Let’s Discuss Trauma
The 3 T’s of chiropractic are thoughts, trauma and toxins.
In this article we cover trauma.
DD Palmer, the discoverer of chiropractic in 1895 said that dis-ease or body malfunction is usually caused by three things: toxins, thoughts and trauma.
Trauma is any force that the body cannot resist or adapt to.
When people think of trauma they often think of something violent – a car accident, a fall, a sports injury, a difficult delivery, sleeping in a weird position, collisions or other sudden disruptions.
What is micor-trauma?
But there’s also micro-trauma – doing the same thing over and over so that it eventually wears down and damages the body: typing in the same position, laying carpet or even playing a sport using the same motion over and over.
The Result is Sublaxation
Whether it is a macro-trauma or a micro-trauma the result is often a subluxation – a distortion in your body structure creating dis-ease. As a result, your body struggles to re-balance and function ideally. Your nervous system is under-working or over-working. There is muscle, organ or tissue weakness, sub-optimal functioning and lack of health (wholeness). This dis-ease sets the stage for disease.
Chiropractic Care can Help
Chiropractors are specially trained to locate and correct subluxations in your body whether trauma has occurred today or at birth or any time in between. That is why everyone, from infants to the elderly, needs a chiropractic checkup and adjustment.
