Frequently Asked Questions

Should I check my misaligment after recovery from my current condition?2020-10-08T23:13:16-06:00

Yes, an occasional check is advisable, as health is a maintenance program. There is always the possibility of a recurrence of the atlas misalignment, or of a new and different misaligment giving rise to a new condition with new symptoms. Further keeping a check on the functioning of the nervous system will help to maintain the body in an optimal state of wellness.

Should everyone be checked for a Atlas misalignment?2020-10-08T23:14:15-06:00

Yes. Checking the nervous system’s performance to uncover conduction blocks, and removing them, could help prevent many conditions from developing. This care is beneficial for people of all ages.

Does it always require an injury to produce a Atlas misaligment?2020-10-08T23:16:46-06:00

No. Any stress on the body from either physical, emotional, chemical or mental stress can cause you to produce the Atlas misaligment. We are subject to our environment and must continually adjust to it. Within that environment are disease-producing organisms, pollutants, poisons, and other irritants to which the body is subject and must adapt. If the body cannot adapt through the nervous system mechanisms, a spinal misalignment can be produced. Stress from emotional upsets is also a common cause of the Spinal Misalignment.

Is it possible to feel fine yet have a Atlas Misalignment interfering with my nervous system?2020-10-08T23:17:53-06:00

Yes, sensation of any kind is conveyed from the sense organs in the body to the spinal cord and brain over those nerves referred to as sensory nerves. If the Atlas misalignment decreases the ability of these sensory nerves to convey messages to the central nervous system, the patient may feel quite well, yet have a problem. This is somewhat like certain drugs given to relieve symptoms, which act by lowering or blocking the sensory input to the central nervous system.

Why is it that after an adjustment, I notice other positive changes in my body that are different than the original concern?2020-10-09T21:52:07-06:00

Many benefits accrue to the chiropractic patient other than those for which they sought chiropractic service. This is because more perfect performance of the nervous system results in:

  • Improved spinal balance through correction of the pelvic alignment.
  • Realignment of the gravity centres of the body, causing better posture.
  • Correction of spastic contracture in skeletal (body framework) muscles.
  • Equalization of leg lengths providing better body-weight distribution and protecting spinal discs.
  • Improved energy.
  • Reduced stress.
  • Improved sleep
Does the chiropractor treat every case alike?2020-10-08T23:20:59-06:00

No two Atlas misalignments are identical therefore every adjustment is different. Because the chiropractor is “treating” spinal misalignment and imperfect performance of the nervous system, the adjustment is tailored specifically to the patient. In certain cases other components of the spinal misalignments are addressed such as lifestyle, exercise or nutritional  & rest recommendations.

Why is time required to obtain results?2020-10-08T23:22:15-06:00

Most spinal misalignments have existed for years, causing harm to the nervous system and its control of the bodily functions. When the Atlas misalignment is removed by the adjustment, repair of the damage caused must take place before you can recover. Repair of tissue takes time.

How can the chiropractor determine if the patient is making progress?2020-10-08T23:23:25-06:00

Your progress is determined by the presence or absence of the objective and physical signs of the nervous system which include palpation, leg length checks, spastic contracture and spinal column distortion, comparison of the symptoms with the objective signs, and methods generally used by all doctors.

What brings about healing under adjustments?2020-10-08T23:23:53-06:00

The body has an inherent ability to heal itself if it is working normally under the control of a perfectly functioning nervous system. An example of this type of healing is the repair of a fractured bone after it has been set. The adjustment is to restore misplaced bone structures to their normal position, re-establish the normal pathways for the nerve tracts and fibers so that more perfect performance of the nervous system can take place, promoting healing.

How long will it take for me to get well under adjustments?2020-05-21T16:53:33-06:00

The length of time will depend upon how long the vertebrae (spinal bones) have been displaced, how successful the adjustment is in reducing the displacements, how much damage has been done to the nerve tracts and fibers, how well you can retain the correction made by the adjustment, how many falls, jerks, or other injuries you will have during the service period, how well you cooperate with the doctor, your vitality, and the rate of response of the nerve fibers to the adjustment.
