Our body’s movement system is a complex interaction of nervous system, muscular system and skeletal system. Chiropractic adjustments are the manual, hands-on treatments expertly applied to correct imbalances in the nervous and movement system. Particularly applied at the spine but also in different parts of the body, its objectives are to alter brain function and thereby correct your body’s alignment, relieve pain and improve your overall movement.
Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest, drug-free and non-invasive therapy methods. Depending on the nature of the problem, the frequency and quantity of treatments will vary. Chiropractic care treat problems in people of all ages. Depending on the patient, the intensity and force of treatments vary.
Today most dysfunctions are caused by chronic stress, such as constant sitting or excessive mental stress, which change how the brain works and how well it can coordinate and manage your body. Pain and symptoms are the response to chronic stress in the nervous system.
Modern research has shown that spinal realignment has the strongest impact in altering brain function. The spine is like the "antenna to the brain" and through adjustments to specific areas of the spine, we can send input bursts into the brain to declutter areas that are dysfunctional. This is the base for healing in the body, since the body's superordinate control center, the brain, can again communicate with all cells without interference.
So, chiropractic is the master tool to create neuroplasticity and a healthy nervous and movement system.
Dry needling is also called trigger point dry needling or myofascial trigger point dry needling. This treatment is an invasive procedure where a fine acupuncture needle is inserted into the skin and muscle. It is aimed at myofascial trigger points which are hyperirritable spots in skeletal muscle. Trigger point dry needling can be carried out at superficial or deep tissue level.
The objectives of Dry Needling are to resolve muscle contractions as well as fascia adhesions, which may be contributing factors to musculoskeletal and myofascial pain syndromes. It is thought that dry needling changes the way the brain and muscles talk to each other to let the system return to a more normal movement pattern.
A patient may experience different sensations when being needled, muscle soreness, aching and a muscle twitch when a needle is inserted is considered to be a good sign. Dry needling is also used to increase range of motion that may be limited due to muscle tightness or scar tissue.
The writings of Hippocrates (460-370 B.C.), Galen (130-200 A.D.), and even ancient manuscripts of the Egyptians, Hindus, and Chinese reveal some principles common to chiropractic. Its place in modern health care is largely attributed to Dr. Daniel David Palmer, who founded the first chiropractic college in Davenport, Iowa, in 1895.
In the late 1800s, Dr. D.D. Palmer was a healer and a teacher trying to understand the cause and effect of disease. His first chiropractic adjustment was performed in 1895 on a man who was deaf. The loss of hearing was associated with his back "giving out" while working several years prior to meeting up with Dr. Palmer. Dr. Palmer was able to restore his hearing by realigning the man's spine. The second such adjustment provided relief for another patient who was suffering from heart trouble. Dr. Palmer theorized that "if two diseases, so dissimilar as deafness and heart trouble, came from impingement, a pressure on nerves, were not other diseases due to a similar cause?"
He began developing his adjustment techniques and was soon getting results with many different conditions, from colic to ear infections to headaches. Because of its success in healing, the new profession grew quickly. The son of D.D. Palmer, B.J. Palmer also spent most of his life studying and promoting chiropractic and became the “Developer” of chiropractic care. BJ Palmer is known for his quotes and sayings regarding universal intelligence, innate and the philosophy of chiropractic.
“The power that made the body, heals the body.
It happens no other way.”
"When the right adjustment is made, innate goes to work.
You feel the results when dis-ease turns to ease."
