Chiropractor Orlando FL Scherina Alli Why Trauma Should Never Be Overlooked

"Trauma compromises our ability to engage with others by replacing patterns of connection with patterns of protection."
-Stephen Porges

Trauma, whether physical, emotional, or both, alters the body's ability to heal and thrive. We know it will decrease the function of systems like digestion and immune, but it also changes how we interact with the world around us… how we interact with our families, spouses, kids, friends, and co-workers… Contact our Orlando FL chiropractic clinic today to learn more.

We are unable to FULLY connect, if we are in a state of protection.

What Is A "State Of Protection" In Orlando FL?

Everyday stressors (physical, mental, and chemical) can lead the body to be in a sympathetic, fight-or-flight, (protective) dominant state. Here are some examples of each:

  • Thoughts: Negative self-talk, emotional trauma, anxiety from a stressful job/relationship, etc
  • Traumas: Birth trauma, a slip and fall, physical changes that occur during pregnancy, etc
  • Toxins: Moving into a home with mold, cleaning with toxic chemicals, consuming foods high in pesticides, etc

What Happens To The Body In A Fight-Or-Flight State?

This high-stress state can lead to so many negative health effects, such as a decreased mental state. In order to have an optimal connection with the world around us and proper responses like restorative sleep, optimal digestion, and increased immune system function, the body has to be in a parasympathetic (rest and digest) dominant state.

Chiropractic care and network spinal works directly with the nervous system. It assists the body in moving from a sympathetic (fight-or-flight) state to a parasympathetic state (rest and digest).

Parasympathetic State = Connection

At IWC, we focus our care around the nervous system in a safe and effective way. We're here to help! DM or call us to schedule an appointment or ask any questions that you may have!!!
