What do Daylight Savings Time and a Chiropractic Adjustment have in common? Both give you more LIGHT – get it! The primary purpose of Chiropractic is to locate and correct Subluxations. If you break the word down you get: SUB = less, LUX = light, and ATION = a condition.
Subluxation literally means a state of less ‘light’ or energy caused when misaligned spinal bones (especially the Atlas and Axis) restrict the flow of impulses through the nerve system. A Chiropractic Adjustment corrects this misalignment, eases pressure off nerves and extends the time Life energy streams through you – giving you more
daylight to heal yourself.
When you receive an adjustment from your Chiropractor, be confident your innate healing ‘light’ is shining brighter and longer with every session. Life springs forward when you’re under regular Chiropractic care.

Question: If you drop a heavy brick on your foot, what’s the first thing you need to do to start the healing?
Answer: Get the brick off your foot! Sounds simple, but it’s true. Your foot CAN’T heal until the offending pressure is removed first. The same principle applies to your Chiropractic care.
A misaligned vertebrae (Subluxation) acts like a brick on a nerve – creating compression, pain and inflammation. Healing starts only when the offending pressure can be removed and kept off the nerve with sequential adjustments. But don’t expect instant relief. Removing the pressure is simply the first step in a timely process.
If you don’t feel great immediately after an adjustment, don’t be discouraged. With a clear Nerve System and time, damaged tissues can heal and you’ll feel like new again. For now, be confident the healing process has at least started because the brick has been removed.
Bricks can how up like…low back pain, especially upon getting out of bed in the a.m., headaches, sinus congestion, tingling and numbness down your arm or legs, “catches or hitches in your get along”, fibromyalgia, dizziness or light headed, on and on…So if you have someone you care about that has any ‘bricks’ send them over to ….Glas Chiropractic!
When rough air approaches, pilots put on the seat belt warning light to assure your safety during a turbulent flight. When Life gets bumpy, Chiropractic care can keep you ‘strapped in’ and safe too.
During excessive physical, mental or chemical stress, our bodies react normally with a fight-or-flight sympathetic nerve system response, followed by a parasympathetic calming to relaxed levels - all perfectly orchestrated by your innate intelligence, via a clear nerve
system. But if your nerve system is interfered with by subluxations, your ability to adapt successfully to stress becomes weak and compromised – putting you at high risk for long term illness and disease.
From fender benders to mental exhaustion, we all encounter occasional turbulence in Life. It’s impossible to avoid it – but you don’t have to succumb to it. If your nerve system is kept clear with regular Chiropractic care, you’ll be buckled-in and able to handle those situations in a much more positive way.
If you ever thought about canceling your appointment because you were sick and didn’t want to spread your germs to everyone in the office, think again.
It’s actually the BEST time to come in.
The field of neuro-immunology has well established the connection between a healthy nerve system and normal immune function. Chiropractic adjustments boost your ability to fight off colds and flus by unlocking your spine, clearing nerve tension and unleashing your immune POTENTIAL.
And doesn’t it make sense to keep your immune system working its best so you can get better faster?
You wouldn’t cancel a dental appointment because your tooth hurt. Likewise, don’t cancel your Chiropractic appointment when your nerve system is fighting to get you well. Even if you’re under the weather, try not to miss adjustments…. and don’t worry about the other folks in the office getting sick – everyone here will be adjusted, protected and ready to serve you.
