What does Chiropractic
Throughout chiropractic’s 118 year history it has often faced extreme challenges and prejudices. The only reason it still exists is because of the valuable service it has given to mankind. “Miracle” cases kept chiropractic growing in the face of daunting adversity.
The reality is that these “miracle” cases are merely the result of applying the scientific principles and techniques upon which chiropractic is based.
Because the entire premise and practice of chiropractic are dedicated to removing stress from the nervous system, it is no wonder that epileptic conditions and other nervous system dysfunctions have the potential to respond positively to chiropractic care.
The lower parts of the brain stem and other delicate central nervous system structures, as well as the vessels transmitting blood flow for the brain and the cerebrospinal fluid, are located in the upper neck. This is why vertebral subluxation in this region can have a profound impact on one’s health and function.
Vertebral subluxations occur when the body encounters excessive amounts of stress.
Every scientist, architect, and mechanic understands that structure affects function. If you took out a support beam in your house, it would dramatically affect the function of your house’s frame and cause serious problems.
Vertebral subluxation is an alteration of normal spinal position which by the nature of the anatomy of the spinal column, will negatively impact the delicate nervous system tissues that travel through it.
Stress comes in many forms and we can each relate to how significantly it affects us.
Growing research is not only showing how general stress negatively affects the brain, but also specifically how altered spinal alignment and range of motion negatively affect the brain.
Chiropractic discovered over 100 years ago that these alterations in normal spinal structure do in fact negatively impact our health and function, that they can be corrected and that maintaining optimal spinal structure throughout a lifetime has positive health benefits.
It’s a simple concept based upon our intricate anatomy.
