Neck Adjusting, the most powerful and safest treatment known to modern medicine, when done correctly.
After decades of treating patients I’ve discovered that the oldest form of Chiropractic treatment/adjusting, is the best. I feel bad for so many patients going to a chiropractor when they are not receiving chiropractic treatment. These days it seems to consist of getting some tape pasted onto your muscles.
Medical doctors and the news tells you if you go to a chiropractor just don’t let them adjust your neck. For a long time now, students are taught not to do it anymore. It takes many years of training and then decades more to get good at it. Few of my colleagues can adjust my neck well. The ones that can I love dearly and go to them often. So many chiropractors don’t even attempt it because it is not as easy as it looks on an Instagram video. It is probably impossible for the average consumer to know what they are going to get when they walk into a chiropractors office for the first time. I always joke, if you went to 80 different doctors, you would get 80 different treatments. So why is getting a good neck adjustment so important?
We all know that our brain powers our bodies. But what powers our brains? Hint, our brain needs constant stimulus to work properly. There is only one constant stimulus on earth. It’s gravity. We have eyes that can transduce electromagnetic radiation into ones and zeros and we can see our world. We have ears that can transduce sound wave energy into ones and zeros and we can hear our world.
What you were never told about is that we have gravity receptors that transduce the force of earth’s gravitational field. The most amount of these very powerful receptors that power our brain is in the upper neck joints. Why just how many more I hear you asking? 250 times more in the upper two neck joints than anywhere else in your body.
What does that mean for you? It means that I have a 250 times better probability of changing your brain for the better when I adjust those joints, which I always do, whether you are complaining about a neck pain or not. The old time chiropractors never even adjusted a low back. They worked only on those two upper joints because they guessed right. They had no idea what they were doing or why back in 1895, but they knew that it worked. Many low back pain patients were fixed with only adjusting their neck. With modern technology we now understand why. While on the subject and not to confuse the maybe 5 people that may argue with me, upper cervical adjusting can be done a few different ways, even though the term upper cervical adjusting usually refers to a special table where you lie on your side. I like my way of doing it much better than that one.
Why would the news scare you to death over this amazing treatment? My guess is their sponsors need you to be very sick because they have a lot of drugs that they want to sell you. When you’re healthy you don’t think about buying drugs. You have a much better chance of being healthy when your central nervous system is working optimally. I say that based on the science that has discovered that the upper cervical joints have 250 times more mechanoreceptor nerve endings. Lucky for you not only do I understand this, I’m rather good at moving those joints that many practitioners are so afraid to go visit.
Editors note: My claim at the very top that it is the safest treatment know to modern medicine is because iatrogenic disease is the 3rd leading cause of death in America. That is death created by a poor choice of doctor. That means a medical doctor or the practice of medicine is the 3rd leading cause of death in America. Over 100,000 people die just from taking their prescriptions the way they were prescribed. The average doctors malpractice insurance is over $100,000 a year. My malpractice insurance is about $1200 a year. The insurance companies know who is hurting who.
I can promise you this, I’ve never killed anyone. My entire life is dedicated to chiropractic. I have met thousands of chiropractors. Not one of them has ever killed anyone. You might want to step out of the box and quit watching the news on the box and give yourself and your brain a chance to work properly again.
Keep in mind that 90% of those nerve signals leaving those mechanoreceptors are going to the subconscious part of your brain, the cerebellum, and most of them never get up to your conscious level, which is a very good thing for your sanity. On the other hand, you can’t be aware of just how powerful that upper cervical neck adjustment was.
In spite of that fact, I always enjoy that look of amazement on my patients face after I adjust their neck. Sadly, they didn’t even realize how poorly they were functioning. Their neck is not even the reason why they called me. That is one reason why I treat patients like a human being, not a low back pain or whatever it is they are experiencing. I’ve taken just about every chiropractic technique course taught on weekends. I’ve used all those methods. The new way I practice is the old way because it produces the greatest results. That is because our physiology has not changed in millions of years of evolution. Somehow, the original chiropractor guessed right and figured out a way to utilize our natural physiology to get people well. If you had all those special nerve endings in your nose, I’d be cracking that.
