The team at C&C Family Chiropractic Renmark & Berri are proud
and very excited to open Vivaci Family Chiropractic – Waikerie,
to serve Waikerie and surrounding district meeting their health
and wellbeing goals.
Vivaci: that’s a very interesting word. What does it mean and how
did you come up with it?
Vivaci means full of life, full of energy, lively, full of colour, vivid,
long lived and enduring in Latin, French and Italian.
Vivaci resonates with everything that is chiropractic and our team
prides itself on being the picture of health – and leading people
toward a Vivaci life, one filled with energy, vibrancy, colour and
So what is chiropractic all about then?
Chiropractic is the science of adjusting the spine to enhance
brain-body connection. It respects the natural healing ability of
the individual, but is not a treatment of any specific condition,
rather it is a way to optimize spinal and neural performance.
When most people hear chiropractic they think spine and this is
true, 100% correct – although we would make much more sense
if you thought of us as the nervous system guys.
We remove the interference from the nervous system so that
the body is able to self heal and self regulate. These points of
interference are known as ‘ vertebral subluxation complexes’, or
‘subluxation’ for short.
So what exactly is subluxation?
Subluxation: if we break it down into parts makes more sense.
So, ‘sub’ means less, take or under. ‘Lux’ means light or energy
and the suffix ‘-ation’ means a process, condition, result or state.
Therefore we derive that the chiropractic meaning of subluxation
is the state where less light or energy is getting from the brain to
the body or body back to the brain, at points where the spine is
misaligned. Therefore you cannot express your innate potential.
Okay, so let’s get this straight. Chiropractic is about
maintaining connection from the brain (which is the body’s
master control system) and the body (cells, tissues and
organs), so the body is able to self heal and regulate?
Precisely, our bodies were born with the innate ability to self heal
and self regulate. This is called our innate intelligence. For true
health we require a few things:
1. A full functioning nervous system – so the messages can
get from your brain to your body to tell it what to do and the
messages can get from your body back to your brain to let it
know what is going on within the body.
2. Exercise – our bodies were designed to be hunter-gatherers
so we are built to run, jump, climb and swim. We need exercise
to keep our bodies healthy.
3. Nutrition – our bodies require amazing food, although this
amazing food is often very simple food (fruit, salad, vegetables
and meat). We need to make sure we are not at any point in a
place where we have deficiency or toxicity in any nutrient.
4. Great emotional health – this looks like great relationships
with friends and family, and meaningful work and pastimes which
make us happy.
5. Sleep – We all know that good rest is vital for health, you only
have to look at kids when they don’t get enough (haha).
Now, I’ve heard you talk about ‘stressors’ on the body. What
Stressors are what cause our body to become subluxated.
They can be broken into three categories which funnily enough
mirror points 2, 3 & 4 from the previous question.
We can have:
Physical stressors – too much of the same action over a long
period of time (e.g . sitting at a desk looking at a computer screen
or sitting in a car, truck or tractor day in, day out). Or we all know
when we get too much physical stress in a short period of time
(e.g. picking up something that is too heavy or being in a car
Chemical stressors – Smoking, medications, drugs, sugar and
the myriad of different fillers, preservatives and sweeteners that
are artificial that are within our foods today. You really don’t know
how much we stress our bodies when we put these things into
our mouths, it tastes good at the time but our health pays for it.
Emotional stressors – poor relationships, worry about things
that are out of your control, poor work life balance, poor working
conditions just to name a few.
Right, well that’s amazing. I didn’t know and wasn’t
expecting any of that. Can I ask a couple more questions?
Yes of course, fire away.
So, this sounds amazing. What do I have to do to book an
