Chiropractic: the name of the profession, discovered by Daniel David Palmer (D.D. Palmer) September 18, 1895. The word was coined by Reverend Samuel Weed and it means "done by hand"
Subluxation: refers to the condition that exists within the spinal nerve system of the body in which there is a misalignment of a vertebrae(backbone) while pressure is exerted on nerve tissue creating interference to the transmission of mental impulses from brain cell to body cell. We say this interferes with your expression of life and reduces your human potential for health, and vitality.
Subluxations rob the body of the ability to think
Subluxations (2nd definition) derived from the roots "sub" "lux", "ation" Sub is less than, Lux is an international unit of light, and Ation refers to a nation of something. So this definition says there is less light in the nation of cells of our body. Cool !
Chiropractic Adjustment: refers to the "Art" of Chiropractic. An adjustment is an application of force applied on the body over a spinal vertebrae, using part of the vertebrae as a lever to alter the position of the bone.
Adjustments act as a catalyst to enhance your body's inborn healing ability
Adjustments release warm streams of healing energy that will last for hours and hours
Adjustments are specific applications of force intended to reduce or eliminate subluxations
The function of the force of the adjustment is to unite the intelligence of your body with the matter of your body. WOW!
