What Happens When You Receive a Chiropractic Adjustment?
The chiropractic adjustment or correction is a procedure performed by your chiropractor using his/her hands or a special instrument. The purpose of this procedure is to correct a condition or abnormality that is called a subluxation.
A subluxation is an unhealthy state of your body reflected in your spine, structural system, muscles and nerves. Some people refer to the subluxation as a blockage, others as interference, others as stagnation of energy.
Subluxations may be caused by physical, emotional and toxic stress. They are very common and are found in every age group. They may be found in newborns due to birth trauma, in children (from falls and accidents), and in fact, in anyone who lives on a planet with gravity (that means all of us).
Because of the many things that can cause a subluxation, the moment your subluxations are corrected (adjusted or released), hundreds, if not thousands, of body functions and activities may be affected.
At the moment of the adjustment, trapped physical, emotional and toxic stress is released. Imbalanced energies and nerve impulses in your brain, spinal cord, cranial nerves and spinal nerves begin to flow in a more balanced manner. Millions and even billions of nerves and body parts begin to re-establish new patterns of function. In addition, your muscles, ligaments, tendons and discs begin rebalancing; your internal organs are now functioning closer to ideal.
Because of an adjustment your entire body has more energy to rebalance, renew and rebuild. Now you know why chiropractic care has become the most popular drug-free, non-surgical health care profession in the world—because of the power of the chiropractic adjustment that corrects subluxations.
Questions and Answers About Chiropractic
Q. Why stay subluxation-free?
A. The chiropractic profession that was founded by Dr. DD Palmer in 1895 is based on the fact that internal structural distortions called subluxations can cause serious health problems.
Subluxations stress your nervous system and interfere with communication among your organs, glands, muscles and other body parts – including your brain and your immune system.
Subluxations can be caused by any trauma: difficult birth, falls, accidents, emotional upset, chemical toxicity, overwork or a combination of factors (i.e. physical, chemical or emotional stress while you are tired, overworked, malnourished, etc.).
People sometimes ask how chiropractic can improve their health. The answers depend on whom you ask. For example, a woman now free of monthly pain may say, “Chiropractic is for menstrual problems.” A pregnant woman may say, “Chiropractic is for a comfortable pregnancy.” A mother whose child was helped may say, “Chiropractic is for ear infections (or fevers or asthma or colic).” A teacher may say, “Chiropractic is for dyslexia, vision and learning disorders.” Another person may say “Chiropractic is for headaches,” while still others may declare chiropractic is for back aches, hearing problems, disc problems, arthritis, high or low blood pressure or a host of other problems.
Others use chiropractic as a way to maximize sports performance, improve overall health, and enhance balance, strength and fitness.
In addition to all of the above, chiropractic can help everyone live a drug-free, healthy lifestyle.
Subluxations are epidemic in our society; most people have subluxations and don’t know it. For that reason, everyone needs periodic chiropractic checkups.
… Just the Essentials
The power of Lavender Oil
Let’s dig deep into Lavender Essential Oil! Lavender is one of those oils that can be used for many different reasons. Learning about each healing property it has makes this incredible oil more usable. Versatility is one of the many reasons essential oils are so helpful and important to keep in your life and home.
Lavender, despite its sweet floral aroma, is actually a part of the mint family. If you're going to use lavender in a blend the possibilities are almost endless! It being in the mint family, while also possessing floral notes, opens up a lot of great blending options between any minty essential oil or any floral like geranium and clary sage. The sweet scent of lavender blends really well with mant citrus oils as well!
So how long has lavender essential oil been used? Lavender oil dates all the way back to medieval times for its aromatic presence. Many would use it as a perfume and unknowingly benefit from its many healing properties. It is known to balance the body, supporting the body on a cellular level wherever there is an imbalance or need. The list of properties lavender contains is very long; the most well known are antidepressant, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, regenerative, sedative antihistamine and antiseptic.
One of the best things about lavender is how easy it is to use. It is one of the few essential oils that can be applied directly to the skin, also known as neat. This means it is 100% safe to apply to the skin without a carrier oil. Using lavender essential oil supports many different systems of the body, specifically, the cardiovascular system, the nervous system, the skin and the emotional body.
