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.

Why Chiropractic Care is Important

Why Chiropractic Care is Important

Tuesday, May 19, 2020 Chiropractic Care is Important

Many people aren’t aware of how spinal pain shows in their bodies. Spinal pain doesn’t just show itself for no reason, unless its from a trauma. It’s a process that happens over time and could be triggered by the simplest thing. Like coughing or sneezing. It’s important that we keep an eye on how we do everyday tasks and to get regularly checked by your chiropractor.

It starts when your spinal vertebra has been knocked, pulled or twisted out of alignment, which in some cases can show a initial soreness, but that subsides and is not thought of again. This is when a gradual evolution of damage begins as that segment has become “subluxated” and non- functional.

In order for our bodies to function and produce the synovial fluid that makes them glide, all joints need movement. Once “fixed” that joint starts to deteriorate. This is the process:

After 3 days, synovial fluid stops being produced.

After 3 weeks, the joint become dry and stiff due to lack of fresh fluid. Nerve root pressure starts but no pain yet. Nerve transmission becomes affected. ( Research proves that the pressure of a 10 cent piece can drop nerve flow by 60%!)

After 6 weeks, pits can be seen microscopically as the cartilage surface cracks. Organs and glands in the vicinity are further affected by the nerve function.

After 3 months, cartilage surface damage can be seen with the naked eye. Discomfort is now felt from nerve root inflammation.

After 6 months, pain now makes itself known as the joint cartilage surface roughens caused by further damage.

You can now understand more clearly how it is so important to get your spine checked regularly and to not miss your appointments. Ignoring the pain is dangerous and it risk permanent damage to the spinal joints. So don’t ignore the signs and see your chiropractor as soon as you can. If you have any more questions about Chiropractic care, speak with your local chiropractor today.
