Think of one of those two sided scales, similar to the scales of justice.
Everyday stresses that overwhelm your body's resistance and cause you to
become subluxated are on one side of the scale. Getting your spine checked and adjusted and all the other things you do to improve your life are on the other side.
Which side is overloaded?
When you first begin care you may need to be checked and adjusted more
frequently to change the memory of the abnormal vertebral subluxation patterns. Since you've been adding stress to the one side of the scale daily since birth, I have to try to overload the other
When your spine becomes stronger, it is usually better able to adapt and handle
many of these stresses which is why frequency of care is then usually reduced based on our objective findings.
Just keep in mind that because the stress side of the scale will never be
empty, neither should the side that requires you to get your spine checked regularly for the presence of vertebral subluxations. And you know, chances are that the more stress (emotional, chemical,
and physical) you are under, the more you may want to be checked.
Let's also not forget to introduce and share chiropractic with everyone we know
so that we can help balance their scale, or even tip it to the better functioning side.
