The first chiropractic adjustment for a subluxation was demonstrated on September 18th 1985. It was then that Chiropractic care started to develop into a legitimate and successful form of treatment for individuals with health ailments.
Subluxations are one of the most common reasons why people turn to chiropractic care.
When the motion or position of the spinal bones are compromised this can create absolute chaos within the body, not only affecting the spine but also causing stress, pain and discomfort to other areas of the body. Subluxations inhibit the body from operating properly in almost every way.
Incorrect positioning of the spine can and most likely, will irritate, compress or stretch nerve tissue, which is already extremely delicate. As the immune system weakens, strength and coordination are negatively affected and organs may cease to function normally.
However, getting adjusted by a licensed chiropractor can increase your body’s white blood cell count by thirty percent! A raise in white blood cells means that your body can defend itself against the common cold, the flu and other contagious illnesses. Getting adjusted is not just for adults, children can also benefit from chiropractic care especially during that time of year when the common cold is most prominent. Having your child adjusted can help raise their immune systems to help fight against those nasty viruses.
Subluxations cause an increase in pain levels, pain consistency, as well as stiffness and fatigue. As if the physical symptoms weren’t enough, there could also be major affects to stress and our state of mind. It’s important to realize that subluxations are not just a tight wound, sore muscles in your back. They are silent killers which over time decreases the body’s immunity to disease. Think about subluxation this way, if you tie a piece of string around the tip of your finger very tightly and held it there, would you simply put hot water on it to decrease the tightness in your finger? No. Would you try and rub the tip of your finger to ease the tension of the string? Maybe, but the string is still tightly wound against the finger tip. The only way to ease the tension is to release the string from the finger. In essence, the only way to relive and treat subluxation is to release that damaging tension from the spine. This is accomplished through chiropractic adjustments.
