By Southington Chiropractor – Rob Shaw, DC
Fortune tellers read the life line in the palms of a client’s hands. Cardiologists interpret the blipping life lines of a patient’s EKG. But Chiropractors dedicate their work to the most important life line of them all, the spinal cord and it’s protective covering… the spine.
Your spinal cord conducts the data of Life from your brain to your body and is protected by a bony fortress called the spine. The spine itself is an engineering marvel. Made up of articulating bones called vertebrae, each segment lines up perfectly with the next to protect the data within the spinal cord and to allow for normal sitting, standing, and movement in an infinite number of ways. It’s this intimate relationship between spinal alignment, spinal motion and Life that the Chiropractor is devoted to. Distort the alignment of the spine, and you distort the flow of Life… Cement the motion of individual segments and you cement the flow of Life!
For a Chiropractor, normal lateral curves, plumb posture and uninhibited motion of a healthy spine are more than just simple diagnostic findings. They are the validation that Life itself is flowing freely through the patient like a river. And as long as Life is flowing through the Line… Healing is sure to follow. Thanks for taking care of your Life Line! Until next time.
