What are we?

We only get one set of them.

We rarely clean them.

We use them every day.

They protect us from harm.

They help us to run.

Humming Birds help to clean them.

They help us to swim.

We help them when we sleep.

We need them to grow tall.

We need them to pick things off the floor.

People with bad ones get dizzy.

When we mis-shape, your legs hurt.

We’re made up of bone, cartilage, ligaments, joints, and fibrous tissues.

What are we?

Your Spine

We are your spine. Your spine houses your spinal cord. The spinal cord transports messages from your brain out the nerves and back to the brain from each side of your vertebra. Those nerves control everything in your body. Nerves exit through openings between each of the  bones in you spine and control the sensory and motor function where those nerves go to. If your spine is misaligned, these bones put pressure on the nerves, causing the messages to not get through properly.

Chiropractors

Chiropractic is a healthcare field which utilizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.

The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the spine and how it affects the preservation and restoration of health, by adjusting vertebra in the spine to relieve interference in the nervous system.

For 117 years chiropractors have been adjusting the spine to clear interference with the nervous system. As science catches up to the chiropractic adjustment, the scientific world is beginning to validate what chiropractors have been saying for over a century.

Health Care versus Pain Care

In the quest of health, chiropractors move bones in your spine to maximize function. When function is maximized and the body can express 100% of its internal intelligence, health is the result. Health is the expression of your body working correctly, reacting properly to outside stimulus, and adapting to the changes in its environment. This sounds very simple but the human body is the most complex biological unit on the earth.

Nervous System

At the core of our complexity is the central nervous system made up of the brain and spinal cord, the command and control center of the body. Surrounding the spinal cord is 24 vertebra that make up a majority of the spine. In the normal human spine there are 7 cervical vertebra & 6 cervical discs, 12 thoracic vertebra & disks, 5 lumbar vertebra & discs. This structure is meant to protect and facilitate mobility for the command and control of the body, so the nerves can control all functions in the body without interference.

Injured Spine

When a portion of this spine is injured, degeneration begins unless it’s corrected and strengthened. Misaligned vertebra with soft tissue injury follow a steady path of degeneration that eventually leads to unrelenting constant pain, but there are many warning signs that get ignored. Warning signs can be as little as occasional stiffness, intermittent pain, swelling, or twitches, to more aggressive things such as weakness, more frequent pain, dysfunction of the tissue that the nerve goes to, neuralgia, etc.. If you’re taking pain relievers to dull the PAIN, you’re turning off your warning system that the body has in place to tell you SOMETHING IS WRONG.

Pain Killers

How many times a week do you take a pain killer?  a month? a year? or many years? Would you ever consider putting a band aid on an unusually dark skin blemish to cover it up for a week? a month? a year? or many years? Covering something up doesn’t deal with the problem, it just kicks the can down the road to deal with it when it’s bigger and meaner.

Natural Healthcare

Through Chiropractic care you can help maintain a healthier spine and promote overall body health, because life begins with the nervous system and ends with the nervous system.

Prescription Drug Related Deaths On The Rise

When I was a teen in the mid 80’s, M.A.D.D. (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) came onto the seen when deaths related to drinking and driving were around 26,173 per year.

Prescription drugs taken as prescribed in hospitals are the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S and Canada, after cancer, heart disease and strokes. They cause about 10,000 deaths a year in Canada and about 106,000 deaths a year and over two million serious injuries in the U.S. (Source: Lazarou et al JAMA Vol. 279 No. 15 pp.1200-1205 Incidence of Adverse Drug Reactions in Hospitalized Patients) http://theconference.ca/facts-on-prescription-drug-deaths-and-the-drug-industry  When I hear these statistics it makes me wonder, “where’s Mothers Against Drug Deaths and a fanfare of publicity and legislation to curb the  unnecessary deaths due to medical errors?”

(2000-2010 – death and serious patient outcomes from FDA approved drugs) “These data describe the outcome of the patient as defined in U.S. reporting regulations (21 CFR 310.305, 314.80, 314.98, 600.80) and Forms FDA 3500 and 3500A (the MedWatch forms). Serious means that one or more of the following outcomes were documented in the report: death, hospitalization, life-threatening, disability, congenital anomaly and/or other serious outcome. Documenting one or more of these outcomes in a report does not necessarily mean that the suspect product(s) named in the report was the cause of these outcomes.” – http://www.drugwarfacts.org/cms/Causes_of_Death

Editor’s Note: These data show “deaths” totaling 452,780 and “serious outcomes” equaling 2,816,297 occurred during the eleven years from 2000 to 2010 as tabulated from the FDA’s Adverse Event Reporting System for prescription drugs.

Comparing the five years (2001-2005) with the five years (2006-2010) finds that the number of deaths grew by +66.7% for the second time frame as compared to first. For the same comparative spans, serious patient outcomes leaped by almost three quarters (+77.5%).

How many people die of prescription drug related deaths each year?

How_many_people_die_of_prescription_drug_related_deaths_each_year – 783,936 people in the United States die every year from conventional medicine mistakes.

(2003 medical report Death by Medicine, by Drs. Gary Null, Carolyn Dean, Martin Feldman, Debora Rasio and Dorothy Smith)

Very little is spent to alert the people of the US about the hazards of prescription medication. By 2014, the global market for pharmaceuticals is expected to reach $1.1 trillion.  US Pharmaceutical Launches: Marketing Spend and Structure reveals that the average blockbuster brand in the U.S. allots 49% of its budget to fulfill advertising needs.

That’s BILLIONS in dollars to spend in marketing and LOBBYING for tweaking the system to maximize profits for Big Pharma’s employees and shareholders at the expense of 83,000 lives a year.

  • Direct advertising to doctors: Big Pharma spends more than $20 billion a year promoting their products to American physicians.
  • The distribution of free drug samples: the United States has 81,000 pharmaceutical representatives or 1 for every 7.9 physicians.
  • And the sponsorship of symposiums and medical conventions by the drug companies: drug and medical-device makers spend $2 billion every year for more than 300,000 medical seminars and “training opportunities”, often in sun-splashed, exotic locations.
