"Your body's ability to heal is greater than anyone has permitted you to believe."
Not only is that quote inspiring and thought-provoking, but we see the power of health and holistic healing in action every day in our practice in Chicago. Your body truly does have an incredible innate ability to adapt, change, and heal. Whether that means bouncing back after an acute injury or working to overcome chronic pain, your body just needs to have the opportunity to heal, and nature will take care of the rest. When was the last time you gave your body to chance to heal and get better? When was the last time you did something for yourself?
Why it Matters: Understanding your body's natural healing power isn't some out-there thought. The idea of health encompasses much more than living life without pain. The World Health Organization defines health as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well- being, not merely the absence of disease. This statement shows us that true health is multidimensional and also emphasizes the critical connection that exists between your brain and body. To put that all together...
You were born with an unbelievable ability to heal via your brain-body connection, which describes the complex interactions that occur between your brain and body.
Your brain coordinates all of your body’s systems (including your immune system) by communicating through your nervous system.
Your habits and the choices you make each day can either enhance or reduce your body's ability to reach its health potential.
Next Steps: Your nervous system is a key part of your overall health and wellness. Chiropractors are focused on the spine for exactly this reason. Since your spinal cord is protected by your spinal column, ensuring that you have proper spinal motion is important. Pain is just one of your body's indications that something is wrong, and if you’re near the Northside of Chicago and experiencing pain in or around your spine, schedule a visit with us today. We'll help you get moving in the right direction, naturally!
