Chiropractic Spinal with Upper & Lower Extremity Adjustments

In order to maintain, heal, and help your body, your brain needs to have the ability to communicate with the different parts of your body.  It does so through a series of nerves that serve as the body’s communication system.  When a part of your body needs something, it sends a signal through this nerve system to your brain which then sends back the necessary signals in order to provide the required help.

The main part of this nervous system is your spinal cord.  It’s housed and protected by your vertebrae which bend and twist with each of your movements.  There are discs between each vertebra that act as thick cushions while ligaments, tendons and muscles help hold the discs in position.  Full ranges of motion, no popping or clicking of joints or tenderness should be present.

Your vertebrae and musculo-skeletal joints always get shifted out of place through accidents or daily routines of living and working.  These misalignments are called subluxations. When these subluxations occur your body misinterprets signals from your brain. Lesions and dysfunction begin to occur. The pain, illness and disease that people experience often takes years to develop. As a result people begin to loose their strength and  flexibilty.  When this happens your body begins to perform in a less than optimal way. Your overall physical, chemical and emotional resistances lessen You become more susceptible to illness, injury, fatigue, lack of function.

A natural, non-invasive solution to this problem can be the chiropractic spinal adjustment.  Dr. Bob Seiler is a Salt Lake City, Utah holistic chiropractic physician who performs full-spine, upper and lower extremity chiropractic adjustments. These chiropractic adjustments can be given very gently by hand or very gently by a neuromechanical chiropractic instrument.  Weekly and monthly chiropractic adjustments can maximize your overall health and well-being. You can be less sick and more resistant to injury, pain, illness or disease. Or you can wait until your body and mind begin the sinking process and then ask for help. Not all chiropractic physicians have the same touch nor practice chiropractic the same way. If you, a friend or a loved one has ever had a unpleasant experience with a chiropractic adjustment please give Dr. Bob with his gentleness and caring a second chance. You’ll be glad you did for many health reasons. By adjusting your vertebrae to remove the subluxation your nervous system begins to restore optimal communication to your brain and to the rest of your body and mind.

In most cases, your body wants to and will heal itself, but your body and mind need the right adjustments, stimulation and inputs to make those changes. Daily physical, chemical and emotional stresses of life wear the body and mind down. Regular chiropractic adjustments can energize your entire being. Receive holistic chiropractic care before you feel the pain, illness or disease. It really comes down to taking care of your own body, because your body cannot take care of itself. Regular chiropractic checkups and adjustments will pay great dividends.

Don’t hesitate to call Dr. Bob, a Salt Lake City holistic chiropractic physician, so that he can consult you as to what treatment is best for you as well as promote your body’s health and wellness and longevity on a daily basis.

Dr. Bob’s New Services at Holistic Chiropractic & Wellness: Taking It To The Next Level, Naturally and Holistically

Over my twenty-five years in the healthcare profession I’ve worked with many people with different forms and levels of pain from what I believe comes from the constant physical, chemical and emotional stresses that people unknowingly are exposed to, which in turn lead to oxidative stresses and free radicals in their bodies. These life-long stresses can erode the energy systems of your body and mind, which can eventually be displayed as symptoms, headaches, pain, obesity, different chemical-physical-emotional-mental aberrations / dysfunctions, chronic illness and disease.
