Make Chiropractic Care A Family Affair!

By Dr. Craig Pruitt, DC

Remember the old game of "Pass It On"? If you don't remember, here's how it works: a group of children would sit in a circle, the first person would think of a short phrase or sentence and whisper it in the ear of the person next to them. The next person would whisper what they heard into the ear of the person next to them and they would follow around the entire circle in this manner. By the time the message has gotten all the way around the circle the message is usually very different from the original. For instance, the phrase , "Two cats jumped across the stream" may end up being, "Too fat to jump and scream."

Can you imagine if we used this type of communication in everyday life? Imagine how difficult it would be to get anything done correctly, never mind efficiently. Imagine if during an important brain surgery, the surgeon didn't ask the nurse for the right tool, but rather whispered in the ear of the person next to him who whispered to the person next to her and so forth around the entire table in the hopes of getting the right tool. How would you like to be the patient on that table? (NO THANKS)

This type of communication is preposterous. We would never stand for it in everyday life, nor should we. This example points out the need for and the importance of clear communication, even in simple matters.

Running the human body is far from a simple matter. Do you realize that you have 70 trillion cells that make up your body? Each has its own demands and needs. We have thousands of chemical reactions that take place every second of our lives within our bodies. We have millions of cells that die every day and need to be replaced. We have 30-40 billion white blood cells seeking out bacteria and viruses every minute of every day. We have so much complicated stuff going on inside of our bodies that we don't even know what we don't know. (That's not a typing error, its true!)

Your nervous system allows all of this communication to happen accurately and in a coordinated fashion creating the symphony we call "health". Your spine protects those intricate telephone lines, also known as, the nerve system, allowing the opportunity for clear communication. It is vital to take care of your spine throughout your entire life to have clear communication in the body. Do you want your body to function like a game of "Pass It On", and hope that you get the right information when your heart needs more oxygen, or do you want to function free of interference with pin point accuracy and clarity? I think the answer is pretty simple.

Chiropractic is about clear communication within the body, allowing the body to function at its best…..PASS IT ON!
