The Golden Gate Bridge is not only vast and beautiful but also highly functional. This iconic landmark is a suspension bridge which means it balances tension and compression in order to maintain the stability needed for cars to pass over the 1.7 mile span while also maintaining the adaptability needed to weather a natural disaster like an earthquake without crumbling.
Much like the bridge, your body also balances tension and compression to maintain stability for everyday life and adaptability to weather life’s potentially traumatic events.
When tension in the bridge is balanced it can serve its purpose without distraction. When tension in the body is balanced throughout the muscles, ligaments, and tendons (aka “cables”), we experience ease and can focus on our lives. When there is an imbalance of tension in your body, you may experience sounds like popping or creaking, feelings of weakness or incoordination and sometimes pain. All of these sensations distract you from life because the body has a need for ease and produces feelings that are uncomfortable to motivate the conscious mind to find a solution.
Just like engineers test the integrity of the bridge by checking the joints and adjusting cable tension, chiropractors at GGCC test the integrity of your body by checking your joints and adjusting the tension (tone) of your nervous system.
Chiropractic is all about quality of life.
The quality of your life is proportionate to the quality of your movement. The quality of your movement is proportionate to the balance of tension and compression that maintains both stability and adaptability.
The chiropractic adjustment is the only tool in the health field that can alter muscle tone (tension) and the brain’s perception of body position using just the practitioner’s hands all in less than 200 milliseconds.
