Chiropractic and Health

Dr. H.D. Greene
“With plenty of nerve force, there is life and health; with little nerve force the body is weak and sick, and without it there is no life at all.” -Daniel David Palmer, D.C.

The nervous system (brain, spinal cord, nerves) controls and coordinates all functions of the body. Nerves go to all the organs, glands, muscles, and to every tissue cell of the body and carry human electricity, which is life force, vital energy, health current.

Life is the expression of tone. Tone is the normal amount of vital energy flowing at all times through the nerves that activates the function, control, and performance of the cells, glands, and organs.

Messages sent between brain and body through the nerves can be interfered with by spinal misalignments which in Chiropractic are called vertebral subluxations. A good example would be a dimmer switch or rheostat turned down, lessening the output of current.

Chiropractic helps a wide variety of symptoms and conditions by removing nerve interference in the spinal column, by adjusting the misplaced vertebra back into position which allows the body to then naturally heal itself through improved coordination and communication between brain and body.

However,  health is not merely the absence of symptoms, infirmity and/or disease, but a state of complete physical, mental, and social well being.

Many people only view Chiropractic as being about pain relief, specifically back and neck pain.  It is true that the relief experienced by millions of people is a testament to Chiropractic’s unparalleled expertise at relieving pain symptoms. This is why Chiropractic is the largest drugless healing profession in the world. However, Chiropractic is about much more than mere pain relief. It’s really not about feeling LESS by smothering symptoms, on the contrary it’s actually about being, and feeling MORE, being more alive, and experiencing quality of life more fully. So, Chiropractic is actually about LIFE.

No one has to have symptoms, or manifested health problems to come to a Chiropractor. They may have it, but they may not. They can benefit from Chiropractic care regardless of whether they have symptoms/problems or not. Chiropractic is just a POSITIVE for the human physiology.

A true understanding of Chiropractic leads to a life without fear, or a life with trust, a trust in the innate wisdom of the body, a trust in the power of the life force to regenerate, heal, maintain and sustain the body.

At Greene Chiropractic, the focus is on releasing the dimmer switch, releasing the rheostat, and allowing more life force, more vital energy, more health current to flow through the system… imagine what could happen if you get Chiropractic adjustments on a regular basis.
