We’re continuing our series all this week (and probably next) on health, and the role it plays in success and prosperity. Today let’s look at chiropractic care.
This can make a big difference in your wellness. Some of the obvious benefits of seeing a good chiropractor include pain relief in your joints, back, or head. Other maybe not so obvious benefits include increased mobility, performance, balance, coordination and energy.
Chiropractic care corrects “subluxations,” which is when your vertebrae place pressure on the nerves. Since your nervous system controls all functions of your body, including the immune system, chiropractic care can have a positive effect on keeping you healthy and energized.
Even if you’re not sick, your body still may be acquiring subluxations that are interfering with your nervous system and keeping you from optimal health. Regular chiropractic check-ups can help you to maintain a healthy immune system and stave off illnesses or allergies. Chiropractic adjustments will restore the balance of your nervous system and restore the flow of energy through your body.
Of course subluxations can be caused by serious trauma like sports injuries and car accidents. But they also happen from slow, long-term things like poor posture, sitting in a bad chair, driving with a thick wallet in your back pocket, etc.
Like some of the other topics we’re discussing, not all “mainstream” health care providers support chiropractic. Many MDs still think the only treatment for anything is drugs or cutting out an organ. That’s a result of the poor training in medical schools on health and some fear-based lack beliefs. I try to get an adjustment at least weekly, and really notice the fall off when I don’t. If you’re not incorporating chiropractic care in your wellness routine, integrate it into your health program and you’ll notice an immediate improvement.
If you’re in South Florida, I have two doctors I recommend:
In Broward county, Dr. Steve Feinzig practices in Hollywood. In addition to his chiropractic work, Steve incorporates cranial release, a fascinating technique which affects portions of the nervous system and its function that are not accessible through only spinal manipulation or soft tissue techniques. This helps with more lasting corrections. He’s also a master Yoga teacher, so he has a very holistic approach. He’s waiting for this Internet fad to blow over, so he doesn’t have a website. But you can find him on Facebook here.
Dr. Cora Llera practices here in Miami Beach. She’s another amazing healer and the author of the book, Signature Energy Work. It’s a fascinating book exploring the role of energy in healing. (And you should order and read no matter where you live.) Like Steve she incorporates energy into her work, and uses applied kinesiology to get the best results. Find her on her website: http://www.signatureenergywork.com/
When I was up in Detroit attending Shawne Duperon's Media Mastery Boot Camp I met and got several adjustments from Dr. Darren Schmidt. Great guy with a practice in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He also uses applied kinesiology, along with nutrition to better help you. Find him at: http://www.wholisticdoc.com/
And it's been so long since I was at my Sydney place, I almost forgot about my chiropractor there. Carol Langley is her name and facilitating healing in your body is her game. Get her at 430 850 852.
So what about the rest of you? Do you have a good chiropractor you recommend where you live? Please share their information below. Next post we'll look at structural integration with rolfing and soma therapy.
