Living with subluxation is a lot like jumping off the Empire State Building. Why? Because every floor on the way down the guy who jumped keeps yelling “I’m still fine”. Similarly people can live with subluxations without any pain, health problems, or conditions. Eventually the guy who jumped hits the bottom, and of course, he is no longer fine. Similarly, the effects of living with subluxation may catch up with a person. Then, “all of a sudden” they “have a problem”.
When did the problem start for the guy who jumped? When he first hucked himself off the building. When a person first gets subluxated, that is when the problem starts. It may be days, weeks, months, and likely years before it becomes a noticeable problem. How much better it would be to take those regular adjustments throughout life from birth to death instead of waiting around to hit bottom.
It is sad to see the condition of so many people’s spines who come to my office seeking help. They are told idiotic things like, their spine has age appropriate degeneration. It is like they (the doctors) think it is normal to have a degenerated spine. In fact, it is common, but it is not normal. If those spines were taken care of throughout life, they would be less likely to have any signs of degeneration at all.
Think about people’s teeth. It used to be very common, maybe even described as “normal” for older people to lose all their teeth and have dentures. Now that people brush, floss, get braces, and see their dentists, it is becoming much less common to lose all one’s teeth. Was it really normal, or just due to a lack of proper care?
I long for the day when every new parent starts their baby out being checked and adjusted by a chiropractor. And then, continues that practice regularly throughout their life. It is one reason why we do not charge for anyone under 18 years of age. It means more to me than money to see our children grow up free of subluxation.
Are you with me? See you (and your kids) for your next routine visit to be checked for subluxation, and adjusted as needed.
