Millions of people have found relief from back, neck and headache pain through chiropractic. But moreover, they have also experienced improved overall health with chiropractic’s natural, drug free approach to health. The secret to chiropractic’s success is evaluating the whole person to uncover the true source of the dysfunction or dis-ease.
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic: from Greek chiro- ?e???- “hand-” + praktikós p?a?t???? “concerned with action” , is concerned with the relationship between the structure (primarily the spine) and the function (primarily the nervous system) of the body and how that relationship affects your health.
In 1895, Daniel David (D.D.) Palmer, the founder of Chiropractic delivered the first Chiropractic Adjustment to Harvey Lillard. His theories and subsequent discovers are the foundation of Modern Chiropractic healthcare.
Spinal Misalignments and Poor Health
The 24 vertebrae that make up the spinal column function as a “boney armor” around the spinal cord. Between each vertebra, there is a hole or foramina where a nerve splits from the cord and exits the spinal column. It is these nerves that start the vast network of the nervous system. The nerves are so vital to our existence that there isn’t one system, organ, or cell in the body that is not directly or indirectly affected by them.
For this reason, improper function of the spine due to slight misalignments called Subluxations can cause poor health or dysfunction.
Misalignments of the vertebrae can place excessive stress on the disc causing small tears, which can lead to bulges or herniation. They can irritate the spinal nerves leading to pain at the site or any where the nerve travels. Most common is the fact that misalignments of the spine create abnormal movement patterns, which invariably lead to muscle strains and arthritic joints throughout the body.
Not only does the chiropractic adjustment restore normal motion to the spine, but also allows the body to return back to a point of homeostasis or balance. It is this balance that allows the body to adapt to the ever changing environment that we live in.
Why Choose Chiropractic?
Chiropractic has been saying no to drugs long before first lady Nancy Reagan coined the phrase.
Chiropractic, the largest non-medical healthcare profession in the world, is chosen by those who want an alternative to drugs and surgery or as compliment to their current health care regime. It is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct these misalignments and restore proper function to the nervous system, helping the body to heal naturally on its own.
Chiropractic spinal adjustment can be defined as a precise low force/high velocity manual thrust that corrects the misalignment, improves the joint motion, permits normal nerve transmission, and assists your body to recuperate on its own.
Whether you opt for chiropractic for an acute problem or a chronic condition, you will come to realize that chiropractic improves many aspects of your life that you never associated with your spine. It can help with things such as improved sleep, increased energy, greater mental focus, and improved coordination and stamina.
Those who depend on their bodies for their living choose chiropractic. Thousands of professional and amateur athletes depend on the healing hands of chiropractors to maintain proper spinal health and maximum athletic performance. Some of the more recognizable names include Tiger Woods, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Lance Armstrong, just to name a few!
