Why Chiropractic Works

September 24, 2019

We’ve all experienced the frustration of being blocked on a highway at some point. At first it’s ok. But after a time, the annoyance builds. “Come on! We can’t do what we need to do!” Oh the sweet relief, when the brake lights disappear and traffic starts moving. As you accelerate, you may see the cause of the blockage; maybe a car that broke down and has been towed, removed from the flow of cars. 

Chiropractic is like that tow truck, removing a subluxation so life-giving information can flow. 

Your nervous system controls everything that happens in your body, as it relays information from the brain. If this one system isn’t functioning well, the others won’t either–from the circulatory to the respiratory systems, the organs and muscles.

The nerves’ main highway is the spinal column. If there’s interference here in the communication from your brain to your body, then things won’t be working as well as they could be. Interference is also called subluxation, and it means that the vertebrae of the spine are not properly aligned and are putting pressure on the spinal column and nerves. 

A simple adjustment by a chiropractor can immediately remove the subluxation. However, most people have had years of stress on their body, so they may have had these misalignments for decades. Muscles have adapted to that bone being out of place and once the nerve interference has been relieved, the body needs to be retrained to hold itself in alignment. This means more than one adjustment is often necessary.

If a baby is adjusted from birth, they are more likely to hold an adjustment better without going back out of alignment. They could go months without an adjustment, but eventually even just new movements such as crawling and walking will put different pressures on their bones and muscles. 

This is true for most people. Trauma will cause pain and make you notice a subluxation more. However, even daily life’s actions and stresses will pull bones out of alignment.   

A chiropractic evaluation can show where your body needs to be adjusted and get your nervous system back to its full capacity, with life and wellness flowing through you. 

Practical Examples 

At Choice Chiropractic, two of the major complaints that we see relieved as a by-product of chiropractic, are digestive and reproductive issues. It was amazing how many people suffer from the discomfort of constipation. Your body needs to get rid of waste material quickly and being regular is part of a healthy lifestyle.

After being adjusted one woman asked, “Could that adjustment have had any effect on…needing to go to the bathroom?” Definitely as her body’s function improved with no interference from a subluxation, it clearly received the signal that she needed to go to the bathroom immediately. 

Menstrual problems are a serious issue in many women’s lives. Another woman had presumed she was premenopausal because her cycles had stopped. The night after her adjustment, with her brain and body communicating more effectively, she started her cycle. Infrequent cycles plagued one patient. After chiropractic care, her period was regular four months in a row. What a relief to feel your body finding its rhythm.
