WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENS TO YOU (and your kids) WHEN YOU (and they) GET ADJUSTED?

A chiropractic adjustment does so much more than just release a joint, taking tension off of the nerves and muscles.  In fact I’ve heard it said this way:

 

Going to a chiropractor just for pain relief,

Is like robbing a bank and just stealing the pens!

 

A 2011 study by 9 doctors using PET scan technology (neuro-imaging technique) found that ONE CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT did the following:

 

1. Sympathetic tone was inhibited (ie. anti-stress effect) 

This literally means that your body has a harder time feeling stressed when you get adjusted.  Think about that!   Wow!

 

2. Salivary amylase was decreased (drop in the feeling of being stressed)

This is a measurement of the type of saliva that is present in someone that is highly stressed.

 

3. Regional brain metabolic changes (the brain is greatly influenced by the spine)

The metabolism of your brain is altered – it becomes more efficient in its firing (hence your general feeling of more energy) and it quiets down, just like it would in a stress-free environment.

 

4. Decreased muscle hypertonicity (relaxation of muscles)

The muscles around the neck, shoulders and back all release their tension – even in areas of the spine that weren’t actually touched during the adjustment. This is why for so many of you a proper upper spine adjustment is exactly what is required to release the tension in your lower back.

 

5. Decreased pain intensity (feeling better)

Pain is a chemical reaction.  The depolarization level of mechanoreceptors and pain receptors are altered to a level that they would be in a stess-free person.

 

What does this all mean?

This proves that no matter your age, your health, your heritage or your genetics, your SPINAL INTEGRITY will dictate NERVE SYSTEM FUNCTION! Remember HEALTH = OPTIMAL FUNCTION OF YOUR BODY. It is not the absence of symptoms.

 

Your back is your lifeline.  Your back determines whether or not you are always stressed. 

And since stress = death, I’d say that’s pretty important!
