Health and Other Wonders in Chiropractor Clinics

What is the relevance of chiropractors to our lives? The physical body is a wonderful piece of creation. There are things about the body that cannot be understood by modern science, even until now. Take the skin, for example. There are a lot of pores through which essential and waste matter pass such as sweat and moisturising oil but pressure from surrounding water when you dip in a pool or the sea cannot penetrate the delicate human skin as if we have numerous “valves” that prevent inward flow.

Wonders such as that of skin permeability cannot compare with the greater wonders of the internal organs such the heart, kidney and liver. They are vital organs charged with vital functions that are clearly understood by medical practitioners and scientists. In fact, modern medicine has made incredible successes such as heart and kidney transplants making life extension possible. But even until now, the mighty conquerors of the earth through their great scientists, have not yet been able to “manufacture” replacements of these vital organs so that there will be no more need for donors whose lives are potentially imperilled by giving up one of the kidneys, for instance. Donated heart is even more difficult to acquire.

If man successfully assembles synthetic replacements to these vital organs from available raw materials, the average longevity of man on earth would have been greatly increased. The other body parts would have been small potatoes and would easily come next, making it possible for the vain to look eternally young. And men and women on earth would “live happily ever after.”

The happy scenario we have painted in the previous paragraph is just like a fairy tale, just plain wishful thinking. Until now, it is an absolute impossibility. Humans still suffer ailments that cannot easily be treated such as scoliosis, osteoporosis, back pains, aching stiff necks, etc. This is where chiropractors become very helpful.

Chiropractors generally believe that many health problems stem from dislocations or displacements of the structural harmony of the bones, muscles and nerves affecting the normal functions of the various body parts especially the internal organs, even including the brain. Patients suffering from ailments involving this kind of disharmony lose the normal innate intelligence of the body. Chiropractic patients are greatly relieved after treatment and therapy sessions with good chiropractors involving adjustments in the positional relations of the skeletal, muscular and nervous systems, particularly on the spine. A prescription lifestyle may also be part of the treatment package.

Back pains, stiff necks and chronic aching of the neck and shoulders are very bothering. It is impossible to normally function with such nagging pain. It could be symptoms of more deeply seated ailments probably associated with vertebral subluxation – an area of expertise of the chiropractor.
