In 18 years of practice, I have groomed and fine-tuned the chiropractic principles I was taught in chiropractic school. What follows is what I believe…it is my personal, professional philosophy. -By Troy Bruesewitz, DC
I knew I wanted to be a Chiropractor by age 15.
I raced motocross in my teens and early twenties. I’ve had countless injuries over the years. Had I let those minor traumas to my body (especially my spine) remain uncorrected, I would likely be run down and arthritic by now. When I felt a kink in my spine, I would promptly get adjusted and always felt much better shortly thereafter.
The degenerative process begins within a few weeks following any injury that subluxated our spine.
“Subluxation” is the misalignment or dysfunction of any joint within our body. Most often, this term is used to describe kinks in the spine.
Chiropractic is the practice of adjusting the joints (especially vertebrae) that are subluxated (out of alignment, fixated, or both). Just as the tires on your car will have excessive wear and tear if they are subluxated, so will the joints in your body.
Degenerative arthritis of the spine could be significantly reduced, if not completely prevented, if your joints were able to avoid prolonged fixation.
Having your spine free of subluxation also reduces stress on your entire nervous system.
If your spine is healthy, then it will not degenerate. Degeneration causes bone spurs and bulging discs that irritate, inflame, and impinge the delicate tissues of the central nervous system housed within the spinal column.
More than 2,500 people die every day from Heart Disease! Does Chiropractic prevent heart Disease? Hmmm… Chiropractic prevents interference from overwhelming and impinging your nervous system… the system that helps control EVERY function in your body. Keep your nervous system free from interference, and your body will function optimally for your entire life.
