Level 1: Intensive Spinal Correction
Your chronic (long-standing) or acute (recent) subluxations have damaged your vertebrae, joints, nerves, discs, muscles, meninges, tendons and ligaments. Your spine is weak and unstable and your adjustments hold briefly and incompletely. You may have advanced spinal degeneration. Height loss, stiffness, tightness, tension and constant physical or emotional pain is common at this level, as is dullness and premature aging. Your posture is off-center, your spine is unbalanced. Your energy is low, your breathing may be shallow and your ability to adapt to life's stresses is compromised. You have sensitivity to your physical, chemical and emotional needs.
Level 2: Reconstructive/Corrective or Spinal Healing
Your spine is beginning to respond to chiropractic care. You are experiencing less intense subluxation damage. Height loss slows or stops, flexibility improves, as do physical, chemical and emotional overall well-being. Your spine does not yet hold adjustments for long periods; consistent subluxation correction is needed for healing and stability of your vertebrae, joints, nerves, discs, muscles, meninges, tendons and ligaments. Spinal degeneration has slowed down. Energy begins to flow better, your breath may be more noticeable, and sensitivity to your physical needs may increase.
Level 3: Health Enhancement
Your spinal column is releasing its chronic vertebral subluxation damage. Your chiropractic spinal adjustments are holding for longer periods, permitting increased healing of your spinal vertebrae, joints, nerves, discs, muscles, meninges, tendons and ligaments. Spinal degeneration is potentially reversing. Your energy improves, breathing is deeper and you experience greater relaxation and better sleep. As physical and psychological health and sensitivity increases, retracing, a brief expression (healing) of old physical and emotional stress stored in your body, may occur. You notice that you are adapting better to life's stresses.
Level 4: Health Optimization
Free from subluxation damage, your spinal column and nervous system are balanced and stable. You are better able to adapt to your physical, emotional and chemical stresses. Your breathing, relaxation and sleep is deep and satisfying. You are more sensitive to your movement, diet and relationships to others in the world. You have more energy,and your body functions at a higher level of resistance to disease. You are increasingly connected and sensitive; life is full of wonder, excitement and inspiration.
