Chiropractic is the largest natural health care profession in the world. The power of touch is immense; it is also the first sensation we acquire as an infant. At BoDo Chiropractic we regain your organic fluency in your first language, in this fast paced world were we often get disconnected from our bodies and ourselves.
Well if you think about it, we all have this thing called Innate Intelligence which lives inside every living organism. Innate Intelligence is the vital life force (the Nervous System) within the body (protected by the spine) that enables healing and proper health unless impaired by interference which is also known as spinal subluxation.
We are all born with this innate intelligence, which is 100% intelligent unless there is interference, interference (subluxation) is caused by a stressor (chemical, emotional, and/or physical.)Chiropractic was unveiled in 1895 in Davenport, Iowa by DD Palmer, and then later revolutionized by his son BJ Palmer.
There is an Art, Science and Philosophy to Chiropractic, the major premise being: A Universal Intelligence is in all matter and continually gives to it all its properties and actions, thus maintaining it in existence.
Often times there is stored stress within your body that interferes with the transmission of your innate intelligence. Our role as a Chiropractor is to remove the interference with a Chiropractic adjustment. We find these subluxations (literally means less light expressing) via state of the art Electromyography, palpation, motion palpation, muscle testing and in certain cases x-ray, in order to regain proper communication within your nervous system also known as a MIND-BODY connection. The word on the street (Urban Myth) is that Chiropractors are back and neck doctors, we often hear “Oh I haven’t needed to see a Chiropractor, I have a “good back” but this couldn’t be further from the truth. We are doctors that analyze the function of your nervous system, which lives in your brain and spine, communicating with EVERY FUNCTION of your body. So don’t you think that it would be important to get checked? After all do you only go to the Dentist for a root canal, or do you go periodically to make sure you don’t have to do that in the future. Preventative/Wellness care is our goal!
“90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine,” says Dr. Roger Sperry, Nobel Prize recipient for brain research. Dr. Sperry demonstrated that 90 percent of the energy output of the brain is used in relating the physical body to gravity. Only 10 percent has to do with thinking, metabolism, and healing.
