Chiropractors seek the origin of illness in order to eliminate it {advice from a #BeverlyHillsChiropractor}

Chiropractor, Walker Ozar and his Beverly Hills Posture team serves the Beverly Hills, California area and the surrounding communities.  A Beverly Hills Posture health and fitness plan starts at the root causes of poor health—from poor posture, fitness and weight issues, ergonomics at home and in the office, to musculoskeletal issues and more—then tailored to include the fitness and therapy programs that are necessary to achieve desired short and long-term results.

As most people know, chiropractors practice natural, drugless, non-invasive health care and rely on the body’s ability to self-heal.  Sounds ideal, but just how does it work?

Chiropractors look at the whole picture

Like other health-care providers, we follow a standard routine to gain information about the patient.  Chiropractors consult, review the case history, conduct a physical examination, and may request laboratory analyses and/or x-rays. Unlike other health-care providers, however, chiropractors also conduct a careful analysis of a patient’s structure and pay particular attention to the spine.  Chiropractors also ask you about your life:   Do you eat well? Exercise at all? How do you deal with stress? Do you have children? What do you do for work? And so on.

Chiropractors seek the origin of the problem

Using this information, a diagnosis is made. Included in the diagnosis is the probable reason for your pain or discomfort. It is important to note that chiropractors seek the origin of the illness in order to eliminate it-we do not simply treat the symptoms.  If your roof is leaking, do you simply catch the drips in a bucket for years on end, or do you repair the roof to prevent it from leaking? Similarly, if the migraine headache you’ve had all week is being caused by misaligned vertebra and an irritated nerve, do you continue to take pain killers indefinitely, or do you realign the vertebra to prevent the pain? You get the picture.

Chiropractors  fix the origin of the problem

Chiropractors have a term for misalignments: subluxations. A vertebral subluxation is a misalignment of the bones that protect the spinal cord. It’s a leak in the roof. Or a kink in the wiring of your nervous system.  The severity of the subluxation can vary, and there are a number of potential contributing factors that can be physical, emotional, mental, or chemical. The subluxation can be caused by any number of incidents, from birth trauma to an auto accident to simple repetition or over-use.

Yoga off Your Mat

Wouldn’t it be nice to know that you do not have to drive all over the city just to find yoga? Well now you know you do not have to. To make sure your body and mind remain in balance and harmony in-between classes, try taking your yoga practice with you throughout your day.

The definition of yoga is to yolk or unite. When we are practicing yoga we are trying to unite on a deeper and more conscious level with our true self. It is more important to have a yogic perspective throughout your day than it is to only practice good posture and smooth breathing once or twice a week in your favorite yoga class. Yoga is a way of living, not just a class here and there. I always compare yoga to brushing our teeth because we don’t just brush our teeth on the days we have time, it is a daily practice and habit. Yoga can be a daily practice as well.

What we learn in classes or private sessions are the tools for how to live a better life off of our mats. From there we are supposed to take those tools and incorporate them into our daily routine. This can be anything from evenly distributing the weight in our feet while standing in line at the grocery store to slowing down enough to listen to the messages our body is sending us.

These tools are so pertinent to long-term health and wellness but if we do not start living these tools on a daily basis they are useless. That feeling that we all like at the end of a great yoga class is something we can have all day, every day, as long as we are mindful of how we carry ourselves and of our breath. There are countless ways to practice yoga all day long.

Here are a few examples to start with and then get creative and add some of your own.

– Practice tree pose while cooking
– Use core strength to sit up straight at your desk
– Deep breathing while stuck in traffic
– Figure Four pose seated on the plane
– Mountain Pose while in the checkout line
– Hip openers on the floor while checking your email
– Downward dog on the wall anytime you need it

Now start finding your own yoga practice throughout your day and add to this list!
