Architect Buckminster Fuller first introduced this concept in 1961 for the buildings he designed. Years later, scientists began to see the parallels of how our bodies work the same way! They realized that the spine acts as a cornerstone of our body, keeping everything else balanced and in its place.
If spinal bones become misaligned, this puts pressure on our nerves. These nerves deliver special messages for extremely specific functions in our body. When that communication is interrupted, feeling AND function can cease to operate fully as it should. Neurologically based chiropractic care offers better quality of life, helping our bodies to start functioning better from the cellular level by restoring this loss of communication.
Getting adjusted not only regulates and helps to relieve pain, but can also result in better sleep, better immune system, and so much more! If there were any possible way to handle stress better, not be sick, and have more energy to spend time with the ones we love, wouldn’t we want to make that happen?
“The biggest difference is that it has improved my immune system!”
I got introduced to chiropractic when I was 18 years old and had watched my mother (who suffered from migraines her whole life) get amazing relief! I began going to the chiropractor because I understood the concept that our bodies were meant to be healthy and were meant to self-heal! At the young age of 18, I began to see the chiropractor to make sure that my nervous system is free of any interference. The biggest difference is that it has improved my immune system. After all, your nervous system controls and coordinates every function in the body, including your immune system. I now have been getting adjusted for over 12 years and I can’t remember the last time I was sick. When kids are sick around me and others are passing around the flu and cold, I may cough and sneeze for ½ a day and that’s it! Being a dancer, a runner, and a yogi, I have such great movement and just feel amazing! I keep coming back because I know that life happens and so does physical stress. There’s no getting rid of that. But, getting chiropractic care helps our bodies adapt to those stresses! My whole family knows the value of regular chiropractic care and we will continue to be checked for subluxations for the rest of our lives! – Jina
