Chiro Q&A: Why stay subluxation-free?

Questions and Answers About ChiropracticChiro q and a

Why stay subluxation-free?

The chiropractic profession that was founded by Dr. DD Palmer in 1895 is based on the fact that internal structural distortions called subluxations can cause serious health problems.

Subluxations stress your nervous system and interfere with communication among your organs, glands, muscles and other body parts – including your brain and your immune system.

Subluxations can be caused by any trauma:

  • difficult birth
  • falls
  • accidents
  • emotional upset
  • chemical toxicity
  • overwork
  • a combination of the above factors

 How can chiropractic care improve health?

The answers depend on whom you ask.

For example, a woman now free of monthly pain may say, “Chiropractic is for menstrual problems.”

A pregnant woman may say, “Chiropractic is for a comfortable pregnancy.”

A mother whose child was helped may say, “Chiropractic is for ear infections (or fevers or asthma or colic).”

A teacher may say, “Chiropractic is for dyslexia, vision and learning disorders.”

Another person may say “Chiropractic is for headaches,” while still others may declare chiropractic is for back aches, hearing problems, disc problems, arthritis, high or low blood pressure or a host of other problems.

Chiropractic Care can Enhance Health

Others use chiropractic as a way to maximize sports performance, improve overall health, and enhance balance, strength and fitness.

In addition to all of the above, chiropractic can help everyone live a drug-free, healthy lifestyle.

Subluxations are epidemic in our society; most people have subluxations and don’t know it. For that reason, everyone needs periodic chiropractic checkups.

What Exactly Does a Chiropractor Do?

Maybe you’re wondering about going to a chiropractor or maybe you’re asking yourself, “What is the doctor doing when I’m in his office?”

We’re glad you asked.

Here’s a simple explanation and it’s the reason why chiropractic has become the most popular drug-free healing art in the world today.

What does a Chiropractor do?

Using his/her hands and various instruments, Doctors of Chiropractic locate and release a serious form of stress in your spine and body structure called a subluxation. Chiropractors are the only professionals trained to do this.

What is a subluxation?

A subluxation is a tiny distortion in your spine and structural system that irritates your nervous system and stresses your entire body. These distortions may be tiny but they can cause big problems. How?

Subluxations make you off balance. This causes your ligaments, tendons and muscles to work harder because an off-balance person is not in harmony with gravity. Sitting, standing and moving take more energy resulting in fatigue and ultimately a feeling of being exhausted all the time.

A person who is out of balance often has “hot spots” or painful areas in their muscles and joints due to overworking certain muscle groups and underworking other muscle groups.

Additionally, subluxations can affect your internal organs and glands – even your brain.
