How to Maintain Optimal Health With Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic Benefits

Many people all over the world are turning to Chiropractors to maintain good health. Chiropractic is a natural approach to health. The brain and nervous system control everything in the human body. When the body does not function optimally there is usually nerve interference. Nerve Interference can be caused by any emotional, physical, or chemical stress. Chiropractors do not claim to cure any diseases or treat symptoms but through regular chiropractic treatments, many benefits come about in a person’s health. Maintaining proper control of your nervous system can help a person stay active and enjoy a full and long life. Working for a Chiropractor I have come to appreciate the many benefits of regular adjustments. I will share with you information that I have learned over the years. I will include some great chiropractic products that would make great gifts for chiropractors, assistants, and students.

How Does Chiropractic Work

Chiropractic works through small adjustments made by the chiropractor by freeing the nerve interference that is preventing the body from functioning at its optimal level. If the nervous system is not functioning the way it should the body is prone to more sickness, disease, and pain. Chiropractic removes these barriers so the body can function at its greatest potential. By maintaining proper spinal health many benefits will be seen. More energy, better posture, a stronger immune system, and increased vitality are just some of the health benefits.

What is a Subluxation

I’m sure many people have never heard the term subluxation or know what it is. A subluxation is the improper position or motion of the bones of the spine. This can cause irritation of the nerves and compromise nervous system function. The causes of subluxation range from things such as improper lifting, falls, accidents, bad posture, poor nutrition, hormonal problems, drug or alcohol abuse, stress, or traumas. Many subluxations can only be resolved by seeking help from a chiropractic doctor.

A chiropractic adjustment is a moving or nudging of the bones of the spine. Different Chiropractic doctors use different methods to perform these adjustments.

Some of the methods that are used are:

Instruments (adjuster, activator)
laser treatment
hot & cold therapies
the doctors’ hands
electric massager

Each Chiropractor is trained in the methods they choose. After doing a consultation and exam the doctors create a plan of treatment specific to each individual.

What are Maintenance Visits

Once patients are feeling good and they have received the relief that they want many choose to continue with regular visits. This is called ‘Maintenance’. The Chiropractic doctor will generally prescribe a patient to return for visits usually every week, every 2 or 3 or 4 weeks. Each doctor has their own plan set up for each individual patient. It is important to keep all appointments as this will help to keep your body functioning at its optimal health.
