Most definitely the biggest misconception about chiropractic revolves around ‘the adjustment’. I think the adjustment is pretty amazing, let me tell you why.
The underlying cause of many health problems stem from nervous system disturbances along the spine. This most often shows up as one or more spinal bones that are stuck and not moving correctly. So, an adjustment must put those wayward bones back into their proper position, right? Not so!
Actually, bones are static structures. They move when acted upon by a muscle. And your muscles only contract when commanded by your nervous system. So chiropractic – even the adjustment – are about the quality of your nervous system!
Your body does the healing. The energy that I supply with the adjustment just helps things along. Repeated visits will help to retrain your muscles which will then allow your body to ‘right’ itself! Cool, don’t you think?
