Sydney chiropractor tells the tooth about your spine and disc hernia
SYDNEY CHIROPRACTOR TELLS THE TOOTH ABOUT YOUR SPINE AND DISC HERNIA.
Unlike your teeth your spine never gets to rest, there is postural strain when you sit, walk or run, there can be massive loads in your spine when lifting and especially sports strains the back a lot… even when lying down you put strain in your spine! There is no doubt the mechanics of the spine is more complex than your teeth and can be much more trouble prone. The results can be spondylosis of the vertebra, osteoarthritis in the facet joints, disc tear, disc prolapse or herniation, spinal stenosis, nerve compression, joint sprains etc etc etc. And like dentisty, chiropractic not only helps once there is a definite problem but chiropractic is best used before injury in a preventative healthcare model. As Arnold Schwarzenegger says “Body builders and fitness people have been using chiropractic extensively in order to stay healthy and fit. I found it was better to go to a chiropractor before you get injured.”
That’s why chiropractors are becoming more involved in community health, as this preventative health care to help avoid unnecessary spinal damage occuring in the first place. And more importantly, chiropractors want to improve your spinal health because it is heavily integrated with your nervous system (which is the part of your body that makes the rest of your body work – that’s kind of important!). So the better your spinal function, the better your nervous system function can be and when your nervous system is able to control everything in your body, you have the foundation for wellness. But I’ll write about that another time.
