Chiropractic is a healthcare profession that is based on the principles of science, philosophy, and art. It is founded on the understanding of the connection between the brain and the body, and the central role that the nervous system plays in coordinating the body's functions. The core idea behind chiropractic is the belief that the power that created the body also has the ability to heal it. When injuries or other factors cause the spine to become misaligned or to lose its range of motion, this can interfere with the flow of nervous system signals, leading to a range of symptoms in the muscles, cells, organs, and tissues connected to the affected nerves. Chiropractic treatment involves identifying and correcting these spinal misalignments, restoring proper nerve function and helping the body to heal itself.
Chiropractic care can provide relief from pain and symptoms by correcting spinal injuries and improving nervous system communication. The vertebral subluxation and nerve chart refers to the spinal column, the nerve supply to specific organs, and common symptoms that can result from nerve interruption. However, the effectiveness of chiropractic care can be limited by the level of arthritis in the patient. The longer an injury is present in the spine, the greater the likelihood of arthritis developing, which can affect the results of chiropractic treatment.
THERE ARE THREE MAIN PHASES OF ARHRITIS
Initial injury resulting in inflammation, pain, muscle spasms and decreased movement. If left untreated the injury will progress to phase 2.
Inflammation, increased pain, muscle spasm and decreasing movement. With this phase the patient has neglected treatment of this injury or masked the pain for 10-20 years and the disk space is decreasing and there is more interruption of the nerve supply.
This Phase is noted as severe arthritis and is total neglect where there is complete degeneration of disk and the bones fuse together. Finally at this phase there is nothing that can be done to improve health of the spinal segment.
