Have you ever had 2 or more, seemingly unrelated symptoms at the same time?
Most likely and let me guess, do you find yourself trying to link them together?
Hi, I’m Dr. Andrew Arnold, Chiropractor and in my experience, most of us are inclined to do just that.
We naturally try and connect the dots however, when you’re in the ‘fish bowl’ it’s very difficult to be objective of yourself. You can’t see the forest for the trees.
The truth, from a holistic perspective everything in our bodies, is connected, however, not always directly.
For example, a strained psoas muscle can directly influence the uterus and visa versa leading to pain. Flat feet can indirectly create low back pain from uneven weight bearing.
It also follows a Chiropractic adjustment to one area of the body can influence another area quite distant.
It also follows a posture aid or support such as a custom, Chiropractic Foot Leveler orthotic insert or Posture Medic back support can improve spinal pain far from where the support is.
So yes everything is linked. The question is directly or indirectly and what has to happen to create a positive change.
