(continuation of “Subluxation, compensation, and the chiropractic adjustment”)
Just because a puppy yelps when you step on its tail doesn’t mean you need to check its mouth to fix what’s wrong. Get your foot off its tail!
By locating and adjusting you Subluxation vs. Compensation, your entire body can begin to reset, re-align and begin the healing process. Notice it is a healing process, not a healing event. By finding the subluxation versus the compensation, usually only a few adjustments need to be made each visit. At times the adjustment will be nowhere near the pain or symptom.
If we honor your process, listen to your body and adjust the cause versus trying to mask the symptom, we will get optimal results. If we try to do too much too fast, and try to make a compensation feel better versus simply adjusting the subluxation, we will take energy and focus away from what really needs to be corrected and we will not gain any ground.
