How Chiropractic Works - The Inside Story
Chiropractic is often viewed as some form of health care voodoo. It's not. But it's often not what it's purported to be either. I have been a chiropractor for 10 years, have seen thousands of patients, and am willing to explain the inside story on why chiropractic works when it works.
When chiropractic works the natural, innate intelligence within the body is released and the point of control (which is the brain) is allowed to communicate and correct naturally how the body functions. Given that chiropractors do not have a license to prescribe pharmaceuticals and do not perform surgery the answer has to be from a natural source.
Chiropractic philosophy holds that the universe is intelligent. Things are not happening by accident, rather, there are natural laws which control the stars, the sun, the moon, and our bodies. All things are happening by natural law. Chiropractic believes that a portion of this intelligence which runs the universe is located inside of us and is called Innate Intelligence.
Organization means there has to be point of control: in humans, the point of control is our brain - the most important organ in our bodies. It runs everything: breathing, heart rate, digestion, elimination, reproduction, etc. Nothing occurs inside our bodies without our brain coordinating and controlling the process.
Because our spines are movable and have 24 vertebrae which can displace, it's the logical and most likely area where interference to this beautiful system can occur. When the individual segments of the spine (vertebra) displace out of their normal position, they impinge upon nerves causing interference to the free flow of life and information from the brain to the body and back to the brain. This interference is called SUBLUXATION.
Chiropractic is the science of locating subluxations and the art to adjust or correct them thus allowing the body to function normally and the brain to heal the body from whatever is ailing it. This is natural law.
So when chiropractic works, it works because the chiropractor was able to remove the interference from this innate system of control. Additional requirements for healing are obviously things like proper diet and nutritional sources and the ability of the body to eliminate toxins and sources of injury. But when those things are controlled for, chiropractic can truly be life changing.
