Most people think they know what chiropractic care is, but in actuality they’re missing the core concept of why it is vital to the human body and its day to day function.
Chiropractic care has been known for its back pain, neck pain, and headache relief properties. This is what the vast majority of people have heard and been taught about chiropractic care. That a spinal adjustment will relive those symptoms immediately, and make the body feel great again – whether for a few moments, a day, or a couple of weeks.
But what else that chiropractic care provide? Simple… chiropractic care enables the body to function at its best, and allow it to heal itself.
The Chiropractic Science
The most important system in the body is the nervous system. Nerve energy from the brain travels down the spine, and branches out through the spinal cord into the limbs and organs. Every organ and every cell in the human body depends on this nerve energy to function at its best and heal.
So what happens when the spinal cord is out of alignment – whether through poor postural habits, auto accidents, sports injuries, or gravity? The misalignment of the spine (or subluxation as chiropractors like to call it) exerts pressure on, twists, or pulls on these delicate nerves, weakening or disrupting vital nerve flow from reaching the limbs or organs.
You guessed it. Once nerve energy is diminished, the limbs and organs on the receiving end are no longer functioning the way they were intended. This could show up as pain, discomfort, tingling and numbness, or fatigue. What’s more concerning is that the vital organs in the body – such as the heart, lungs, intestines, and kidneys – often don’t relay any pain signals to the body, until they are in a state of disease.
Chiropractic adjustments can definitely help release that pressure on your nerves, and allow full nerve energy to flow freely to the rest of your body. But how long does this last, before postural habits and global misalignments shift the spine back to its destructive state again?
While some people respond very well to chiropractic care, and can hold an adjustment for a few weeks, other people who have pre-existing injuries or poor postural habits, will only see relief for a few hours.
Corrective Chiropractic Care
That’s why there is corrective chiropractic care, through a technique called Chiropractic BioPhysics or CBP. Chiropractic BioPhysics is the most researched, published, and results-oriented corrective care technique in the world. It has been created specifically to reshape the spine back to its “normal” shape, so that spinal misalignments can be addressed for a much longer period of time – months and years – for those who need it.
If you’re sitting at home, watching more than 20 minutes of Netflix, you most likely have spinal misalignments. If you work behind a desk for a living, you most likely have spinal misalignments. If you drive a truck, taxi, or commute more than 20 minutes to work, you most likely have spinal misalignments. If you have played sports as a kid, in high school, college, or professionally, most likely you have spinal misalignments. If you move boxes, equipment, or build things, you most likely have spinal misalignments.
As mentioned before, spinal misalignments show up with pain and discomfort, and sometimes they don’t. That’s why its vital for a chiropractor – one that specializes in Chiropractic BioPhysics – to take x-rays, assess the posture, and pinpoint the root cause of the misalignment.
Those patients on CBP care, go through not only adjustments, but traction and home exercises to reshape the spine painlessly and without any intrusive surgeries or procedures. Most often, patients who opt for corrective care, notice a dramatic improvement in the quality of their life. The start experiencing not only pain relief, for certain diseases and conditions start to clear up too, including asthma, acid reflux diseases, high blood pressure, allergies, and constipation.
It’s not surprising, because as pressure is released from those nerves that control our vital organs, it allows those organs to heal and function as they were intended. Something that no pill, no icepack, and no potion can accomplish.
