Sorry to disappoint you, but me, or any other chiropractor will never fix your back. What we are able to do is restore proper motion in the joints, which relieves tension on the nerves and muscles and allows your body to do the healing that it is inherently made to do. As a chiropractor, we believe that the body is a perfect organism in its natural state, and all disease comes from a disruption in the body’s proper transmission of signals by the nerves which affects its ability to heal and to defend against disease-causing agents. I never treat disease. I assess to find which spinal levels are causing the dysfunction, and I adjust it to restore proper nerve flow so the nervous system may work as efficiently and effectively as possible.
“Your body does not perform as a cluster of separate mechanisms,
but rather a “cascade of events” that all starts with
proper control by the nervous system.”
The nerves that travel through and control every function of your body originate at the spinal cord and their transmission CAN be disrupted if the joints of the surrounding spinal column are NOT moving properly. This disruption in biomechanical integrity combined with altered physiological function is what chiropractors call a subluxation. It is not uncommon for this office to treat a patient with mid-back pain who also suffers from irritable bowel system, a patient with a subluxated sacrum who has been unsuccessfully trying to become pregnant, or a patient with an upper back fixation and acid reflux.
