You know I am always going to start with a question. So here it is…. Have you ever driven a car that was out of alignment? What does that feel like? Don’t you have to constantly adjust the steering wheel to keep you on track and not veer off the road? And of course the steering wheel was resisting the entire time because it was misaligned. Alignment in your vehicle assures your tires meet the road at the proper angle, your wheels are pointing straight and your tires are centered in the wheel wells. It adjusts the angles of your wheels for best gas mileage, proper road contact, a smooth ride, and the longest tire life. What causes bad alignment in your vehicle? There are environmental conditions, driver error (hitting the potholes) and wear and tear of suspension. All of these can shorten the life of your tires and ultimately your vehicle. When the vehicle is in alignment it’s smooth driving. Well the same things happen to our body, minds and spirit. In order for you to perform at your peak, your mind, body and spirit need to be in alignment. When you are out of alignment the road in life becomes bumpy. Signs of being out of alignment show up in the following ways: headaches, joint or muscle pain, sitting too much, back pain, and limited range of motion. What would you do? Most people head over to the chiropractor to re-align the body for peak performance just like you would take your car in for an alignment. That’s terrific. Having your physical body in alignment is one part. But, we have to go deeper than just the physical.
