CrossFit Pineville members–

I’m reaching into my 6 month at CFP, and by now I’ve had the pleasure of meeting almost every member! Most of you know me as coach Amanda, some of you know me as Dr. Amanda, and the rest of you may know me as the girl with a lot of tattoos. For those who don’t know, I am a Doctor of Chiropractic. I’m extremely proud to say I graduated at the top of my class from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Port Orange, FL last year, which is also the nation’s top Chiropractic school. Being an athlete all of my life I constantly had aches/pains/injuries that were always prescribed over-the-counter pain relievers and never really properly fixed. My freshman year of college I injured my hip playing softball. I did various stints of rehab, took the ibuprofen I was handed and never felt any better. Finally, after 8 long months of issues I found a chiropractor, and that was where the fun began. One adjustment took away 8 months of hip pain! I couldn’t believe it was possible, so I took matters into my own hands and began my research. Long story short, here I am today helping and healing people one adjustment at a time!

What I’m going to share with you is what Chiropractic is and WHY it works!

Chiropractic is the restoration of proper bodily function by removing interference found within the central nervous system (CNS). What we fix is termed a subluxation: bone out of alignment causing an inflammatory process to occur surrounding the spinal nerve. We term this as “pressure” being placed on the nerve altering its function! (i.e. Interference) This in turn can cause a wide variety of symptoms, not just pain.

Each spinal nerve has 3 jobs: control surrounding musculature, control organs/glands/blood vessels and transmit pain signals. The nervous system controls every cell, organ and tissue in your body. The brain is connected to the body via the spinal cord and spinal nerves. If a bone is misaligned the nerve can’t fully send signals and communicate like it’s supposed to with the brain.

What causes a subluxation: STRESS! And it mainly comes in the form of physical (ahem, activity, CrossFit, etc), mental/emotional or chemical. No one gets through life without stress-induced subluxations at one point or another.

By taking the pressure off the nerve we allow your body to function optimally. The power that made the body heals the body! We put nothing in and take nothing out!

So what’s in store for CFP members?  Healing Touch Chiropractic and CrossFit Pineville have joined forces to make sure ALL CFP members and their families receive an initial consultation, including any necessary x-rays, at NO COST! (Up to a $305 value) There has never been a better time to take your family’s health into your own hands, naturally!

What’s in the near future for CFP members?  Weekly/monthly family wellness programs will be available to members soon!

As always, feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or concerns you may have!

Yours in health, wellness and all things CrossFit,
