The human body is an amazing and complicated system that regulates itself in many ways. When you are hot, you perspire to bring moisture to the skin and cool you down. When you run, your lungs adjust to provide more oxygen, and when you have too much water and minerals in your body, osmoregulation happens through your kidneys. But it’s a delicate balance, and that’s where Joslyn Chiropractic Center in Pontiac can keep you on the road to wellness.
What Chiropractors Do to Support Health
If you’ve got the idea that a Doctor of Chiropractic care only helps with backaches, you’ve fallen behind the times. Chiropractic care sets the stage for the mind and body to heal itself, but along the way, our chiropractor can perform spinal manipulation or adjustments to relieve pain, improve the function of your arms and legs, and alleviate stress on your entire body.
As noted in a JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) review on the incorporation of Complementary and Alternative Medicine, manipulation and body-based methods such as Chiropractic provide alternative and complementary approaches to care once dominated by mainstream physicians.
In addition to spinal adjustments, Joslyn Chiropractic Center offers therapeutic touch and massage therapy, as well as posture advice, corrective exercises, and nutritional counseling. The care we provide is the basis for helping your body to homeostasis, that wonderful pain-free stability our body is always trying to achieve.
Unfortunately, when it does come to our bodies, spinal misalignments are taxing and painful. And, they can lead to poor immune response. Our nervous system works tirelessly with our endocrine system and immune system while our spine protects the nerves that run through it. However, subluxation, or misalignment, causes compression of those nerve pathways which affect our body’s organs.
When our spine is in pain or misalignment, the endocrine system produces a stress hormone in the adrenal glands called cortisol, which in turn inhibits the immune system.
