Have you been looking for a chiropractor in Escondido? Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, the chiropractic care offered at Escalante Chiropractic and Sports Therapy in Escondido emphasizes the importance of improving your health in an effort to reduce the risk of pain and illness in the first place.
In the human body, it is a scientific fact that the nervous system, comprised of the brain, spinal cord and spinal nerves, controls every organ and tissue. Any interference to the messages that the Nervous System sends to every part of the body will result in illness or disease. One of the most common causes of this interference is improper movement of the spinal column and its surrounding structures. As a result of this improper movement of the spinal column, the vertebrae and joints can get damaged and injured. This is what we call a SUBLUXATION.
There are many ways a person can cause a subluxation, from any type of PHYSICAL STRESS (auto accidents, falls, sports injuries), to CHEMICAL STRESS (dehydration, improper nutrition, chemical dependencies), to even EMOTIONAL STRESS (worry, anger, stress, depression).
These subluxations (misaligned vertebra that puts pressure on a spinal nerve) can then produce a variety of health problems such as weakness of muscles, decreased sensation or numbness, and mal-function of organs and tissues which are supplied by those nerves. Spinal mis-alignment may also cause the compressed nerve to stretch or get irritated. This can cause the messages that go to and from the brain, to be distorted. In the end, hyperactive organ function, high blood pressure, or even pain, are the result.
In today’s society, it is common to accept the medical approach of putting chemicals into the bloodstream to artificially change the way the body works. Just a few examples: Laxatives are used to speed up elimination, antacids to reduce stomach acid, and now even new pills to stop a menstrual cycle! Tragically, it is not uncommon for these drugs to cause side effects, like kidney damage, and even fatal mistakes. After all is said and done, all these drugs do is ignore the real cause of the problem.
The good news is that chiropractic care instead focuses on the proper function of the nervous system. Thus, by eliminating any interference to the Nervous System, the whole body (all it’s organs, tissues and cells) is able to work optimally and naturally. The way it was meant to be.
Chiropractic is natural. It’s simple. And it honors the wisdom of your body. It has helped millions enjoy relief and better health for more than a century.
