The Doctored is In


My copy of the new documentary, "Doctored," came in.  You can watch it in the office.  It will be playing it in the waiting room for quite a while.   It has an important message about patients' freedom to choose the health care they want.

Chiropractic Subluxation: Knowledge Saves Your Health



(Yahoo chiropractor auburn ny 13021)

The chiropractic adjustment is the star of the show when it comes to clearing the spine of subluxations.

The term subluxation has a very different and important meaning to chiropractors.  In the medical realm a subluxation is a partial dislocation in a joint.  In chiropractic it is a process describing how the body responds to stress with the spine as a central distributor of life saving information.  

Clearly, we want our central information distributor to be working at its best.  While most health care practitioners see chiropractic as a treatment for back pain, chiropractors see the long term consequences of ignored subluxations as a contributor to auto-immune disorders.

We are concerned with auto-immune disorders because they are on the rise.

The subluxation process is a weakness and fixation in the spine that also weakens how the body stands up to stress.  The body will begin to attack itself, in a similar way that auto-immune diseases attack the body.  Somehow the message of healing is mixed up and degeneration replaces the healing response.

Subluxations do not only come from the spine.  Subluxations can be response from organ stress, muscle stress, or emotional stress.  Whenever there is inflammation, a toxic reaction, a fight or flight response, a subluxation will be noticed in the spinal joints.  

A subluxation in a spinal joint sends signals to the brain that then creates one or more of the following:
  • pallor: pale skin due to decreased oxygen in the skin, and mucous membranes
  • nausea 
  • dizziness
  • faintness
  • syncope
  • change in blood pressure (hmm... "they" say the cause of high blood pressure is unknown)
  • change in respiration (do you know anyone with chronic breathing problems?)
  • change in heart rate 
  • reduced blood flow at the joint (this causes joint damage)
  • muslce spasm (painless)
  • sometimes pain

Pain is not always a reaction in subluxated joints, since pain is perceived in the brain with an emotional attachment.  

Pain occurs when there is a sustained and intense stimulus on the body.  It can be from: 
  • an injury, 
  • chemical stress 
  • dietary stress that impairs smooth muscle activity
  • emotional stress that sends brain chemicals down the spinal cord that disrupts body functions
  • a previously learned brain pattern that increases pain intensity for no reason or with minor injuries
With this knowledge you have the opportunity to take better care of your health.  When you know how to utilize chiropractic care properly, you can help yourself heal without the confusing, illogical methods of drug treatment.

I will continue on this topic in future posts.

Chiropractic Insights: You Are Your Health Care

(Yahoo chiropractor auburn ny 13021 )

Here is my chiropractic article in this week's Citizen.  I debunk the myth that insurance coverage makes you healthier.
We need insurance for emergencies and hospitalizations, but chronic health problems should not really be the burden it is on the health system.  It starts with us.
