Judging your health by how you feel can be dangerous! The first symptom of high blood pressure is often a deadly stroke. The first symptom of heart disease could be a fatal heart attack! Because your body is so adaptive, by the time many symptoms warn you of a problem, it can be well advanced.
You can be healthy and still not feel well. Vomiting after eating improperly prepared food is a healthy response. Taking a drug to prevent your body from expelling the toxic food could be deadly! Fevers, diarrhea, and other symptoms are natural ways your body responds to infection and disease.
Many patients who enter a chiropractic office have specific health care concerns ranging from back pain to headaches, leg pain to asthma. It surprises many when they discover that Doctors of Chiropractic don't treat symptoms. A medical approach is to treat symptoms. This is done by using drugs or surgery to numb, slow down, speed up or cut out the malfunctioning body part. Instead, Chiropractors find the underlying cause(s) of your body's malfunction, ache or pain, and help correct it.
This means that Chiropractors don't have an asthma adjustment, a headache adjustment or a back pain adjustment. They adjust the spine as required in every individual person in such a way as to remove the interference to nerves thus allowing your body to function more normally. Of course when nerve function improves and the body is functioning more optimally symptoms improve as a natural consequence.
Proper function, controlled by your nerve system, is the key to health. Fortunately, the proper function of your nerve system is the primary interest of your chiropractic doctor.
