Question 5: Have you seen a Chiropractor to rule out Nervous System and Joint Dysfunction? 1 point for yes, 0 points for no.
Did you know?
Chiropractic adjustments reduce hyper-activation of nerve fibers bundles called the dorsal root ganglion, located in the spinal dorsal horn which are responsible for collecting and compelling nerve information from the body and sending this information to brain.  When these fibers are hyper-excited they stimulated additional nerve fibers called Wide Dynamic Range Neurons which are contributors to Chronic Pain.
How does the Chiropractic Adjustment work? Gas pressure can build up inside joint capsules and this pressure can then compress the free nerve endings inside the joint. Chiropractic helps to alleviate this pressure by opening the joint space and releasing the gas. This is what happens when you hear the typical pop or crack associated with adjustments. This is a very non-invasive and safe procedure that has been shown to improve function, improve nervous system function and reduce pain.
See for yourself! Watch how a joint manipulation reduces gas inside a joint capsule.
