Scientific Medical Journal Reports on Nerve Pressure

Spine Magazine, a well-respected medical journal, published a study from Texas Woman s University in their January 15, 1999, issue. The report appears to verify what chiropractors have been saying for over 100 years. Although the study was complex, researchers tested something known as the "H-Reflex" to measure the effect of pressure on spinal nerves. What they found was that pressure on spinal nerves, (Chiropractors have referred to this as SUBLUXATION), causes measurable changes in the H-reflex. This shows a change in nerve function due to pressure on nerves.

Although this study is good, it only serves to verify prior chiropractic research on subluxation. In two separate studies, it was shown that as little as 10 to 45 millimeters of mercury pressure, (the weight of a coin on your hand), placed on the nerve root was enough to change the nerve impulses by 40 to 60 percent in minutes. This kind of research is good, but it only serves to verify what chiropractic patients have known for over 100 years. Chiropractic Works!

Our chiropractic office educates our patients in lifestyle changes that compliment their spinal care. Chiropractic spinal adjustments strengthen areas of the spine and restore impaired nerve flow. Subluxations occur when vertebra misalign irritating delicate spinal nerves. Spinal adjustments remove the nerve pressure and restore function to the body. Chiropractic spinal adjustments by our chiropractors help you live your life to its fullest through a properly functioning nervous system. When your nervous system is functioning properly you express life to your fullest. Chiropractic spinal adjustments enable you to express your God given health potential and to live your life to fullest capabilities. Neck pain, back pain, sciatica, reduced immunity, ear infections, decreased energy, stomach disorders, asthma, allergies, sinus problems, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder problems, sports injuries, spinal disc degeneration, osteoarthritis, numbness, pain, are just some of the signs of improper function in the body and conditions that benefit from Chiropractic spinal adjustments. Don't delay and wait for a spinal problem to develop before you seek out Chiropractic care. Get a Chiropractic spinal adjustment and deal with the cause of your problems rather than masking it with medications which often deal just with the symptoms. Whether you are feel great and want to ensure a healthy and fully functional future or if you are in pain and seek the safe and effective proven results of Chiropractic spinal adjustments, you owe it to yourself to have a spinal check up and to start down the healthy road of lifetime Chiropractic care.
