So, before we get to revealing this big secret in chiropractic , we should probably talk a bit about the background of this healing discipline. Chiropractic was discovered or developed, depending on how you see things, in 1895. Yes, it is that old of a profession! Since that time, many things have come and gone in favor and technique, style and approach. The modern and more progressive styles of today’s chiropractic make many lighter touch and gentle approaches just as effective as anything that makes the old ‘cracking’ or ‘popping’ sound of classic chiropractic.
One of the things that has remained the same this whole time is the philosophy of chiropractic. That philosophy has been modified and made more accessible linguistically and metaphorically over the years, but it has remained intact. Not only that, the principles that this philosophy have embraced have stood the test of time as well. After all, they are based on some immutable universal laws. One of the core tenets of chiropractic is this: there is a universal intelligence in all matter, continuously giving to it all its properties and actions, thus maintaining it in existence, and giving this intelligence its expression. This is the ‘major premise’ of chiropractic. Can you defy that statement with any modern technology or evidence, fact or anecdote?
You noticed it didn’t even talk about back pain, right? That’s because chiropractic is not about back pain. Sure, it can help you if you have back pain, but it can also help you if you have headaches, fibromyalgia, infertility issues and it can help your children with their ear infections. A more progressive approach called Network Chiropractic has even demonstrated effects on people’s emotional and mental health and well-being. The more chiropractic is studied, the more that we learn of its far-reaching effects.
So, what’s this big secret in chiropractic?
The secret is that chiropractic isn’t about the bones! Nope, it’s about the system that is protected by your bones. The nervous system coordinates and regulates many of the essential components and activities of life in your body. This is why your central nervous system, consisting of your brain and spinal cord, is the only system in the body with its own bony protection. No other system in your body has this type of protection. Your chiropractor is concerned with how the bones of the spine are relating with your nervous system because tension in your nervous system slows the vital messages it sends to your body down.
In Arizona, Gilbert chiropractor Dr. Michael Funicello has described seeing such results with many patients in his office. There are success stories and even a video clip you can watch at infinitehealingarts.com.
