True chiropractic care in a principled practice believes that health exists when the body is in a state of wholeness; it understands its own constantly-changing needs, and is able to respond to them on its own. Chiropractic care doesn’t heal injuries; rather, it helps the body to engage its own incredible natural healing abilities through a long-term routine of preventative healthcare maintenance for the nervous system.
Preventative healthcare focuses on your entire nervous system: your brain, spinal cord, and every one of the millions of nerve connections throughout your body. It monitors your entire body and all its needs, to help control and coordinate the necessary responses that allow the body to learn, adapt and constantly maintain its own health and wellness.
The common healthcare model in the United States is the sick care model. It only looks at your body after symptoms of illness present, and then considers how best to treat these symptoms. When one considers that there are thousands of syndromes, diseases and health issues out there, this creates an equal number of potential complications and problems with treating sickness.
The preventative healthcare chiropractic model, on the other hand, is entirely natural, non-invasive, doesn’t rely on chemicals, and looks to the root cause of your underlying healthcare issues. At Awaken Chiropractic, Dr. Alex Willard is focused entirely on correcting spinal subluxations to allow your whole nervous system to communicate better and increase the body’s overall healing abilities. This improves your ability to adapt to stress and a variety of health conditions, and helps to restore you to normal, healthy and optimal function.
If you are injured during physical activity, through a car accident or a slip-and-fall, you may experience a misalignment of your spine that is responsible for a range of aches, pain, soreness and lack of mobility and function. Likewise, poor posture can result in decreased strength, mobility and in soreness, stiffness and pain. Regular trips to a Parker chiropractor like Dr. Alex Willard can correct these underlying problems and get you feeling like new once more.
Everyone from newborns to the elderly can benefit from regular chiropractic care, including addressing symptoms like headaches, back and neck pain, stiffness, joint pain, mood swings and a range of other disorders, some of which you may not even realize come from a spinal subluxation. A chiropractor, through gentle, non-invasive, hands-on techniques can alleviate your pain and get you back to a lifetime of health and wellness.
