American Chiropractic is a healing profession that has existed since 1895. It includes the diagnosis, treatment and prevention (of malfunctions) of the musculoskeletal system, the entire nervous system and organs. American Chiropractic is based on the undisputed medical knowledge that the nervous system is our body’s “central computer” that coordinates and monitors all body functions, body parts and organs.
Misalignment of vertebrae as cause of nervous disorders and back pain
If the vertebrae become chronically misaligned due to a trauma or other forms of stress on the spine, this will lead to irritations or disorders of the nervous system or result in nerve blockages – the organism no longer can maintain its health, functions less well and the functional capacity and energy flow of the body can become significantly impaired. You will feel sick and unwell.
The malfunctions of the spine are corrected using the “gentle method” of American Chiropractic. This is why it is also well suited for children and older patients. Misalignments are adjusted by applying a gentle impulse, bringing the injured and possibly dislocated vertebrae back into their optimal position.
American Chiropractic is a particularly gentle and effective method in which – provided it is applied by professional therapists - even gentle impulses are enough to bring misaligned vertebrae back into alignment. The treatment is completely painless.
Back pain and more – what causes misaligned vertebrae?
The human body was made for movement. As long as we move in a healthy and proper way according to our natural movement patterns, we can basically lead a life that is free of symptoms. Unfortunately, there are countless factors that can cause malfunctions of our musculoskeletal system including nerve blockages, for example a poor posture (when seated), permanent long-term stress at work, sitting for long periods and a lack of exercise, but also difficult births etc. In addition, accidents and injuries (even if long in the past) can be the reason for compromised movements patterns and misalignments.
American Chiropractic treats the whole person
American Chiropractic focuses on the person as a whole. It aims at going to the root causes when treating people instead of just treating or supressing the symptoms. Furthermore, certain operations may possibly be avoided if you let yourself be treated with American Chiropractic from time to time to avoid certain misalignments becoming a chronic condition.
Acute or chronic vertebral misalignments can damage organs
The condition may be acute or chronic, or even show no symptoms at all for years. This is how a misaligned vertebra may cause disease in an organ over the years.
If you go to a dentist with a (severe) toothache, would you agree if he said: "First take something for the pain" and then sent you home with a package of painkillers? Or would you rather he said: "If it doesn’t get better until the next time, then I’ll give you stronger painkillers, or we’ll pull the tooth." On the contrary, you expect him to treat the cause and not the symptoms, and rightly so!
Anyone who doesn’t spend a little time on his health each day will one day have to sacrifice a lot of time for his illness!
Treating pain without fighting the cause can make things even worse
If you only suppress pain or other complaints (caused by misalignments) with drugs or other types of treatment (instead of eliminating the misalignment), you can in the worst case even damage the body's own warning system by deadening a nerve because it signals too strongly that something is wrong.
Looking at it this way, many of us take better care of their car than of their own body. If the low fuel indicator on your car’s dashboard lit up you would hardly get the idea of masking it with sticky tape or simply removing it.
