What is Chiropractic?
SCIENCE: Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body. So the nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and millions of nerves. Your brain is protected by your skull. Your spinal cord is protected by the 24 movable bones of your spine called vertebrae. So these vertebrae were designed to allow motion. So they are more vulnerable to injury than the rigid skull. Therefore, we see that many everyday activities can cause these spinal bones to lose their normal position or motion. So this can result in nervous system dysfunction and ultimately, ill health. When a vertebra loses it’s normal position it can rub, choke, or pinch a nearby nerve. At Genesis of Horsham PA, we call this condition a Vertebral Subluxation (sub-luk-sa’-shun) Complex (VSC).
The chiropractic approach to health is to detect, reduce, and help prevent nervous system dysfunction.
ART: Chiropractic is the art of detecting these Vertebral Subluxation Complexes which produce nerve interference and correcting them. Drugs or surgery are not used. Chiropractic uses a hands-on method called an adjustment. A chiropractic adjustment is the use of a specific amount of force in a precise direction applied to the vertebra in the spine that is causing nerve interference. So adjustments help to return the bone to it’s normal position, thus relieving tension and pressure from the nerves. Therefore chiropractic adjustments are extremely safe and effective.
PHILOSOPHY: Chiropractic is also a philosophy. It is a way at looking at health. Chiropractors realize that doctors or drugs don’t heal people; only the body can heal itself. So a properly functioning body will have the ability to heal itself to a greater extent. All the drugs and antibiotics in the world will not heal a cut on the finger of a dead person. But a cut on the finger is easily healed normally. So when bones in the spine mis-align and rub, choke, or pinch nerves, this impairs the body to function at 100% capacity.
The Vertebral Subluxation Complex is the underlying cause of many health problems.
Instead of treating and masking these symptoms like other types of doctors attempt to do, chiropractors focus on detection and elimination of nerve interference. As an example, if the oil light on your dashboard in your car lights up, you can mask the symptom by covering it up with black tape. So does this solve the problem? We are interested in getting to the cause of loss of health. So then we can go about the best way of correcting this. Therefore we understand that the body needs no help to heal itself, just no interference.
How do I know if I have a Vertebral Subluxation Complex?
The only way to truly know if you have a Vertebral Subluxation Complex is to have a trained chiropractor evaluate your spine in Horsham PA. A chiropractor uses several methods to detect subluxations to be sure that you have one before we treat you. First, using the latest in technology, Genesis Chiropractic Clinic of Horsham PA checks the spine for nerve interference and shows you exactly what we have found. Your spine will be checked for motion and we will feel for a bone that isn’t properly aligned. This skill takes years of practice to master.
How can I get a Subluxation?
There are three main causes of a Vertebral Subluxation Complex. We call those the 3 T’s: Traumas, Toxins, Thoughts.
Any direct trauma to the spine can cause vertebrae to mis-align and lead to subluxation. Traumas to our spines begin at birth. Even in a normal delivery. Add to that a pair of doctor’s hands pulling and twisting the baby’s neck to aid the process. So a baby can often have severe multiple Vertebral Subluxation Complexes. Therefore it is not infrequent that you will see someone on the way home after giving birth stop by a chiropractor’s office.
If we make it through the birth process, we encounter many subluxations in the difficult childhood years. Falling, wrestling with other children, and other common incidents lead to additional vertebral subluxation complexes.
As adults, injuries such as a car accident, a fall, or a sports injury can causes bones in the spine to misalign. There are other types of trauma that can cause a subluxation. So for example, poor posture at work in Horsham PA, or while sleeping, and improper lifting habits can lead to multiple subluxations.
The stresses of adulthood also play a role. And the stresses of anger and irritation play a role. The stresses of environmental pollution. From the air and water we drink, the foods we eat, and the drugs many take. So all of these produce more vertebral subluxations.
Seven Laws of Subluxation
- You don’t necessarily feel it.
- Subluxation causes health problems and early degeneration. They will reduce number of years in your life.
- Yoga, diet, exercise, acupuncture cannot remove subluxation. If you are running and have subluxation do you think running if good for you? (Wear and tear). So I obviously teach all of this is good, but it doesn’t eliminate subluxation.
- Everybody who had a spine is susceptible to subluxation. Therefore in my clinic I can have a three day old baby and a ninety year old person.
- The only doctors trained to reduce eliminate and reduce subluxation is chiropractor.
- The only way to know for sure if you have Subluxation is to get checked.
- So the sooner you identify subluxation, the better. (Just like a cavity in your teeth)
