Maple, ON—In conclusion of Restricted Mobility Awareness Month, I want to share with you an integral research study about arthritis.

Research has shown that a joint that has been immobilized (not moving well or has restricted joint mobility), it will begin to show irreversible degeneration (joint damage) within two (2) weeks.1

That’s right! Two (2) weeks.

How does this related to chiropractic?

A misalignment of the spine (vertebral subluxation) is a spinal joint that has restriction mobility. Which means that when spinal misalignments (subluxations) are not corrected immediately, that spinal joint will begin to have irreversible joint damage (degenerative joint disease).

“CHIROPRACTIC FIRST” – A Book Review

Monday, December 20th, 2010

Today, I am writing a short book review of “Chiropractic First: The Fastest Growing Healthcare Choice … Before Drugs Or Surgery”, by Terry A. Rondberg, DC.  Dr. Rondberg is the CEO and founder of the World Chiropractic Alliance (WCA). 

If you are looking for a simple, yet thorough review and understanding of chiropractic, the chiropractic profession and how chiropractic works to help people get healthy and stay healthy, then “Chiropractic First” is a must read.  We keep a copy of this book in our reception area for our patients to read and we often give it away as a gift to patients.

“Chiropractic First” is a nice, easy-to-read and thorough review of what chiropractic is and how chiropractic helps people. The author does a super job of explaining the essence and purpose of chiropractic care, which is, the correction of nerve interference caused by subluxations (spinal misalignments).

When it comes to the human body, many people are curious to how organs and body systems work.  Well, this book goes on to describe the major organ systems of the body (like the heart, lungs, stomach), giving a simple explanation of their overall function. 

Of importance to people seeking a chiropractor for chiropractic care, the author explains what to expect during a typical chiropractic consultation, examination and the report of findings. This section is of great importance, especially for someone who is first visiting a chiropractor.

There is a nice overiew of the benefits of chirorpactic care for children and as well for the elderly. 

Dr. Rondberg also goes on to show some of the latest chiropractic research that was available at the time of publication. 

“Chiropractic First” is an easy read and I highly recommend it to anyone who has never been to a chiropractor.  It is also a very enlightening read for anyone who has or is currently seeing a chiropractor. Be sure to ask your family chiropractor about “Chiropractic First”, by Dr. Terry Rondberg.

“My Nervous System, Why Keep It Free Of Interference?”

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

nerves_and_body_systemsThe nervous system is the master system which controls and coordinatates the function of every organ, tissue, structure and cell in your body.  Signals from your brain travel up and down your spinal cord.  The spinal cord, which is protected by the bones of your spinal column, branches out into 31 pairs of nerves.  These spinal nerves branch further to reach out to all the structures and organs of your body.  Chiropractors focus on optimizing the spinal column to keep the spinal cord and spinal nerves free of stress and interference.

The only part of the nervous system that is protected by bones is your brain and your spinal cord.  The primary purpose of the hard bones of your spinal column is to protect the delicate spinal cord, just like the skull protects the delicate brain.  Normal ideal posture reflects a spine that is in a normal neutral position – which is straight from the front view and 3 natural curves from the side view.  A chiropractor is trained to check for any postural deviations or misalignments.  The position and alignment of the spinal bones is best seen on xrays.  Many chiropractors either take xrays in their own clinics while some chiropractors refer out for xrays.

Research has shown that when the spinal column is in a neutral normal position, as described above, it is in the best position to naturally protect the spinal cord.

However, research has also shown that when the spinal column is shifted or misaligned, it puts pressure on the delicate spinal cord and on the spinal nerves leading to interference of those crucial nerve signals traveling to and from the brain to your body.

That is the effect of spinal misalignments (subluxations) – they interfere with the all-important nerve signals that give life to all your body parts and organs.  Chiropractors are trained to detect these spinal misalignments and correct them.

So, knowing that the nervous system controls how your body functions and how your body heals, it makes perfect sense to want to keep the spinal cord, spinal nerves and nervous system free of interference.  A chiropractor can help you with this.

Finding and correcting spinal misalignments for the purpose of keeping a healthy and optimally functioning nervous system is the focus of chiropractic adjustments and chiropractic care.  This is exactly what we do everyday at Back To Health Chiropractic Centre.
