Basics of Chiropractic Care
Science Behind Chiropractic Adjustments
Feeling low energy? Your body’s communication system may be interrupted.
Luckily, our bodies have the wisdom within to correct and heal themselves. Activating this wisdom and restoring the flow of energy may start with a simple inquiry: is something blocking my energy system?
Innate Intelligence is the force within the body which produces healing. This force keeps the body healthy when it is not interfered with. It is the power of communication in the body; the flow of energy through the system of the nerves.
This system travels through the spinal column from the brain to all organs and functions. When there is an interruption in the alignment of the spine, this interference, called a subluxation, dims the effectiveness of innate intelligence to flow.
Chiropractic founder, D.D. Palmer identified the force of Innate Intelligence, the powerful healing energy originating in the spine. He introduced chiropractic adjustment to remove interference from the spinal column so that the energy force could flow.
Correction of the subluxation with a chiropractic adjustment allows the body to function properly. D.D. Palmer’s first official adjustment leads to a restoration of hearing in the man he adjusted.
Palmer had studied the nerve system and identified that the top Vertebra held a key in allowing the brain to communicate to the body and allow its function to be optimal. While the practice of specific Spinal Manipulation itself is ancient, Palmer and his son founded the practice of Chiropractic to help activate people’s own healing power within.
Chiropractic adjustments remove the disruption to allow innate intelligence to flood the body with its own natural healing energy source. This allows your body to express its best health. An adjustment is a form of spinal manipulation to alleviate back pain as early as the first week of treatment. Most people turn to chiropractic when they are in pain, injured on the job or in a car accident, or suffering from chronic headaches. Chiropractic addresses more than pain, it also addresses the function of the autonomic nervous system.
In essence, Innate Intelligence can be described as the light that shines from within the body. It is your energy flow. When healthy, there is vitality, ideal function, and freedom from chronic conditions, and the brain can communicate without interruption to all organs and the autonomic nervous system. When your energy system is blocked by spinal misalignment (subluxation), it is like the wires within your lamp are pinched or disrupted, and you cannot express your light at full capacity.
A subluxation means “less light expressing.”
Anyone who has experienced pain knows it can feel like darkness spreading across the body, dimming the joy and freedoms of life. Whether it is chronic or acute, Chiropractic can help to correct the subluxation, activate the body’s innate intelligence, and restore the flow of light energy within so healing can happen.
