Wellness chiropractic in Prior Lake is in high demand. According to the top Google search, wellness is defined as the state of being in good health, especially as an actively pursued goal.
Here, we believe that there is a direct relationship between the resilience of one’s spine and their potential for true wellness.
When the spine is in alignment, there is better mobility in the whole body. When we move better, we feel better. Plain and simple. Joseph Pilates said “You are as old as your spine.”
We know that you value your health, and we strive to make it an enjoyable pursuit.
You may just be trying to stay on top of your game OR you may be trying to break through to that next level. Either way, upper cervical chiropractic care is one of the most resourceful things you can do for your health, and your health is your greatest resource.
We don’t add or subtract anything. Our Prior Lake chiropractic office simply removes nerve interference in a very unique and gentle way.
Have you ever sat on a stool that just wasn’t right? The higher it is the scarier it is—especially if it doesn’t have a back to it.
With the spine, the stool can be wobbly but you might not know it right away. If you catch yourself bending in an awkward position and hear a popping noise and your original pain returns it’s safe to say that you lost your adjustment at that moment in time. But usually it’s more subtle.
Brain fog or inability to pay attention to the task at hand, feeling “run down” and more easily stressed out also may be signs that you’ve lost your adjustment. These are delayed responses, some times taking up to weeks to appear after the spinal subluxation returns. Because of this, they’re not the best indicators as to whether or not you need an adjustment.
One thing is for sure, when you do get adjusted the thing we monitor here above all else is the leg length differential or hip level. The part of the brain that controls this is the vestibular nucleus.
Now, to get to the vestibular nucleus, we had to go by way of the brain stem and cerebellum. At the speed of sound, the cerebellum also affects the amygdala (stress and anxiety center), the hippocampus (our memory and learning center), and the hypothalamus (the main player in our hormonal system). That’s why it’s not uncommon for someone to come in because of lower back pain and they notice they’re handling stress better and sleeping better!
Fixing the wobbly stool makes all four legs work better.
