The Causes And How Chiropractic Can Help:
SPINAL MISALIGNMENT (VERTEBRAL SUBLUXATION)
There are many possible causes for health problems.
As mentioned earlier, some Health Problems are related to the integrity of the spine and nervous system.
For health problems that could be related to the spine, we must first check for spinal misalignments.
Spinal misalignment happens when the spinal bones (vertebra) shift out of their normal position but not completely dislocated or fractured.
The misalignment can range from very minimal shifting that you don’t feel anything to more serious ones where pain, inflammation and muscle tension can be experienced.
If the spine is misaligned (even very slightly), the misaligned spinal bone will impose damaging pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. This pressure interrupts vital nerve flow, reducing the ability of the nerves to transport messages from the brain to the rest of the body (and back to the brain) efficiently.
Due to the inferior impulse transmission to and from the brain, the body will not be able to function at its optimal (includes major organ and system function). Thus, a compromised nervous system will lead to a lowered state of health.
Misaligned spine can also cause uneven pressure on the spinal discs, muscles and ligaments leading to slipped discs, inflamed nerves and tissues (pain and numbness), spinal bone degeneration (bone spurs…), spinal deformation (permanent hunching) etc.
Misaligned spine can cause the whole spinal structure to become weaker and be out of balance resulting to potential injuries, postural distortions, long/short legs, uneven wearing-out of bone joints etc.
Since spinal misalignment interferes with the body’s innate ability to heal and function at its optimal level, it can lead to many health problems manifested as common conditions like headaches, backaches, joint pain, fatigue, flu, allergies, hunching posture etc.
Chiropractic maintains the optimal alignment of the spine so the spine stays healthy and strong and supports the spinal cord and nerves properly. By correcting spinal misalignments and improving nervous system function, Chiropractic is clinically proven to improve health and wellness.
Chiropractors are the only health professionals trained in the location, analysis and the correction of spinal misalignments.
MORE CAUSES (STRESSES)
Everyday stresses can cause spinal misalignments resulting to health problems and vice versa.
Simple everyday stresses include:
Physical stress like improper standing, walking, sitting, sleeping posture; injuries from accidents/sports, carrying heavy objects; wearing high heels or poor footwear; repetitive movements from sports, jobs or housework; birth trauma (mother and baby); or lack of sleep and exercise.
Chemical stress from poor diet, smoking, alcohol, pollution, harmful environment or excessive medication.
Emotional stress from work, family, school or traumatic events.
Like a vicious cycle, if the cause that’s leading to spinal misalignments and health problems is not addressed, the health problems may get worse which in turn will lead to more stress, causing more spinal/nervous system damage. This will eventually result to more serious health issues like heart diseases, cancer, fatal infections or permanent disability.
Therefore, it is crucial to understand and address the cause (stresses) of your health problems and if it’s affecting or affected by your spinal health. By managing the cause and improving the condition of the spine, your body will be able to deal with the health problem more effectively.
Start with a Chiropractic Checkup to see if Chiropractic can help with a more holistic approach to your health problems.
Chiropractic is not the be-all and end-all of disease management but it is a means to an end if the end goal is health management.
