Column: Three levels of application for chiropractic

I have been in practice here in Lake Cowichan for 18 months and I can’t believe the response!

By Carl Weber

Wow! I have been in practice here in Lake Cowichan for 18 months and I can’t believe the response! I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for trusting us with your health and that of your family and friends.

I am especially amazed at the numbers of babies, toddlers and kids that you have referred for colic, breathing and digestive difficulties as well as health and wellness checkups and regular care. It’s so especially rewarding to me because ensuring the health of the next generation is so pivotal at every level for the wellbeing of our society.

Chiropractic is amazing! I see its delivery to you as having three levels of application to your health.

The first level is intended to reduce your headaches, asthma, spinal pain, acid reflux, menstrual pain, constipation, etc. by restoring the integrity of your spine and thus increasing the nerve supply that keeps all of your body healthful.

The second level includes regular chiropractic care to keep your spine supple. The regular adjustment of subluxations (chiropractic cavities) restores the movement that helps diminish the start of the wear and tear and degeneration that leads to spinal osteoarthritis. As a side effect of your adjustments, your spine should hurt less and less often.

The third level of care allows your nervous system to do a better job of integrating your health similar to increasing the speed and efficiency of your computer. At this level, the adjustment is delivered to your spine but the result is an improved nerve supply to every cell, organ and tissue in your body.

The level of care you choose for your family is completely up to you. A few neck adjustments to help you shoulder check more effectively, three months of care to get you fully prepared for golf season or a lifetime of wellness care for your entire family would be equally fine.

Every adjustment counts. Every adjustment matters. It’s always a privilege to help put the “being” back into a human being. Thanks again to all of you. Enjoy the festive season!

Peace, Carl
