Chiropractic is a healthcare system that has a philosophy delivered through an art and is backed by science.
The philosophy of Chiropractic recognizes that there is an intelligence in the human body transmitted over the nervous system that coordinates all the functions of the body’s cells organs and tissues. Chiropractors honor this intelligence by recognizing that it knows what to do to regulate and heal the body it just needs no interference. Chiropractors help remove the interference in the nervous system through the Chiropractic adjustment without drugs or surgery.
Chiropractors are the only profession trained to detect and correct subluxations in the spine. Subluxations are misalignments in the spine where two or more bones move into a poor position, produce pressure and stress to the nerves or spinal cord and block life in the body. The Chiropractic adjustment helps to align the spinal bones (vertebra) and removes pressure on the nerves to restore life.
The Chiropractic adjustment is how the Chiropractor applies his or her art to the body. There are over 200 different corrective techniques for adjusting a patient and there are 24 moveable bones of the spine that may be out of alignment and need a specific adjustment. Chiro means hands and the first Chiropractic adjustment was delivered to the spine by hand. For many years Chiropractors have incorporated different instruments to analyze and deliver Chiropractic adjustments that may be more specific or lighter force to the spine. Almost every Chiropractor has his or her own method he prefers to remove stress from the nervous system but it’s a Chiropractors heart, head and hands that guide him to get the best results from the patient.
The Basic anatomy of the spine and its connection to the central nervous system is profound. The Brain houses the intelligence that runs the body and sends that intelligence down the spinal cord and then out through the nerves to every cell, tissue and organ in the body. The nervous system regulates all the other systems of the body. That means it effects your heart rate, your body temperature, your blood pressure, your digestion, your hormones, your posture, balance, coordination and so much more. When we get adjusted all these systems are affected. This is how Chiropractors have been able to help so many people with all different disorders and problems.
Chiropractic is great for everyone and every age. There is no age limit for getting adjusted. At MNJ Chiropractic and Wellness Clinic we see everyone from new born babies to osteoporotic 98-year-old men and women. We see pregnant patients as well as post spinal surgeries. Chiropractic does a great job at getting people out of pain but it is so much more than pain relief. The Chiropractic adjustment helps improve coordination, balance and range of motion by stimulating an area of the brain called the cerebellum. The adjustments help stimulate upper areas of the brain to help with focus, hormone regulation and so much more.
