What do Chiropractors Do?
The key job of chiropractors is to remove subluxations in the spine which are blockages from spinal misalignments by vertebrae to the spinal nerves which interfere with your body’s ability to function normally and heal itself like it would normally do without those interferences. Chiropractor are the only profession specifically trained to remove vertebral subluxations.
When a chiropractor realigns the spine and returns the bones back to their proper position the body does what it normally does and heals itself. These adjustments are usually accompanied by audible sounds which people often referred to as a “crack”. This often gives some immediate relief to the patients and in some cases shocks the patient that might think this is abnormal. It is basically the same noise you hear when you “crack your knuckles” and is caused by a release of carbon dioxide gas in the joint. Sometimes this isn’t heard due to the patient being tense or having muscular spasms in that region. Occasionally this causes some minor discomfort which is usually very temporary but the bottom line is the body is on it’s way back to proper health with the nerves functioning better and getting the “power turned back on”!
In chiropractic the vertebral subluxation complex is the term used for this problem and there are 5 components to this and they are:
- Kinesiopathology (the bone component) – the loss of normal positioning and motion of the bone in relation to neighboring vertebrae.
- Myopathology (the muscular component)– pathological changes occurring in the musculature which are necessary for the spine to function appropriately.
- Neuropathology (the nerve component) – irritation or injury to nerve roots by compression, or stretching of the surrounding structures which can cause muscular spasm.
- Histopathology (the soft tissue component)– pathological changes which occur to the spinal tissues such as abnormal bony growths off the vertebral bodies and joints, fibrosis and adhesions of spinal muscles and ligaments, as well as dehydration and degeneration of spinal discs
- Pathophysiology (the chemical component) – the chemical changes in the spinal region which can be in the form of inflammatory biochemicals from injured tissues and biochemical waste products.
