Zone 5


Muscular / Joint/ Bone System

This zone is responsible for keeping you upright and moving; its organs include 637+muscles, tendons, joints, ligaments and bones. When working properly this zone replaces the muscle and skeletal cells for you, so you have a new musculoskeletal system every 7 years. 

Most people neglect to exercise or move their body, creating an unhealthy muscular zone. A disturbance in the muscular zone can create chronic pain and stiffness in joints, asymmetry in the musculature, atrophy/weakness in muscles and/or spasmed/overworked muscles. accidents, falls, or physical traumas also cause an improper nerve supply to your muscles and joints. 

On an emotional level, when you get angry many muscles in the body contract and since your muscles structure effects of all other systems this causes poor elimination, digestion, circulation, and glandular function.

Physical, mental, or chemical stress can cause a disturbance in the brain center as well as a spinal misalignment or subluxation in the muscular nerve channels. This disturbance interferes with the proper brain/nerve signals traveling to your musculoskeletal system creating a multitude of diseases and problems.

Balancing Zone 5…

This zone is the most common zone for chiropractors because it encompasses the muscle and skeletal system. To balance this zone,  Dr. Nilles will perform a zone 5 specific adjustment as well as inform you, the patient, what you should expect from that treatment. Dr. Nilles will hand you a Zone 5 Sheet which describes exactly what you should be looking for as a result of this very specific adjustment.  Its best to read this sheet just prior to bedtime. When most or all the symptoms turn to “yes” please return it to the office. 

Balancing this zone usually takes 10-12 visits over a 4 week period of time. Its like working out; if you exercised once, you wouldn’t expect to drop 10 lbs on the scale or run a 5K race immediately. Balancing this zone takes some time and it takes adjustments.

Once Zone 5 is balanced you can expect…
