As a family chiropractor, there is nothing more rewarding than to see the positive changes in the children and adults that we care for. Problems like asthma, ear infections, constipation, menstrual pain, ADHD, and many others.
But wait a minute! Isn’t Chiropractic for neck and back pain? How, on earth can a Chiropractor help such problems? Let me illustrate how Chiropractic can help, because so often it is the missing link in alleviating such problems.
Here is how the largest, natural, fastest growing, drug free system of health care, Chiropractic works:
- Our bodies are self-regulating and self-healing organisms. For instance, what is your liver doing right now? Do you have to think about it? NO – our liver works because we have a phenomenally wonderful Innate Intelligence that knows how to keep us healthy.
- The master controlling system of our innate intelligence is the nervous system. Everything in our life is under the influence of the nervous system, for example, how we run, digest our food, wiggle our toes, fight disease, solve problems, as well as interpret and respond to the environment around us.
- Any interference to the nervous system will result in our inability to heal and regulate bodily functions. The most common interference to the nervous system is due to subluxation (misalignment) of the vertebrae (spinal bones) that irritate the nerves and cause far-reaching chaos in our system.
- The intent of the Chiropractor is to locate spinal subluxation, gently adjust the spine to remove the nerve interference, and allow Innate Intelligence, the wisdom of the body, to heal from within.
Spinal Subluxations can be due to many factors, most commonly: birth trauma, physical trauma, mental/emotional stress, and even chemical stress.
In my clinic, and others, we utilize new technology that measures the nerve blockage from the top to the bottom of the spine. Also by measuring posture, muscle tension and imbalance, range of motion and temperature changes from side to side on the spine, we have excellent data to determine the presence and degree of subluxation. This technology has helped people understand that subluxations can have an incredibly huge negative affect even in the absence of pain, and it assists the Chiropractor in providing objective clinical data to track the patient’s progress.
When people are given the chance to have their nervous system feed their body without interference they live an amazingly healthy life with large reductions in their risk to pain, dysfunction and disease.
