When you think “Chiropractor” you probably think of neck or low back pain. It’s true, that’s what I used to think before I became one! And there’s nothing wrong with that because we’re probably the best ones that can help with those things. But did you know that chiropractic can help with more than just neck pain and back pain? Did you know that the first “chiropractic” patient wasn’t seen for back pain? The story goes that the founder of chiropractic, DD Palmer, helped a deaf guy to hear again by adjusting his spine. I don’t know the validity of the outcome, but I can tell you that adjusting the spine can do wonders beyond back pain.
There was a study done that showed the correlation between spinal misalignments and organ dysfunction. It was fascinating to see that in each cadaver they studied and found a diseased organ they then found that the corresponding spinal segment to be rigid and full of fibrous tissue.
Let’s look at your nervous system…if the brain can’t communicate with the body, then nothing works properly. When spinal segments are rigid then the full nerve impulse can’t get to the end organ. If the end organ isn’t getting the message it won’t function properly. Have you noticed that when people get injured (i.e. car accident or sports injury) they will often have accompanying bodily symptoms like fever, nausea, fatigue?
In our practice the foundation of each patient’s treatment program revolves around keeping the spine in proper alignment and motion. This means that your nervous system will function better.
Having spinal segments misaligned are stuck together is one of the primary roadblocks to your health. Schedule an appointment to make sure your spine is in alignment!
