A Chiropractic adjustment does so much more than just release a joint and taking tension off 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!

What happens when you get adjusted? When the chiropractor evaluates your spine, he/she is looking for the presence of a subluxation.

A simple explanation is that a subluxation is a misalignment in the spine that interferes with the normal transmission of nerve and life throughout the body.
This can be caused by 3 main types of stress: physical, chemical and/or emotional trauma throughout a person’s lifetime. (Three T’s: Trauma’s, Toxins and Thoughts)

 

An adjustment is the correction of a subluxation. It removes the nerve interference with the intention of having the body work more efficiently and effectively.

 

But, a detailed analysis of the literature reveals that a properly applied, specific chiropractic adjustment does so much more. A 2011 and 2017 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. Less stress hormones = better health. Think about that! Wow!

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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 mean for you?

This shows that no matter your age, your health, your heritage or your genetics, your SPINAL INTEGRITY will dictate NERVE SYSTEM FUNCTION! In other words, having a healthy spine is the best investment you can make.

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!

 

Here for you 100%,
