Is your adjustment something that can be undone? If you leave the office and get into a motor vehicle accident, was your adjustment ruined? If you said yes to either of these questions, allow me to better explain the function of an adjustment.
A subluxation is not merely a misplaced vertebra. An adjustment is not merely a restoration of that vertebras normal position within the spine. A subluxation includes a disruption of nerve transmission, often involving altered physiology. An adjustment provides neurological input which changes brain function and restores normal nerve transmission allowing for improved physiological adaptation.
Think of it this way – if you are choosing to eat wings and pizza for dinner, you know that it is going to have a negative impact on your physiology. If you eat a cup of raw carrots and then binge on cheesy dough, do the carrots no longer count? Did you negate the benefits of the carrots? Of course not. Your body still uses the fiber, vitamin A, and enzymes.
The same is true with your adjustments. When we deliver the adjustive thrust, your body uses that information to reorganize and restore. If you get rear-ended leaving our parking lot, that information is not lost. If anything, you are more equipped to adapt to the destructive force with a clearly functioning nerve system.
Bottom line: You are always better after an adjustment. So run, jump, play, work, fall, spin, love with the confidence that you are functioning strong and resilient!
