Why We are Different
I want to share with you a little bit about why Chiropractic, and specifically our office, Seaside Chiropractic, is different from what you may be used to when it comes to your health care.
When you come in for an initial visit, you’ll have the opportunity to sit with either myself or Dr. Brendan and talk about YOU! We really want to know what’s going you on with you and what you’ve been through in your life, to really get a sense of how we can best serve you. Once we’ve had some time to connect and for you to share, we’ll do a thorough postural exam, look at you gait, and check your spine. Your spine is our window to check your nerve system. Our nerve system consists of our brain, our brain stem and our spinal cord. From our spinal cord, our nerves come out. They go between every bone in our spine, go out to every single part of our body, and control every single function. Our nerve system truly is the master control system of our body. So if we want to be functioning and operating as best as we possibly can, we need our nerve system functioning and operating at one hundred percent.
We are all human and we all have stressors. Through life’s stressors, whether it’s a physical thing like a repetitive motion, sitting at a desk all day, or traumas, such as a sports injury, a fall, a car accident; we could go on and on. Physical things put stress and tension on our body. We all have emotions, we all have relationships and finances, and it’s stressful. We store that tension in our body. And there are chemical stressors; we live in a very toxic environment. We have medications, we have chemicals in our cleaning products, in our food, our environment. We store that tension in our bodies. What happens when the body has an experience that it can’t process, that it can’t fully integrate, it stores that tension. It distorts our posture; it changes the physical structure in our body. When this happens, particularly over a period of time, our body can’t integrate this and we begin to get symptomatic. Symptoms can be neck pain, back pain, and headaches. They can also be digestive issues, they can be a sense of feeling overwhelmed, feeling outside yourself, feeling so stressed that you just can’t take a minute to breathe, anxiety, depression. Symptoms can be trouble with relationships, anything that happens to our body affects our body. When our body’s cup gets overburdened, we need a little bit of help to empty that cup, to integrate these experiences so that we can learn, grow, and evolve from all of life’s experiences instead of storing stress and tension, waiting for the next thing, waiting for the bus to come, waiting for a new job, a new partner, waiting to start living. When we integrate our experiences and own our lives, we can live fully and vibrantly express our fullest potential.
What you’ll notice about an adjustment in our office is that it’s very gentle, which can be very unique compared to some of the preconceived notions people have about Chiropractic care. Sometimes people get off the table feeling like nothing has happened. It’s when they start going about their day, or their week, or their month, that they realize they’re no longer yelling at their partner, or getting up in the morning isn’t so challenging. Maybe they’re choosing healthier food options; maybe it’s just a little bit easier to go exercise. Maybe you see the world in a slightly different light; it’s a little brighter today. We’re working with a subtle substance in the human body, and it is so subtle that sometimes we’re not tuned in enough to feel it. So what adjustments in our office will do is help awaken your body, enlighten your body, and enlighten your life. We all have an incredible amount of potential, and you deserve to express yours. We’re here to help you do that.
I can’t explain more about the adjustment to you, you have to come in and experience it for yourself. After your initial visit, you’ll be able to schedule your report. This is a second opportunity for you to sit down with myself or Dr. Brendan and go over your goals. We’ll let you know what we found in your body and how we can best serve you. You’ll let us know what you’re looking for, what you’re willing to change in your life, and we’ll come up with a plan that works best for you, your time, and your finances, and then we go from there. And the fun begins! As we start to unravel tension in your body and you start to express yourself, to really play your music, life truly is a better place!
Thanks for taking a moment to tune in and we look forward to seeing you in the office.
