The Doctor of Chiropractic is a specialist in spinal disorders. He is expertly trained to diagnose and treat the many injuries that may occur with trauma or in your everyday life.
Lindell Chiropractic is a leading Corpus Christi Chiropractor.
Upon injury, the individual often alters the normal position or flexibility of the spinal vertebrae. Chiropractic treatment is designed to restore normal alignment and reduce nerve pressure on delicate nerves, thus minimizing pain and suffering and resoring function. Gentle “adjustments” are effective in rapidly returning the injured person to a productive status. The Doctor of Chiropractic can also provide guidance with advice designed to reduce work-related injuries, proper lifting procedures, and therapeutic stretching exercises.
What are Subluxations?
In simplest terms, a subluxation (a.k.a. Vertebral Subluxation) occurs when one or more of the bones of your spine (vertebrae) move out of position and creates pressure on, or irritates spinal nerves.
Spinal nerves are the nerves that come out from between each pair of bones in your spine. This pressure or irritation on the nerves can cause those nerves to malfunction and interfere with the signals traveling over those nerves.The purpose of the nervous system is to control and coordinate the function of every system, organ, tissue and cell in the body, thus maintaining a 100% state of health and wellbeing. The nervous system is responsible for sending messages to and from your brain, keeping communication open between the “boss” (your brain) and all of the workers (your body and its systems). A subluxation can alter or prevent the flow of impulses from the brain to the rest of your body. Over a period of time, vertebral subluxation can cause “dis-ease,” or lack of health because it prevents your body and its various systems (nervous, respiratory, circulatory, digestive, immune, etc.) from performing at their highest potential.
A subluxation is a stress response. Muscles go into spasm. Spinal bones lock up and get stuck. Adjacent nerves are choked or impinged upon thus becomming disturbed. This interferes with the control and regulation of your body. This garbles communications between the brain and parts of your body.Disturbed nerve function is an underlying cause of many health problems beyond headaches and back pain.
Chiropractors correct these mis-alignments or Vertebral Subluxations by delivering a safe, gentle and specific force known as a chiropractic adjustment.
