Your Car & Your Spine: Who's Behind the Wheel (of Wellness)?

I like to use car analogies to help people understand the seriousness of subluxations on their spines. Cars are crucial to our everyday functioning because we need them for getting to work, school, and visit Aunt Martha in Vermont.

We understand perfectly why maintenance on our cars pays off in big ways for us. Oil changes, spark plugs, air filters, and tire pressure get checked and replaced on a regular basis. It protects us from being stranded on the highway late at night and can save lives by preventing motor vehicle accidents.

Salt is not the car's best friend. In fact, we can get quite obsessed about it because salt is unavoidable in the winter. Salt gets inside on the floor and under the car. Even with modern manufacturing, rust still takes hold, although it may not be as obvious or detrimental to safety (like falling through the floor of the car--my foot nearly did that once).

Subluxations are similar. When spinal joints are injured by physical stress, dietary stress, and hormonal wear and tear initiated by emotional stress (probably the worst kind of stress on the spine) they lose normal mobility which harms the nerves, muscles, blood flow, and bone density. It's just as quiet as rust and not noticeable at first.

Reducing subluxations before they are noticeable is the easiest way to take care of this problem. That's where the regular maintenance comes in. Car parts can be replaced. An entire care can be replaced. Humans, on the other hand, cannot be replaced and our bodies do not care for artifical parts. Even with the remarkable improvements in artificial joints, the body knows the difference between living tissue and something that is not.

Many chiropractors believe it is a waste and unethical to adjust people who are not in pain, but the earliest signs of subluxations are not painful. Dirty oil in a car doesn't do critical damage early on, but why wait??

The Chiropractic DNA Study published in 2005 shows the differences between "well adjusted people" and those who do not get adjusted.
