“The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, diet , and in the cause and prevention of disease.” Thomas Edison
When a Chiropractic physician positions his hands to give an adjustment, a change is about to take place that could improve your health for a lifetime. Because nerves and blood flow from between your vertebra and not only go to the internal organs but to other parts of your body, misalignments potentially can have a devastating effect on your health.
The nervous system controls and coordinates every organ, part and system of the body and relates the individual to his or her environment. (Grays Anatomy)
Let me explain: little Tommy, due to his serious asthma reactions, could not go outside and play with his friends, that is until after his Chiropractic adjustments started. Then he could play with the best of them. Chiropractic adjustments freed Jeff of his chronic daily headaches and his wife Jessica no longer has sinus headaches. Beth was afraid to hold her newborn after the car accident because of her seizures, her medical doctor told her even though the drugs were starting to lose their effect he could not increase the dose because it could be fatal. After her first adjustments she never had another seizure.
Frank has suffered 20 years with his neck, shoulders and arms. It was that car accident he had when he was 20. He took the pain medication and the muscle relaxers but he never was free from the pain. That is until he got his Chiropractic adjustments. Sandy had carpal tunnel syndrome and was told surgery was her only option. Chiropractic adjustments proved that wrong. Jim was sure he was having a heart attack but after five hours at the hospital they sent him home with pain pills. Three or four times a week he would be gripped with chest pain and it became hard to breathe. Chiropractic adjustments changed that. Jim’s mother suffered from digestive problems for the past 15 years. Chiropractic adjustments restored the normal nerve and blood flow to her digestive system and she can eat whatever she wants now. Jeannette suffered from chronic colitis that kept her running to the bathroom three or four times after each meal. She stopped doing activities that she used to have fun doing because of the flare-ups. It’s been six months since she received her first Chiropractic adjustments. It’s been five months since she had her last attack of colitis.
Bill was told surgery was his only option for his back injury and his surgeon told him there was no way he could return back to the type of work he has been doing the past 30 years. He received his first Chiropractic adjustments on Monday and by Friday he was back working full-time amazed how much better he was doing. Jennifer has had bad menstrual periods ever since she was 18 and the ibuprofen that she was taking started causing serious kidney problems. After she started receiving Chiropractic adjustments her next period was already 50 percent better and by her third period she was pain free for first-time. Linda and Bill had been trying to have a family for four years. Two months after they started Chiropractic adjustments Linda was pregnant.
Some patients say they need to get popped, others cracked. I prefer the word adjustment, after over 40 years of experiences like the ones above that word seems to better describe the act of releasing health back into the body. Now don’t get me wrong, you can call it what you want. It’s not what you call it; it’s just making sure you get it on a regular basis.
Health is when each organ is functioning properly, and is functioning in relation to the needs and wants of the rest of the body. (Dorland’s Medical Dictionary)
Nerves from the spinal cord (Pre-ganglionic fibers) communicate (synapse) with the nerves controlling organs (up to 20 post-ganglionic fibers – autonomic chain).
Vertebra become subluxated (misaligned) and compress the nerves (pinched nerves).
10 millimeters of pressure decrease the nerve function 40%. 20 millimeters of pressure decrease function by 60%. (Spinal Research University Colorado)
This nerve pressure causes the underlying weakness that allows disease to develop. Healthy bodies don’t get sick.
Studies show chiropractic is twice as effective as medical care, at half the cost. (Trial records Wilks vs. AMA)
