Chiropractic care is often overlooked and underappreciated, possibly due to the intricate nature of the changes that occur when a joint is subluxated and when it is corrected. Throughout the years, medical doctors and the AMA have been accused of initiating a conflict against chiropractic, and a federal court of law has even found the AMA guilty of such actions. Nevertheless, we believe that the true reason behind the undervaluation of chiropractic lies in the sophisticated and complex aspects of the spine, joints, and nervous system. These intricacies lead to misunderstandings or lack of understanding among both the general population and medically trained doctors who have not received education in the underlying science of chiropractic. Researchers and chiropractors have a deep understanding of the harmful effects of a subluxation, and our goal is to present this scientific knowledge in a comprehensible manner, enabling readers to gain insight into the multifaceted nature of chiropractic. It is essential to recognize that chiropractic extends beyond mere relief from a "pinched" nerve or discomfort in the neck and back; it offers a path to true health and achieving homeostasis. By sharing this knowledge, we aim to empower you with truth and help you appreciate the value of chiropractic, allowing you to address degenerative processes that often go unnoticed and unaddressed due to lack of understanding.
A Chiropractic adjustment is a method of correcting a subluxation, which refers to a joint, including the spinal bones, being misaligned and unable to move correctly. When your spine or joint experiences limited mobility, it undergoes a process called biomechanical immobilization, which initiates a degenerative process right away. Initially, you may not feel or notice any symptoms as your body does not send pain signals immediately.
However, if you wait until you experience noticeable problems, it is certain that the issue has been present for some time. This emphasizes the importance of regular chiropractic care. Initially, more frequent adjustments may be necessary because your body has learned to compensate and reinforce the existing subluxation using muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Just as the body adapted to support the improper joint position, it is capable of relearning and supporting the joint in its correct position. Learning takes time and repetition.
Proper alignment of your joints, including the spinal bones, plays a crucial role in ensuring balanced bodily systems, going beyond mere pain relief. You will experience improvements in your mood, reduced anxiety, better sleep, enhanced digestion, improved thyroid function, stronger immunity, fewer heart palpitations, enhanced memory, improved blood sugar balance, and more. Achieving a state of homeostasis allows your body to function optimally.
While Western medicine has its merits, it has done a disservice by convincing people that their bodies cannot heal themselves without external intervention. For instance, it perpetuates the idea that type 2 diabetes requires insulin, focus issues necessitate Adderall due to deficiency, or knee pain requires a titanium knee. The truth is that our daily actions either steer us towards health or away from it. If we fail to practice preventive medicine, we end up practicing interventional medicine. We do recognize that certain conditions require external intervention, but even in those cases, chiropractic care can complement their healthcare regimen and lead to improvement.
The human body is intricately designed. When a healthy individual is born, their entire body functions as a unified system. Each part of the body is not isolated but interconnected. We are familiar with the saying "The foot bone's connected to the leg bone..." which presents a simplified perspective. In reality, the complexity of the body lies in the interconnections of every bone, ligament, organ, nerve, hormone, and cell. Damage in one area of the body can impact other nearby or distant areas. That is why you may be recommended treatments or tests that may initially seem unrelated to the issue you came to our office for.
Chiropractic care is often included in comprehensive treatment plans due to its ability to restore proper biomechanical function. Research shows that improper biomechanical function or joint immobilization leads to various consequences:
A chiropractic adjustment supports the adaptation of your nervous system to stress, enabling you to enter a relaxed state in which healing, sleep, digestion, and other essential functions occur. The body experiences psychological manifestations when encountering chemical, emotional, and physical stressors on a daily basis, which put the nervous system in a state of "fight or flight." In this mode, the ability to heal, digest, relax, and adapt is compromised. Eventually, the brain learns to remain in a constant state of fight or flight, anticipating incoming stress. This loss of adaptability can lead to anxiety, depression, focus issues, and more.
