Days of Summer Dwindling

Don’t shoot the messenger… Teachers are gearing up and students are squeezing every last second out of summer.  This is a huge transition in a child’s life. Think about all they have to adapt to… waking up at a different time, eating different food, sitting a lot more, having different schedules during the day, more sitting, often times poor posture, and the list goes on.

As we like to say in chiropractic, posture is our “window” into the spine. Unfortunately these days poor posture and spinal health is very prevalent, in large part thanks to the frequent appearance of cell phones, iPads, computers, and TV in our kids lives!

Poor posture affects far more however than just how we look, it absolutely can affect how a kid functions and feels. With kids we aren’t worried so much about back and neck pain (although it certainly can occur), but if they have poor posture… that also means they don’t have optimum function of the nervous system. This can lead to fatigue and low energy, poor mood and behavior, and trouble with focus and concentration.

Much of our practice is filled with families who have their kiddos under regular care not to treat a condition or problem, but to ensure optimal health and function of their nervous system, immune system, and more! These families often report the following “side effects” to regular adjustments for their kids:

  • Improved sleep
  • Improved immune function, less sick days
  • Improved behavior and concentration
  • Improved grades

 That last paragraph is added in here to say nothing about us, but everything about how passionate we are now about not just helping kids who have readily apparent struggles and diagnoses, but also about helping kids who may just be running at 80% optimum function instead of 100%.

EVERY KID deserves to be at their best, and as parents isn’t that what we really want for them too!?! Chiropractic is an absolute hidden advantage to healthy, happy, and high performance kiddos of all ages!

I is for Intuition and Intelligence


noun 1. direct perception of truth, fact

Truth resides within us in our body. The availability to be in touch with that truth is present every moment yet often times we feel disconnected from it. Vertebral subluxations have many effects in our physical, mental, emotional, and Spiritual being. One is a disconnect from the truth of life. The chiropractic adjustment allows connection to be restored and increase the availability to be in touch with life’s truth.


noun 1. capacity for learning, reasoning, understanding, and similar forms of mental activity; aptitude ingrasping truths, relationships, facts, meanings, etc.
Intelligence is the organizing properties of living things. Intelligence sends out life force through the nerve system to coordinate proper function through every cell, tissue, and organ throughout our body. When integrity is present within the nerve system and proper flow of life force there is proper function. The chiropractic adjustment allow for this to happen.

H is for Heart

Heart: the  center of the total personality, especially with reference to intuition, feeling, or  emotion

The chiropractic adjustment allows one the opportunity to be totally connect and this allows us to lead our life from living through our heart. When we as human beings live from our heart there is nothing but true. We are more connected to life around us and the essence of what runs life.

Subluxations in our spine and nerve system impede that connection hence we have to spend more time and energy on the flow of life inside and out of our bodies.  The chiropractic adjustment restores flow to our body and life. Get adjusted today

G is for Growth

growth noun 1. the act or process, or a manner of growing; development; gradual increase

Live is full of growth. In fact, either we grow or we start the dying process. Chiropractic is about growth in all facets. Physically, we as human beings grow through a process of cellular replacement. In this process, every cell, tissue, and organ regenerates itself creating an entire new body. The life force flowing through our nerve systems is controlling this process.

If our nerve system has interference in it from subluxations our bodies are force to work harder and require more time to regenerate. The chiropractic adjustment releases interference in our nerve system allowing cellular replacement to happen at its inborn rate and hence we grow from the inside out at our inborn rate.

Get adjusted today and start growing again in life.

F is for Function


func·tion noun 1. the kind of action or activity proper to a person, thing, orinstitution; the purpose for which something is designed orexists; role.

Chiropractic care is about functioning at your best from the inside out. When there is interference in your nerve system our body does not function at its best. Locating the areas in your spine where there are subluxations is vital to being the best in your body.

When our body has a decrease in function often times it sends out signals of distress. These may or may not include symptoms like irritability, mood swings, pain, indigestion, high/low blood pressure, and many more. It is also likely that your body has a decrease in function and is in an asymptomatic phase. That is why it is so vital to be checked by a chiropractor.

In Durango, it is our vision to check as many people as possible for vertebral subluxations and adjust them when needed. Live a life fully functioning…get checked and adjusted.

E is for Energy

en·er·gy the capacity for vigorous activity; available power

As human beings we are energetic beings. Energy is what flows through our nerve system to give power to every cell, tissue, and organ in our body. It is that invisible force in which connects all living creatures.

The chiropractic adjustment allows stored energy another opportunity to become kinetic and adaptive energy. Science calls stored energy potential energy, that which is resting. In life, potential energy is created by unadapted stress in our body. At Serving Life Chiropractic Studio it is our honor to educate on the potential of living a connected life full of kinetic and adaptive energy. Our body has the most power when it is this adaptive state because it has the most likelihood to adapt to stress rather than store stress. Chiropractic can help in this energetic intention.

D is for

di·verse adjective

1. of a different kind, form, character, etc.; unlike: a wide range of diverse opinions.
2. of various kinds or forms; multiform.
D is for Diverse. Chiropractic is diverse. It is a different “kind” of health, it is true health from the inside out where the human body guides the chiropractor on what to do and when to do it. At Serving Life Chiropractic Studio we pride ourselves on seeing a diverse population from babies still in the womb and their pregnant mothers to great great grandparents that are in 9th or 10th decade of life. No matter what the age, ethnicity, sexual preference, political preference, mental state, emotional state, IQ… we all have a nerve system and a spine and have the ability to increase the expression of our lives. Sometimes that increase is huge, sometimes it is minute, yet it is there. Get adjusted and allow life to express through your being better and better.

C is for Connection


1. the act or state of connecting.
2. the state of being connected: the connection between cause and effect.
3. anything that connectsconnecting part; link; bond: an electrical
4. association; relationship: the connection between crime and poverty;
5. a circle of friends or associates or a member of such a circle.
Chiropractic is connecting you to You. When we have interference in our Nerve System the life force flowing through our nerve system is impeding on the connection of brain and body and the connection with our true self. This is where everything in life starts and stops…our connection with our self. If we are disconnected, symptom, sickness, and dis-ease are a likely outcome to help us be more aware of this disconnection. The chiropractic adjustment in its entirety connects man the physical with man the Spiritual.
