The purpose of chiropractic is to locate and correct spinal subluxations. A subluxation is when a bone is out of alignment disrupting normal nerve function and reducing mental impulse.

 

Your brain holds ALL LIFE and that LIFE must travel through the nervous system to each tissue cell. This is normal function. When a subluxation occurs, we have altered nerve impulse and therefore decrease LIFE. Each person replaces cells in their body at a rate of 2.5 million cells/minute. What kind of a body will you have next year? Next year your body will be different. Your blood cells replace themselves every 12-15 days, heart cells in 4 months, internal organs in 6 months, muscles in 9 months, physical body in a year and finally skeletal system in 7 years.

 

We also know that there is an innate intelligence that travels throughout the body. That innate intelligence is the same intelligence that made the body. This intelligence that runs through your body creates matter (cells) from energy (food). Your physical body is a result of this intelligence using energy to create matter. If we interfere with the intelligence, no matter what energy we are putting in, we are going to disturb the quality of matter. As a result of subluxation, the body replaces itself with abnormal cells. Now we have a collection of abnormal cells being created in the body by the body. Not created from the outside-in but from the inside-out. Abnormal is being created by the body because the very thing that created the body is being disturbed.

The body is building itself abnormally and this can take place over a period of years. A subluxation can be there for 5, 10, 15, 20 years. It takes a long time for normal cells to replace themselves with abnormal cells and create disease.

 

For example, we know that it takes 2.5 years before you get a clinical manifestation of heart disease. But the subluxation had to be there first in order for the abnormal cells to be present. These abnormal cells in the heart were there from the inception of the subluxation. But nobody has any early signs of heart disease being formed. Cancer takes approximately 5 years to develop and most degenerative diseases start 5-15 years before symptoms. Abnormal is created in the body not out of the body. Not because you are allergic to someone or something but simply because your body is no longer receiving the maximum intelligence and thereby creating itself abnormally.

 

If it continues to create itself abnormally over time it develops the thing that man has called DISEASE. Man then names that disease with a clinical manifestation and a category based on where it is and the affected tissues.

 

If the world only understood this law of nature. We have abnormal cells being created as a result of subluxation. After the abnormal and damage comes SYMPTOMS. So the symptoms come after abnormal and damage. If you don’t believe me, take a hammer and hit your big toe and tell me if its hurts before or after. First comes the damage then comes the pain.

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_BJ1.jpgThe world views health much differently than chiropractic does. If you have a symptom, treat it. If you have a symptom you are sick. If you don’t have a symptom you are healthy. It is the biggest lie there is causing more people to suffer and never reach their true health potential. If I can get a patient who hurt their back yesterday understand that their back pain is actually a result of abnormal from 10-15 years ago then I have served that patient with a knowledge and understanding that far exceeds current thinking.

 

If chiropractic was truly about treating symptoms, the truth is drugs do a much better job and are much cheaper. But the crisis in health care today is caused from the treatment of symptom with an understanding that once the symptom is gone, that person is healthy. That person is still left with the subluxation. They still have creation of abnormal cells, still have disease, and still have damage.

 

Our world needs to hear this message more than ever before. The purpose of chiropractic is the restoration of normal mental impulses for maximum connection to innate intelligence.

One of the most important aspects of chiropractic care is understanding subluxation and why everyone from newborns to 95 year old grand parents need to be under care. Truthfully, If I only had to take care of one person in the family, it would be the YOUNGEST. Growing healthy children is much easier than fixing injured adults.

 

Some of you may have seen a Facebook post where students asked the effects of stress over time and the teacher used a water bottle to help explain. Since Subluxation is the most dangerous stress you can have, I believe it is pivotal to understand how it applies to you and your health.

 b2ap3_thumbnail_mhAWyRK.jpg

Imagine I gave you a bottle of water and asked you to hold it in your hands with your arm stretched out. Then I asked you how much it weighs. What would you say? 1 lbs, .5 lbs, 2 lbs?  The truth is, it doesn’t matter. What matters is how long you hold onto the bottle. If you hold the bottle of water for 1 minute, you will probably not notice the weight. If I hold it for 5 minutes your arm will start to feel tired and heavy. If you held it for 15 minutes your fingers would probably go numb and if you did it for an hour you probably would lose complete function in your arm and strain the supporting muscles.

