I’m still unsure as to why I need to see a Chiropractor.
The medical definition of subluxation is a partial dislocation. This definition would imply ligament damage of the joint to a degree allowing for excess mobility. Considering subluxation is a lesser version of a complete dislocation.
Luckily Chiropractic philosophy isn’t so extreme. Subluxation is defined by Chiropractic Philosophy; as less light or energy flowing through a group of cells or in the body. It truly is a beautiful expression. The brain and nervous system send electrical signals around the body. Problems arise from mixed and incomplete messages. Hilton’s Law demonstrates that the nerve which goes to a particular joint also controls the muscles ligaments and skin surrounding that joint. Every aspect of your body is monitored and controlled by a properly functioning nervous system. Would you replace a light bulb without first trying the light switch? When the power supply is insufficient, communication is not optimal. Losing communication will lead to a lack of resources and a build-up of waste. Poor communication causes poor chemistry. Poor chemistry causes physical derangement and a lack of resources for recovery.
There are 5 progressive aspects to Subluxation.
Limited mobility or Range of Motion
Symptoms somewhere else in the body.
Muscle tone imbalances.
Swelling pain and inflammation
Degenerative Boney Change to the joint and surrounding tissue.
Most chiropractic patients seek support once they have entered stage 4 of subluxation. At this point, the limited range of motion may have existed for a long time. Degenerative changes can begin to occur in the body at any age. Joint degeneration is not normal. Physical trauma, repetitive movement patterns, poor diet, toxic environment, elevated or prolonged stress all lead to progressed physical deterioration.
The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) estimates that 90% of all world-class athletes use chiropractic care to prevent injuries and increase performance potential. Approximately 7.5% of adults seek chiropractic care on an annual basis (Reference). Those who utilize chiropractic care see a reduction of health expenses by 40% (Reference). Everyone should be under Chiropractic care to maintain optimal performance.
You may be asking yourself, Why do I need to see a Chiropractor if I don’t have back problems? We relate chiropractic to dentistry in this regard. Most people brush their teeth. Fewer people floss. Even less us a water pick. 60% of people see a dentist at least once per year. Do you brush and floss your spine on a daily basis? What kind of decay is happening to your spine which impacts the rest of your health?
