I know that you’re probably going to be celebrating Mother’s Day in a very special way. I know I will be.I’ve decided to give you something very special...
One day, a pretty young woman was standing among a small crowd on the deck of a cruise ship sailing from Malacca to Penang. Out of the corner of her eye, she saw an older gentleman, who was watching the wake behind the ship, slip, falter, and suddenly fall overboard. Without much excitement, she slowly peered over the edge to see him bobbing and screaming in the turbulent water below.

X-rays are a form of energy similar to radiowaves and sunshine. A Gonstead Chiropractic X-ray will give you no more radiation than a flight from Melbourne to Sydney! (I don’t know equivalent in Malaysia..?)

Commonly, they are used to view the bony structures of the body to rule out any pathology, and in particular to Chiropractors, a means of biomechanical analysis.

Specialized chiropractic weightbearing X-rays will be taken of your whole spine.  The frontal and side view is taken in one piece and is the ONLY way to fully analyse spinal vertebrae.

Since the Gonstead doctor wants to be as specific as possible in analysis and treatment, this information is vital in order to find the exact vertebral subluxation. All required measures are taken to insure the exposures are taken with the least amount of radiation via the use of high speed screens, collimation, gonadal shielding and automatic chemical processing.

These xrays will show the following:
I send you to Sunway Medical Centre that uses specialised digital x-rays which allows them to be very specific; measuring the segments between bones, zooming in with very high resolution and getting the clearest picture as possible.
I have also sat down with their staff to ensure that all films are taken to my specifications and directions, while providing you the lowest cost possible.

  • look for signs of pathology and fractures
  • condition of each disc and joints in the spine
  • any abnormalities you where born with
  • your posture and its curves and how your body reacts to the forces of gravity

Taking into consideration all the x-ray findings, I also takes into account your condition and examination and plans the specific adjustment required to correct your subluxation.

The spine and nervous system is the most intricate and complicated structure of the entire human body. We need to get as much information as we can before we try and correct it

Bartlett Joshua Palmer born in What Cheer, Iowa, was a pioneer of chiropractic. B.J. was son of Daniel David Palmer, the founder of chiropractic.

Where DO we come from?  Mars? A test tube?  Most of us come from two places: one cell from Mama and one cell from Papa.  Think about that for a second.  When those two tiny cells first get together, the result is something so small that you can’t even see it with the naked eye.  Yet what happens nine months later?  A perfect little baby pops out.  Well, it doesn’t actually “pop” out…there’s some effort involved, but you know what I mean.

           There are a LOT of things that happen during those nine months.  Many systems form: nervous system, cardiovascular, endocrine, reproductive, digestive, skeletal, muscular, and several others.  Do have any idea which one forms first?  Many people answer “the heart”, which actually makes sense.  We need blood pumping to develop, right?  The correct answer is actually the nervous system.  In fact, the nervous system begins to form only SEVENTEEN days after those two tiny cells get together.  Most women don’t even know they’re pregnant when their baby’s brain has begun to form.

           Now why the nervous system first?  Why not the heart?  Because the nervous system; composed of the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves in the body; is like the orchestra conductor.  It tells all the other systems what to do.  It tells your heart beat, your lungs to breathe, your stomach to digest, along with every other function in your body. 

           This is the key reason that chiropractic addresses the spine and nervous system.  It’s definitely not due to back pain, but because interference with the nervous system and the spine level will cause disease in the body.  And getting adjusted removes the interference with your nervous system, making you healthier, happier, and giving you and your family better QUALITY and QUANTITY of life!
