Need the correct brain info to feet
There are four major reasons why patients with foot pain show up at Life Reset Chiropractic (see ‘Foot pain – Chiropractic‘). Here’s an expansion on the first one involving foot pain: Subluxations/Poor Nerve Supply. Your Central Nervous System (brain, spinal cord, nerve roots, peripheral nerves) supplies every muscle, organ, gland and cell of your body. There is a specific amount of nervous system information that has to be in place in order for your body to function normally. Without the brain connection every muscle, organ and gland does not know what to do.
Each of us are athletes in life. It takes less energy to run a fine tuned body.
Brain is like a power strip
Imagine your brain as a high level power strip. It not only plugs into every muscle, organ and gland, but there is also a volume control on each connection. The volume of electricity or energy from your brain to your leg muscles could be turned down really low. You would experience weak leg muscles, lack of coordination, inability to build muscles up and so much more. The final branch of nerves to the foot and ankle are located in the lower part of the spinal cord. This is called the lumbosacral area.
Foot = 26 bones & 33 joints
In the foot, there are 26 bones (28 if you count the sesamoid bones at the base of the big toe). There are 33 major joints. Each normal joint performs movements in multiple directions. Normal joint movements stimulate the foot and ankle for healthy circulation, nerve flow and balance.
Normal joint movement creates a clear flow of nerve system information. Your balance and coordination are strengthened. You trust your movements. You are more confident moving through life. You are better at whatever sport you choose. Chiropractic adjustments coupled with specific exercises fine tunes your body’s balance from the foundation of the feet up. You operate at your peak performance no matter if you are an athlete or an athlete in life. You will play at the top of your game: soccer, baseball, basketball, running, hiking, biking, dancing, golf, climbing just to mention a few. Clear strong normal brain information connects to your feet and ankles.
Athletes maximize their peak performance and strength with regular chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic adjustments to the feet, ankles, knees and hips give athletes a new competitive edge & personal best.
Chiropractors focus on abnormal joint movement which chiropractors call subluxations. When joints do not move normally this affects the complete nervous system. Every muscle, organ and gland is affected. Some chiropractors focus on adjusting the spine only. Other holistic chiropractors focus on the whole body which includes feet, ankles, knees, hips, hands, wrists and shoulders. There’s also a specific chiropractic technique that addresses the cranium (skull). This chiropractic adjusting technique is called SOT (Sacro Occiptal Technique). This technique focuses very closely to cranial sacral work with massage therapists. The full definition of a subluxation is the combination of abnormal joint movement, abnormal body chemistry, irritated nerves and imbalanced muscles. Muscles that are imbalanced due to abnormal biochemical changes. Subluxations can also contain chemical imbalances or irritations.
