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!

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.

 

I love you and I’m here for you 100%,
