Chiropractic: Why Brain Care Beats Pain Care
1- Pain is a Purposeful Pattern. Rather than interrupt it with artificial means, determine how the pattern is protecting so you can decide how best to support it.
2- Injuries repair themselves in days to weeks, provided the muscles are toned and organs are working efficiently.
3- Most of the time I am dealing with people whose bodies were not prepared for stress events. We are usually in “catch up mode.”
4- Fight-or-Flight is a valuable nervous system pattern but it can exhaust our reserves when we take it for granted.
5- Drugs and surgery do not alleviate prolonged Fight-or-Flight which is why we must pursue a different approach for our long term well being.
(Prolonged Fight-or-Flight is mistreated by mainstream health care because they are too narrowly focused on the effects rather than the cause and misplace the blame on inflammation.)
6- Calling nervous system patterns a disease or sickness ignores the true nature of the body's systems, incites a fear response that worsens the situation further exhausting the body. (More need for “catch up mode.”)
7- Chiropractic helps people in pain by re-engaging the prefrontal cortex. The adjustment interrupts a stress pattern like a switch and shifts the brain to repair/rebuild. However, cellular movement is painful as the body is rebuilding tissues and excreting waste. Appropriate repair avoids the disappointment of weakened or poorly re-formed tissues/joints. We can support this process with chiropractic maintenance, nutrition, and stress management.
Improving comfort is a more reasonable approach than stopping pain prematurely.
Let's move from “Catch Up Mode” to “Wellness Mode.”
“Catch Up Mode” = Replenish Reserves
“Wellness Mode” = Maintain Reserves
I ask my folks to look at their health differently. I ask them to understand the innate wisdom of the body's self regulating system. I ask them to work in sync with this system, and not against it. It foes require to replacing old vocabulary with new.
Let me hear them.