Essential oils of all kinds affect more than just the physical body, they impact the emotional body as well. Lavender is a strong tool in supporting the emotional body. The aroma works with the brain and promotes many high vibrational emotions like love, peace and health.
Cholesterol is good for you! Lowering cholesterol with drugs doubles your risk of dementia, and increases your risk of cancer, heart disease and death from Covid.
Some of the most popular (and profitable) drugs on the market are cholesterol lowering drugs known as statins such as Lipitor™, Crestor™, Zocor™, Mevacor™ and others.
Statins are supposed to protect against heart disease, but they don’t do that. Instead they double the risk of dementia.
Those taking statins had significantly higher mortality rates from Covid-19 compared to those not taking the drugs. (1)
Did You Know?
You need your tonsils
With every breath you take and every mouthful of food you eat millions and millions of microscopic life forms enter your body. These germs, bugs, fungus, spores and the rest love you because you can supply them with lots of food, water, quiet, darkness and a constant temperature.
Your main barrier to preventing all those tiny life forms from entering you is your skin; but when you breathe and eat that armor is bypassed. What’s a body to do? Easy. Set up guardians with forts and lots of weapons. These are your tonsils.
You have two tonsils at the back of your mouth on either side of your throat, one behind your tongue and another by your nose. Tonsils are filled with cells that can attack and eat any germs before they can do any harm. Tonsils also create antibodies that are specialized structures that destroy microorganisms before they can do any damage.
Chiropractic clinical case histories have been a regular feature of our patient newsletter since its inception. There seem to be no limit to the health problems that respond to chiropractic care. How many people suffering, on drugs, facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care?
Probably most of them.
Shoulder problems in two patients. A 45-year-old woman and a 47-year-old man had complaints of shoulder pain and restriction. Both reported falls and accidents two months prior. Over-the-counter medication and physical therapy were ineffective.
Both patients received upper cervical (upper neck) chiropractic adjustments. Significant improvements in shoulder range of motion and decreased pain occurred in both patients. (2)
Vertigo, hearing and quality of life. A fifty-one-year-old woman was diagnosed with Chiari malformation (CM), a structural defect where the brainstem is below its typical/normal position. CM can cause headaches, difficulty swallowing, vomiting, dizziness, neck pain, unsteady gait, poor hand coordination, numbness and tingling of the hands and feet as well as speech problems.
This woman suffered from Meniere’s disease, migraine, concussion, whiplash, upper cervical subluxation and TMJ dysfunction.
She had previously received skull and neck surgery to address her symptoms. She experienced only temporary relief.
She began chiropractic care. At a two-year follow up she reported that her vertigo number went from 10 to 1 (occasional imbalance but no dizziness) and her hearing was restored. Her tinnitus was replaced by an occasional humming sound. She reports she has her confidence back, can drive and shop again and her sleep has improved. (3)
Breastfeeding difficulties. A 9-day-old girl with a history of birth trauma was brought in for chiropractic care. Her mother reported that her daughter had breastfeeding difficulties and failure to gain weight. Breastfeeding was so painful that a lactation consultant recommended a nipple shield.
The child had chiropractic adjustment to her atlas (C-1 vertebrae) and sacrum along with cranial care. She had four visits in two weeks and after each visit the mother reported more comfortable breastfeeding and an increase in weight gain. (4)
Chest pain, headaches and lower back pain
When I met Dr. Horning three months ago, I had the following ailments: constant chest pain, headaches two to three times a week and lower back pain from degenerative disk disease. Dr. Horning was surprised because I’m only 27 years old with all of these problems. I went to my family medical doctor for the past five years to help and every time they said it was stress and that there was no way to fix my back so I should take painkillers.
Dr. Horning was much different. He evaluated my entire body and took x-rays of key areas in my back and neck. He said that he could help me and he did. Within three weeks and just seven visits, I no longer have chest pain or lower back pain and haven’t had a headache in two weeks straight.
I believe in Dr. Horning and chiropractic care. I feel great and feel like I should at 27.
Thank you for all your help and continued support.
