What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is an approach to healthcare that focuses on the body's natural healing abilities. In modern times, it was Dr. Daniel D. Palmer (1895) who proposed that because of the integral interrelationship between the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, dysfunction in the former can cause dysfunction in the latter. This, in turn, can lead to disorders in other systems of the body. Within limits the body is a self-healing organism and Chiropractic tries to remove interferences to the body's own inborn healing abilities.Chiropractic is a modern health practice with historical roots. Ancient Egyptian and Chinese art works illustrate spinal manipulations. In the fifth century B.C., already Hippocrates developed theories of spinal mechanics and the role of manipulation in the overall health of the human body. However, as other forms of medicine developed further, manipulation stayed in the background until 1895, when Dr. Palmer adjusted the spine of a man who had lost his hearing after his neck 'popped' in an accident. The patient's hearing was successfully restored, and Dr. Palmer began teaching the clinical applications of his ideas. Since then Chiropractic has dramatically grown as a health care profession, with now more than 50,000 doctors practicing in the U.S. alone. For the past 100 years, people of all ages have benefited greatly from Chiropractic's drugless, non-surgical approach to better health. Often new patients initially visit a Chiropractor to relieve pain and soon realize that Chiropractic does more. By removing nerves interference from the spinal column, and sometimes from other joints as well, Chiropractors help patients achieve and maintain good health and improve physical performance. Chiropractic in fact has a fundamental focus on preventive care and well being. (information compiled from brochures of chiropractic educational institutions

What Does a Subluxation do to me?

Spinal Subluxation

A very common disorder of the lower back as well as the entire spine is subluxated or misaligned facet joints. Subluxations can exist on their own or in conjunction with disc problems and spondylosis.

They can cause pain as well as compromise to the spinal nerves as they exit the foramen or spaces between the vertebrae.

A Symptom often associated with nerve compression is paresthesia which is an alteration of sensation described as a tingling burning or funny feeling. Paresthesia in the upper extremities usually originates from nerve problems in the neck while paraesthesia in the lower extremities is most often associated with nerve problems in the lubar region (lower back).

Visceral problems such as asthma and gastric conditions can also be associated or complicated by spinal subluxations and nerve compression. Subluxations are best corrected with chiropractic adjustments.

Trauma such as fall, a car accident or sports injury can also cause injury in the spine and lower back. Often these traumas cause over stretching or tearing of any of the tissues of the spine. When this happens a person can feel considerable pain and immobility.

Proper chiropractic management at the onset of symptoms is very important in order to avoid long term disability and the development of any of the above conditions.
