The Power of Chiropractic
The power of chiropractic continues to amaze me (everyday). Meet Sorcha - he has been struggling with "car sickness". He loves exploring, but once the car starts rolling the drool starts pouring. When he showed up for his first appointment his mom was outside drying him off with a towel. The copious amounts of drool soaked his chest. He was very wet, but still very cute. After trying remedies from the pet store, vet clinic and reading books in the parked car Sorcha's owner reached out for chiropractic. I told Sorcha's mom we could certainly give chiropractic a try and see how he responds. There are never any guarantees with Chiropractic, but that's what makes it fun and exciting. There are no adjustments for car sickness. There are only adjustments that reduce stress on the body's structure and enhance the body's function. Sorcha's adjustments were based on the stress I felt in his joints. He is a young and otherwise healthy pup, so I was excited to see how he would respond to chiropractic. The following day an e-mail from Sorcha's mom read: "The drooling was a drip instead of a waterfall. Shortly out of Pardeville he laid down. This is a new behavior in the car, he usually sits. Today he sat up at stop signs and then laid back down. I think we had a successful visit. Thank you." Reading this e-mail, I reminded myself the power of chiropractic. Chiropracitc is not about car sickness or feeling better. Instead the power of chiropractic is found in the body healing better when structure and function align.
