You get your eyes, ears and teeth checked. You test your blood. You measure your height, weight, blood pressure, heart rate, vitamin B12 levels and body mass index. Your Fitbit device tracks all of your biometric data, from how many steps you take to the quality of your sleep. When it comes to monitoring your health, no stone goes unturned. Except one, and it’s a biggie: How many times do you get your posture, spine, or spinal alignment checked?
After all, whether you realize it or not, you have endured countless physical trials in your lifetime. You experienced the trauma of being born, and you’ve fallen from couches, trees and monkey bars. You’ve had stitches, sports injuries, broken limbs, and car accidents. Not to mention the fact that you’ve clocked about a million hours hunched over your computers, tablets and cell phones, with your head cranked forward and downwards in a less-than-ideal position.
And maybe now you find yourself noticing various health symptoms–aches and pains, headaches, low-back strain, digestive issues. You find you get sick a lot and generally feel unwell. Yet it has never occurred to you to check the very circuit board that runs literally everything in your body—your spine and nervous system. What if the nerves in your spine are under so much stress from poor alignment that they’re expressing the symptoms of ill health?
How healthy is your spine? How healthy is your child’s spine? Maybe it’s time to find out today. Because Chiropractors know a health secret that no one talks about: Great alignment = Improved health performance!
Are you ready to turn the power back on?
