CHIROPRACTIC CARE BEYOND BACK PAIN
Many people believe chiropractic exclusively focuses on back pain; however, since its inception in the late 19th century, chiropractic has effectively managed the nervous system, ensuring that the body operates at peak performance. In 1895, D.D. Palmer, the nation’s first chiropractor, restored a patient’s hearing with a chiropractic adjustment. Palmer understood that the nervous system and the spine are interconnected, and he understood that any interference in the nervous system can negatively affect the entire body. All information, both incoming and outgoing, is relayed by the nervous system which resides within our spinal column. When you damage your delicate nervous system, the body’s ability to communicate with itself is damaged as well.
The body has more than two hundred bones, and wherever two bones come together at a joint, there is movement. The joints in the spinal column are so close to your spinal cord and nerve root that too much or too little joint movement can make a major difference, interfering with the “life force” transmitted over your nervous system that keeps your brain in touch with your body. The result of this is a vertebral subluxation, which can compromise the way your nervous system controls and regulates your body.
Subluxation is a serious issue for children as well as for adults. From birth, young bodies are subjected to stresses that can interfere or distort controlling nerve impulses between the brain and the body. Pulling, twisting, or forcing the baby from the birth canal are far too common, and Cesarean sections and other intrusive measures can do unseen damage to a fragile newborn’s nervous system. With the child’s neurological signals compromised, health is impaired from the first breath.
Your "life force” transmitted over your nervous system that keeps your brain in touch with your body.
Only a chiropractor can tell if the baby is subluxated, and remove the interferences that are inhibiting the baby’s growth and development. As children grow, spinal subluxations can hamper the ability to ward off infection, leading to viruses and other microbes in the child’s stomach, lungs, nose, ears, and throats. Regular chiropractic adjustment can restore the integrity of the nervous system, leading to healthier children and less missed school.
