Vaughan, ON – Corrective Care Chiropractor in Vaughan Explains the Importance of Assessing Spine Structural Alignment and Posture to Address Function
When a new patient first comes into my office for a check up, I assessed them for structure and function.
- Spine: The normal alignment of the spine is straight from the front and it has 3 normal curves from the sided
- Posture: Normal posture from the front is when the mid forehead, nose, chest bone (sternum), and pubic bone is all centered. From the side, the ear, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles all line up.
The function of the spine is to protect the nervous system (spinal cord). The spinal cord connects the brain to the rest of your body via spinal nerves. So the function of spine to protect the spinal cord is super important. Why? Because your nervous system controls all body functions, all healing, and recreation and repair of all cells.
So our aim with chiropractic is to discover the structural problems in your spine, called Vertebral Subluxations, which interferes with the function of your body and the expression of optimal health.
When we correct the subluxations, which specific scientific chiropractic adjustments, we are removing the nerve interference causes by subluxations. This allows your body to health and function again normally, the way it is innately designed to. And this leads to better health expression.
Our goal at BTHCC is to lead you to better health the chiropractic way.
To your health,
Dr. Walter Salubro
