Do You Believe In Gravity?

Ok, so the name of this article is a bit tongue in cheek but one thing I hear a lot is that people believe in chiropractic.  I always say “well that’s good because chiropractic is based entirely off biomechanical principles such as gravity.”


The reason I say this is that for years chiropractic was written off as silly or something you only did if you were out of options in the medical health field.  This was done intentionally by the medical establishment (seriously, you can look it up. The AMA lost a defamation case in federal court). The truth is that chiropractic care works because your body follows the same principles as other physical objects.  If you apply a stress to it, it reacts accordingly.  There is nothing magical or supernatural about getting a joint moving and pain receding.  It’s the natural order of things.


Chiropractic works by restoring natural movement in the spine, muscles and soft tissues.


The human spine is a beautiful and elegant design, using a J-S curve to distribute pressure as evenly as possible and thus reducing wear and tear on the body. When the natural movement of the spine is hindered via injury to muscle, bone or other soft tissue pain and dysfunction is the natural result. That is the reason chiropractic care is so effective for problems originating in the spine, muscle or soft tissues.


Another important this to be aware of is that as you use your body small imbalances build up over time. These can be caused by postural issues, minor or major injuries or repetitive stresses such as sitting, typing, driving or any other activity done over and over again over a long period of time.


That is the reason regular chiropractic check ups are essential for maintaining optimal function of the spine.
