Chiropractor Weekly Sticky: 101 Ways to Get Subluxated

Number 27 – Dropping 420 lbs on your head at the Olympics. Can you imagine gold medalist weight lifter Matthias Steiner’s next Chiropractic visit… ‘hey doc, my neck’s sore and I’ve been getting these bad headaches. Think it could be my pillow?”

The father of Chiropractic, D.D. Palmer recognized 3 ‘T’s as being the major cause of nerve interfer- ence (aka Subluxation): Trauma, Toxins and Thoughts. The first ‘T’ is pretty obvious, but many patients overlook the last two. TOXINS come in the form of pesticides, artificial additives in our food, cigarette smoke and the most common of all, pharmaceuticals (yes, drugs are foreign to the body and put added stress on your nerve system). Constant THOUGHTS of fear, worry and depression can also weaken your sensitive nerve system and make it harder to heal.

Many patients believe it’s only physical things like car accidents, bad pillows and the occasional ‘400 lbs barbell on the head’ that can cause nerve interference, when in reality it’s the daily bombardment of hid- den food toxins and stressful thoughts that commonly do the most damage.

Chiropractor Weekly Sticky: Chiropractic’s Cradle

Newton’s Cradle is a simple device that demonstrates the laws of momentum with a series of swing- ing spheres. The progression of many health problems can be described in a similar, sequential manner.

A small slip, fall or bump nudges your spine out of alignment and produces stress in your Nerve System called a Subluxation. It creates a state of Dis-Ease, a disruption in the body’s ability to maintain perfect health. Over time, Pathological changes in cells lead to physiologic Dysfunctions in organ systems which you eventually experience as Symptoms. If this negative momentum is allowed to continue, the last ball in line is Death…

Many patients are unaware of their health issues until ball #5- long after the negative cascade begins. That’s why Chiropractors encourage preventative screenings for Subluxations. The goal is to get checked before the first ball swings.

Chiropractic Weekly Sticky: Healing with the Brakes on…

foot on brake

Ever feel like you’re spinning your wheels when it comes to staying healthy? You eat right, exercise five days a week and try to get enough sleep – you’ve got the ‘pedal to the metal’ when it comes to staying fit, but something’s holding you back. Maybe it’s time to pay more attention to your Nerve System.

Although you’ve got one foot on the gas, Subluxations can put the brakes on your pro- gress. Subluxations are troublesome misalignments in your spine that irritate your Nerve System and rob you of potential health energy. The effect is like trying to drive with your brakes on. You’ve got your fitness throttle wide open, but you’re going nowhere fast.

If you want to stop spinning your wheels when it comes to your health, prioritize your spinal care. When it comes to unleashing more health horse power, nothing releases the brake like Chiropractic can.
