What is chiropractic and how can it help?

Centenary Chiropractic Centre

Over 100 years ago, D.D. Palmer (the Founder of Chiropractic) had a "big idea" — that good health can be sustained naturally, without drugs or surgery, through chiropractic care. Today, chiropractic is the second largest licensed health care profession. 

Chiropractors work with and enhance the body's natural ability to heal itself without drugs or surgery. Like all professional health care practitioners, chiropractors follow definite protocols to gain the information to provide you with the best care. They will take your history and conduct physical, orthopaedic and neurological examinations and may order or take X-rays.

What is chiropractic?

Centenary Chiropractic Centre

We know that the nervous system controls the functions of every tissue, organ and system in the body. Chiropractic concerns itself with the relationship between structure (primarily ale spine) and function (primarily coordinated by the nervous system) of the human body, and how that relationship affects the restoration and preservation of health. 

When that relationship is compromised by a spinal bone interfering with your nervous system (a vertebral subluxation), your chiropractor will deliver a spinal adjustment (a specific, precise, corrective force to the offending spinal segment). 

This correction permits normal nerve transmission, enabling the body's innate recuperative power to begin the healing process. It is said that the body needs no help or interference in looking after itself.

The Adjustment and Your Nervous System

Wednesday, September 29, 2021

The term used to describe what your chiropractor does to your spine is called an adjustment. There are many ways to perform an adjustment and this will vary depending on the patient, age and particular spinal imbalance that is present.

Prior to performing the adjustment, your chiropractor must first perform a thorough examination. As well as ruling out other conditions that may require care from a different health practitioner, your chiropractor needs to assess areas of imbalance in the body. When an area of imbalance is found in the spine it is often called a vertebral subluxation.

 

A common misconception is that “bones go out of place” and chiropractic adjustments “put the bones back in”. This is certainly not the case. A vertebral subluxation has more to do with the delicate balance of the spine being altered - affecting normal alignment, movement and deep muscle balance.

 

Because the deep spinal muscles and joints are very rich in nerve receptors that continually send messages to the brain, a subluxation can alter the nerve messages and affect the image that the brain receives about your body. This process is known as dysafferentation.

 

Dysafferentation may result in spinal pain, headaches, numbness and tingling, joint and muscle pain as well as altering your general health and well being. Even problems such as elevated blood pressure, asthma and digestive problems may be related to or aggravated by dysafferentation. In many cases, the problem develops over many years before the symptoms are obvious.

 

An adjustment to the spine, whether applied as a quick or slow stretch, aims to reset the system by activating the nerve receptors. Only the body knows where the spinal bones are meant to be at any given point of time. It is the job of your chiropractor to supply the energy at the right time and at the right place so your body can use it.
