Why Chiropractic Matters

The impact
of spinal function on total body health becomes more and more understood across
laboratories, research centers, doctor’s offices, and hospitals across the
globe. Yet, many medical doctors remain unaware of the significant contribution
the spine plays on overall health and well being for all ages and genders.

Many
unwanted symptoms people experience exhibit a direct and indirect connection to
the spine.
Current medical research provides a thorough explanation
for how a Chiropractic adjustment influences many aspects of human health and
performance. The process begins with the brain. An intimate connection exists
between the health of the spine and the function of the brain. Spinal mobility
and alignment contribute to the function of nerve signals into and out of the
brain. The brain directs all function of the body and altered spinal health
leads to a change in brain function. The overall impact radiates throughout the
body.

Doctors
debated the connection between the spine, nervous system, and body function
back in the early stages of Chiropractic care in the 1920s. A medical doctor
named Henry Winsor heard that Chiropractic patients were experiencing
significant health benefits with problems seemingly unrelated to the spine. Dr.
Winsor investigated and found that many Chiropractic patients experienced
benefits beyond improved treatment for back or neck pain. Concerned and
skeptical with what he was hearing, Dr. Winsor set out to disprove the theory
in which a Chiropractic adjustment could affect any area of the body outside of
the spine. He conducted his own research.

Dr. Winsor
dissected the spines of cadavers with the intent to prove no correlation
between the health of the spine and organ disease. He received permission and
access to dissect and analyze the spines of 50 human cadavers. Not only did Dr.
Winsor find a link between the health of the spine and the function of organs, he
noted a direct correlation between diseased organs and the alignment of their
spine in specific areas.
He found links between a curvature of the spine in
the area of the nervous system which controlled that specifically diseased
organ. Diseased organs drew conclusive connection to misalignments in the spine
which would have altered function in the nervous system supplying communication
to that organ. These findings were revolutionary in understanding why so many
patients experienced health benefits and improved health in specific organs
after beginning Chiropractic care. A 100% correlation occurred between the
abnormal alignment and condition of a specific area of the spine and the
nervous system, which supplied the corresponding organ.

The same doctor who set out to debunk the truth about Chiropractic and its influence on organ function proved the opposite conclusion. Chiropractic helps family members of all ages experience greater function and a higher quality of life without the use of drugs or surgery. This study continues to play an important role in helping explain the necessity of Chiropractic care for all family members. Better health involves Chiropractic care.

dissected cadavers, of visceral disease with the vertebral deformities of the
same sympathetic segments” H. Winsor
