Health Professionals Opinions About Chiropractic

Many health professionals express their opinions about chiropractic. Some highly recommend chiropractic; some don’t recommend chiropractic.

Whether a health professional recommends chiropractic or not, it’s a generalized statement. Thus, positive or negative statements lack full knowledge of chiropractic techniques.

Many Opinions Over 200 Chiropractic Techniques

There are over 200 different chiropractic techniques; all of which mostly focus on CGM (Conventional General Manipulation). The vast minority focus on SCA (Specific Corrective Adjustment) techniques which include Structural Chiropractic.

Thus, saying, “Don’t go to a chiropractor.” suggests this individual has experienced all techniques. Their statement makes no sense.

Normal vs abnormal spinal range

Belief That All Chiropractors Are The Same

Most health professionals “believe” all chiropractors are the same. All patient care is synonymous with general “pop and crack” manipulation. That belief is similar to getting beef at a fast food restaurant vs a nice steak house. It’s not the same.

A Specific Corrective Adjustment has nothing in common with Conventional General Manipulation. Structural chiropractic uses gentle and specific adjustments based on an objective structural examination.

Finding The Underlying Cause

Structural shifts exist. Unfortunately, not all healthcare professionals have current knowledge about innovations in health. Some believe that calories from an apple is the same as a bag of chips.

A structural shift is a physical obstruction that prevents proper operation of the nervous system. The nervous system is the body’s electrical highway. Thus, structural shifts can potentially wreak havoc on the internal structure of the human body.

Consequently, structural shifts are typically the underlying cause of arm pain, disc herniation, dizziness, headaches, and migraines.

Headaches can stem from structural shifts.

Conventional healthcare will prescribe a medication or refer to a therapist. Usually, both recommendations patch or band-aid the underlying cause. It’s not a solution.

Lastly, Core Chiropractic offers a complimentary consultation, followed by a complete, objective Structural Examination.  Using the information we gather from the examination, we will create a customized plan of care that focuses on correcting your condition.

Immune Boost And Strengthen Bones Simultaneously

A simultaneous immune boost and bone strengthening seems too good to be true. Guess what? It’s not. In fact, there is a scientific law that backs the previous statement. Wolff’s law states bones naturally strengthen under stress.

Additionally, the stress on bones increases the production of immune, virus-fighting cells.

Bones produce specialized bone building and virus fighting cells.

Training For The Immune and Bone Boost

How do we create stress on bones and improve our health and skeletal system at the same time?

The simplest way is resistance training or jogging. You can do resistance training with body weight. Pushups, planks, and squats can be done at home or office. Make sure the intensity of the work-out gets the heart rate pumping. Doing this will ensure the stress on the bones is adequate. The best way to increase bone stress is the use of resistance bands or weights.

Stave Off Sickness And Prevent Osteoporosis

As we age, people have an increased risk of sickness and bone depletion. Doctors call bone depletion osteoporosis. The natural depletion of bone occurs in your late 20’s and early 30’s. We can prevent bone depletion with the use of resistance training, vitamin D3, and healthy diet.

Vitamin D3 is important for bone health, and it keeps us from getting sick. Fortunately, vitamin D3 is free. We absorb it from the sun. If you stay inside often, then supplementation is important. The best supplementation product is vitamin D3 with K2.

Additionally, certain foods provide us the right kinds of nutrients for bones and health. Leafy greens, nuts, and colorful vegetables and fruits pack the most nutrients. Even mushrooms contain trace amounts of vitamin D3.

The Good Kind Of Stress

Unfortunately, all stress isn’t equal. Spinal bones undergo abnormal stress when a structural shift occurs. Most people are unaware there is a normal spinal structure similar to a normal blood pressure or eyesight. When spinal bones shift outside a normal range, imbalances occur.

Imbalances will create abnormal stress on the adjacent bones. Abnormal stress will cause depletion of bones or degenerative joint disease. Depletion of joints can occur in the knee, hip, and ankle joints. Thus, it’s important to have a spinal exam to look for spinal shifts. Corrected spinal shifts will remove abnormal stress on bones.

Also, structural shifts cause headaches, migraines, neck pain, sciatica, TMJ pain, and fatigue.

You Can Do It Easily

Finally, pressure sensing cells around the bone activate the cells for immunity and bone strength. It’s easy to active those pressure sensing cells to improve your health. In addition to the other recommendations, you’ll be on your way to a bone and health boost.

Tips To Keep Your Back In Shape

Most people will have back pain at some point in life. Unfortunately, the recommendations or tools to prevent future problems are unknown. You’ll learn a few tips to keep your back in shape.

Prevention is better than looking for relief in excruciating pain. Without proper spinal recommendations, spinal deterioration occurs. Just like knee cartilage, there is spinal cartilage or discs that provide cushion between spinal segments. Preservation of these discs is important. So, how can we keep our back and neck functioning at optimal?

Tip 1. Prolonged Abnormal Positions Stress Spinal Structures

When we look at phones or hunch over a computer for prolonged periods, spinal structures are under stress. This leads to damage of discs and dysfunction of muscles and ligaments. Usually treatment is medication. Unfortunately, medication only bandages the ill-effects of structural shift. Place phones and computer screens in front of your eyes. This will help position spinal structures in a normal position.

A good core exercise is a plank.

Tips 2. Wrong Core Exercises Are Problematic

Sit-ups and crunches create stress on the lower spine through low back flexion. Spinal flexion flattens the normal curvature of the low back. Thus, a sit-up or crunch motion is no different than bending over with your knees straight. That’s when discs tend bulge or herniate unexpectedly. Utilize planks instead of sit-ups and crunches. Lastly, perform dead-lifts properly. Without great technique, dead-lifts will destroy the lower spine.

back tips

Make sure your shoes have good support.

Tip 3. Look Into Your Sole

Worn-out shoe soles can cause lower spine dysfunction. Additionally, it’s important that your shoes have proper support. Different shoe brands and models support many different foot shapes. Go into a shoe store and try-on multiple pairs to get the best support. Many stores have a return policy if the shoe doesn’t fit well.

These tips will keep your spinal structures and discs healthy. The “Normal Structure” picture is a great visual. If spinal structures are within a normal range, function will be optimal.
