How does a Chiropractic Adjustment work and why is it so important to overall Health?

This past month:

Pope Francis fell while delivering a mass, some say due to his chronic sciatic pain. 
 
 
In all likelihood, both incidences could have been avoided had the world’s formerly greatest golfer and the 79-year-old Pontiff received specific chiropractic adjustments to their low backs to help them with their chronic painful conditions.

How does a Chiropractic Adjustment work and why is it so important to overall Health?
 
Empirical evidence suggests that chiropractic patients tend to be healthier than those who depend on drugs and surgeries to address their health problems. You may ask, “How and why is this?”
 
First and foremost – Gravity never takes a day off and my job is to improve your “relationship with gravity” by making sure your 206 bones are in alignment. You know that if one of the 4 tires of your car is out of alignment what happens…. imagine any one of the bones of your feet, spine, limbs or skull being misaligned. Like the misaligned tires it will make you move unsteadily and if you don’t quickly remedy the misalignment you will have to replace the tire (shoulder, hip or spinal bone).
 
Currently, there are approximately 285,000 hip replacements and 600,000 knee replacements in the US yearly. The best ways to prevent these are:
 
1. Keep your joints in alignment through monthly chiropractic adjustments
2. Keep your weight down
3. Put your joints through their full movements. – The 6 Power Kinetics® Movements are great for this. Ask me about these if you don’t know them.
 
It is not just the biomechanical benefit mentioned above of having your bones in proper alignment that creates your improved health; there are also neurological reasons:
 
All joints have nerve endings called mechanoreceptors, which tell the brain where the body is in space. When a spinal vertebra for instance is stuck within its normal range of motion the mechanoreceptors lose the impulse and the integrity of the nervous system is compromised – this can lead to pain, loss of sensation, muscle spasms (as the body tries to make the bone move) and has autonomic consequences to the related organs in the area. (via the intermediolateral cell column of the spinal cord, which allows communication between the muscle and the related organ)
 
Therefore, a chiropractic adjustment does not just “un-pinch a nerve” it stimulates the mechanoreceptors in that joint and affects the entire nervous system and thereby the entire body. In other words, a spinal adjustment actually “un-pinches the entire nervous system.” 
 

This is how it helps people with other health issues besides back pain and sciatica such as allergies, digestive problems, headaches, chronic fatigue, ADHD, skin issues (the largest organ of the body)  visual disturbances… and basically anything connected with the nervous system, which is everything since the nervous system controls every muscle, gland and organ in the body.

If you look at people who regularly receive specific chiropractic treatments they are not only straighter and in less pain… they have more vitality! This is how you will be if you maintain your good health by including the necessary and often overlooked aspect of keeping your joints in proper alignment and your nervous system free of avoidable tension.
 
To your great health,

  1. Thank you for your email, Dr. Charles! I am really enjoying my 100-hour AK course at home. I’m only up to the second session but already feel I have gained a ton of value and am using it with my patients with success! High Pi!
