Cause and Effect
For every effect we must have a cause. This is just a fundamental law of Physics that is true 100% of the time. In other words; if you walk outside and see a ball rolling down the street something caused that ball to move. Maybe it was a little boy kicking it. If I eat raw chicken and I get sick, the sickness is the effect and it was the raw chicken that was the cause. I think you get the idea…
What Does That Mean For Me
So, if a person is in pain, has achy joints, has the flu, or is just ill then the condition, regardless of the name applied to it, is in fact an effect for which there must be a cause. The Chiropractic premise is that the cause of dysfunction is due to a vertebral misalignment which produces physical irritation upon nerves called subluxations. These subluxations interfere with the body’s ability to heal itself. So, for example, you have back pain (the effect) the vertebral misalignment (subluxation) is the cause.
How Can Chiropractic Help?
As you know Chiropractors correct subluxations. To me that makes sense. But is this the norm when helping someone with back pain or illness? No, the norm in our society is to take pills to cover up the symptom (the effect). So, if you use that premise, then the cause of the pain or illness was due to a lack of Tylenol or Motrin in your body. To me that doesn’t make sense.
So, always ask questions and challenge the norm. Your health may be better off…Just something to think about.
