A friend asked me this week, “What do adjustments actually do to the spine besides make a cracking noise”? He knows that every time adjustments are performed on him, he feels better, had more energy and flexibility and wanted to understand precisely why. However, to fully grasp the concept and philosophy of chiropractic, you must recognize how the body works and what may cause problems that minimize the body’s natural healing and function. We all understand that the body is a self-healing, self-regulating entity. For example, when you fall and get a bruise and cut, what naturally happens in days? It heals. That is the best definition of health I explain to my patients. Health is not how you feel but how you function and heal, which is coincidently the first four letters of the word Health! When the body…

Stress is the number one cause of most, if not all pains and diseases. The three types of stressors are: a) chemical-what we eat and breath b) mental stress-relationship, finances, work, etc c) physical stress – sports injuries, falls, traumas, car accidents This information is about the physical stress most people do not know about. It causes the most damage to the spine and leads to chronic issues such as arthritis and ongoing muscle and joint pain. It’s repetitive stress. In today’s workplace, about 86% of people sit at the computer. Even worse, surveys revealed that after work, an average person sits another 3-5 hours when driving, eating dinner, reading and watching shows/movies and sleep for 8 hours leading to a sedentary life of 21 hours. This repetitive lifestyle has been labeled sitting disease, which is the major cause of…

You may be amazed to learn that many of the cells and organs in your body are controlled by nerves in the spinal column – heal the spine and you may heal a rash of disorders. The practice of chiropractic is built upon a non-evasive, holistic approach to healing, one that addresses the mechanical adjustment and alignment of joints up and down the spine in a process known as vertebral subluxation. A specific vertebra can get out of alignment – you fell or twisted the wrong way – poor posture can lead to a misalignment or you could suffer from joint swelling caused by damage to a joint. Other factors also control the…

Neck Pain – Your neck helps you to turn your head when you want to respond to your children, or watch them play; observe a sunset, drive a car, and get a good night’s sleep. When it works it’s a pleasure you rarely think about – when it doesn’t it’s a pain that interferes with quality of life. The bottom line is to never take the neck for granted. The role your neck plays in your life is critical – be kind to it. The neck, obviously, supports the head; less obvious is that it contains arteries that bring blood to the brain from the heart – this is critical for optimum brain activity because the brain is the motherboard through which the entire body functions, so getting enough blood into this area is significant for performing simple to complex…
