Chiropractic Q and A

Question:

What is a subluxation and why are they so dangerous?

Answer:

A subluxation is a distortion in your spinal column and body structure that affects your brain, spinal cord, and nervous system. Chiropractors spend years learning how to locate and adjust subluxations using various physical testing devices, body biofeedback, and other instruments as well as X-rays and imaging devices. Why are subluxations so bad?

Disconnection

The subluxation is a “communication disorder” wherein your parts have become disconnected; your parts, muscles, discs, ligaments, and organs aren’t working together as efficiently as they could be working; there may be too much or too little cerebral spinal fluid, lymphatic fluid and/or blood flow to vital body organs. When you are disconnected your resistance to disease lowers, your ability to detoxify from life’s stresses drops and you are less alive. The term used to describe this is dis-ease.

The Goal of the Chiropractor

The goal of the chiropractor is to locate and remove subluxations so you may be better connected to yourself.

Adjusting to a New Year


Every year, we all find ourselves caught in the fray of adjusting to a new year. Whether it’s getting used to writing a new year at the end of the date or taking action on a new year’s resolution, starting a new year can feel like a fresh start. Although most changes made are dependent on one’s ability to commit, other changes will require the assistance of a professional. Since you’re starting a new year, why not make sure that your spine and joints are free of subluxations? Starting a new year with a chiropractic adjustment can help you realign your body by putting your health first.

Why Chiropractic Care?

Chiropractors go through several years of studying the body before they begin adjusting patients. After they graduate and begin their practice, they are responsible for continuing their education every one or two years, depending on the state in which they practice. Many doctors who practice alternative medicine are tasked with the same requirements to continue in their profession. For chiropractors, a new year means more education. Continued education allows chiropractors to engage in refresher courses on best practices in business and the various bodily systems just to ensure that they are up-to-date with the most recent techniques and equipment.
