A Party In Your Spine

So what’s with the popping associated with certain types of Chiropractic adjustments? Isn’t cracking your joints supposed to be bad for you?

Not all Chiropractic techniques involve the “cavitation” of joints (the escape of oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide, which releases joint pressure). Some use table or instrument assisted adjustments where no appreciable cavitation is experienced. The ones that do however are no less safe, comfortable and effective at reducing spinal fixation, clearing nerve interference (subluxations) and improving your health. As a matter of fact, it’s been shown by John Hopkins University that joint cavitation (specifically in the hand) does not contribute to the formation of arthritis as falsely believed by grandmothers worldwide!

When you hear the noise from a professionally delivered adjustment, it’s similar to the pressure release you get from opening a bottle of champagne. It’s like having a party in your spine! Ultimately, with less pressure your joints move better, line up better and just plain feel better! 

Process of Illumination

To eliminate darkness, you must add LIGHT. Darkness is nothing more than the void left behind in the absence of energy... in this case, "LIGHT." Likewise, to eliminate coldness you must add the appropriate energy "HEAT" to fill the void left behind.

So if the darkness is the absence of light, and coldness is the absence of heat, what can be said of disease? If there's a Life Force in the body that provides health and order, could limiting the presence of the energy in the cells, tissues and organs of your body also leave behind a void? It in fact does, and Chiropractor call this void Dis-ease!

Chiropractor recognize that to eliminate dis-ease, you must add "HEALTH." When you remove interference from the nerve system and allow vitalizing Life energy to illuminate every nook and cranny of the body, the void of dis-ease is overcome. 100% innate expression over time equals health. This is the formula on which our profession was founded and the sick get well!

A Dime's Worth of Damage

The weight of a dime, 8-10 mm of Hg, that’s all it takes to drain normal nerve transmission to a trickle. Stretching a nerve by as little as 6% can also decrease its signal strength by 70%. So what does that mean for you?

Your Nerve System transmits the data of life. Depending on role, thickness and sheath covering, some nerves can relay information from your brain to your body at speeds exceeding 200 mph. If those impulses are communicating vital instructions like “how many times your heart needs to beat,” or “how should your immune system respond to a pre-cancerous lesion,” you want those messages traveling at the highest possible speeds – with NO interference! If those signals get blocked at the spinal level because of misaligned vertebrae (subluxations), damage to your health becomes eminent.

Sustained pressure and stretch on spinal nerves may not manifest symptoms immediately. Detrimental effects usually grow silently until a crisis occurs. That’s why it’s important to keep your spine in proper alignment with Chiropractic care so your good health doesn’t stop on a dime!

A Nudge in the Right Direction

Prolonged healing can cause frustration. The time it takes to get better from an injury or illness can sometimes feel like an eternity – and unfortunately, science shows that if you BELIEVE that strongly enough, you can slow or stop your recovery process in its tracks.

The subconscious mind is greatly influenced by your thoughts and beliefs. Negative mantras like “I’ll never get better,” or “I’m just getting old,” can take hold of your psyche, triggering your body to execute those commands whether you mean them or not. There’s something to be said about guarding your health against “stinkin thinkin”.

The conscious part of our brains need a nudge towards the healing direction every now and then… not just to keep you hopeful but to keep your “INNERGY” working towards its ultimate goal, to make you well. Your Chiropractor is here to give you that nudge when you need it!
