The human skeletal system is put together so efficiently that even a slight shift in any of its bones will cause pressure on the surrounding nerves. This is chiefly accurate for the spinal column, which is fundamentally a shielded, bone-tube for nervous tissues. When nerves are under pressure, they react by causing surrounding tissues to become inflamed, which produces excess of the hormone cortisol, known as the “stress hormone.” When too much cortisol accumulates in one area of the body for extensive periods, painful sensations and other unbearable symptoms result.
These irritating nerve symptoms affect the entire body because nerves are threaded throughout the body’s whole. When the body’s systems are in equilibrium or homeostasis, a state of vital health is the result. Irritated nerves upset homeostasis and thus throw the body out balance, making the baseline state of health more difficult to maintain.
The absolute assertion of chiropractic therapy based upon the ideology that when bones are dislocated from their natural positions, specifically those in the spine, they push against nerves and cause pain throughout the body. If the bones are adjusted back to their normal resting places, the pain is relieved.
In chiropractic-speak, these bone dispositionings are called subluxations, when applied to the vertebrae of the spine; a vertebrae is considered to be luxated if its joint surfaces are completely separated, and subluxated when partially separated. While the exact mechanism that makes nerves irritated by displaced bones throw the body out of its natural homeostatic balance remains unverified, the techniques of manual adjustment that chiropractors undertake have been shown in multiple studies to be effective in tackling all kinds of pains associated with the musculoskeletal system and other medical conditions.
Since chiropractic treatment works so closely with the human central nervous system, it is theorized that it could play a role in treating diseases beyond the musculoskeletal system. Recurrent disorders like allergies, high blood pressure, and fibromyalgia have also been proved to respond favorably at times to chiropractic treatment.
The idea is that a chiropractic adjustment, especially spinal manipulative therapy, affects the central nervous system at its root level, which may be the mechanism that keeps the body in a homeostatic balance of good health. There are any number of things a chiropractic adjustment may be able to help. Call or visit Premier Medical Group to consult a chiropractor near Pearland.