 

The way we need to view subluxation is quite simple. Subluxations are correctable but what truly matters is how long it has been there. The longer it has been there, the more impact (weight) it has on your body. Subluxations are only detectable by those trained to detect it and you will never hear from your medical doctor about something they are not trained in. b2ap3_thumbnail_subluxation.jpg

 

Research confirms subluxation is not a bone pressing on a nerve. Research has shown the body is smarter than that (duh) and will go into a defense mechanism. When a certain spinal vertebrae Subluxates, the nerves around that segment and the spinal cord directly behind it begins to shrink so that nothing will press on it. However, this is meant to be a short term (adaptive) solution. If undetected and not adjusted, the longer it stays that way, the greater the impact to the body. This is why it does not cause a symptom and if symptoms are present, we have a much bigger problem on our hands.

 

Subluxations are truly a silent killer. They do not press on nerves, they cause the body to alter its state to avoid any structures pressing on it. The brain then enters a stressful (sympathetic) response. In this stressed and altered state, your ability to self regulate, produce hormones, drugs, healing, repair, function, think..etc are directly affected. Left undetected for days, weeks, months, years will all have varying effects on your health from headaches, tight muscles, anxiety, diabetes, blood pressure (insert symptom or disease here). It all comes down to how long it has been there. The higher in the spine the Subluxation the greater the altered physiology.

Getting your spine checked and adjusted for Subluxation is the most powerful health choice you have made. How long Subluxation has been there will not only determine how long it will take to correct it but also how severe of an impact it will have. Health is our greatest asset. Being proactive and not reactive means you give your brain the ability to fight disease before it consumes you.

“As the twig bends, so grows the tree” – What Alexander Pope meant by this quote was that problems that arise in childhood carry through into adulthood.

Most new patients don’t realize that The Healthy Family Chiropractic Milton provides care for not only adults, but also infants and children.  As soon as a new baby is born, the spine begins to undergo stress and irregularities may occur.  It’s extremely important that these issues are corrected as soon as possible so they don’t develop into major problems as we get older.

During childbirth, pressure is placed on the nerves and nervous system. Even when we think about an uncomplicated labour, doctors normally pull on the baby’s head and neck to help move the birthing process along. Over 90% of misalignments in the spine are caused by childbirth (including in adults).

A study found that trauma to the spine during childbirth was the cause of nearly 85% of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). It was also discovered that approximately 80% of children have misalignments in their upper neck, which is known to cause susceptibility to infection, recurrent cold and flu, ear troubles, tonsillitis, just to name a few.  Not to worry, research has shown that chiropractic adjustments that work to correct these misalignments initiate a faster immune response than antibiotic treatments do.

Scoliosis, a condition where there is abnormal curvature of the spine, can begin to develop when subluxations (spinal misalignments affecting the nerves) from childhood are left uncorrected. Subluxations can occur from things you may not expect, such as a diaper that has been fastened too tight, since it doesn’t allow for natural hip movement. Placing your baby in a Jolly-Jumper can cause undue stress to their underdeveloped spinal discs. Tossing a small child in the air as a form of entertainment can actually do more harm to the child than good; it can cause a whiplash motion on the spine, which is detrimental to the nervous system.  Subluxations also occur with more obvious traumas as well, such as a fall or a hit during a sporting event.

When left uncorrected, these misalignments or subluxations in the spine can act as a poorly built foundation causing a long life of evolving issues, such as spinal disc degeneration, arthritis, development of abnormal calcium deposits and instable ligaments surrounding the vertebrae.
