5 Facts You Did Not Know About Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic treatment as a form of healing has been around for quite some time now. What amazes us more is its rising popularity. We can no longer ignore the immense contribution of chiropractic to the health sector. Many years back, chiropractic was not even legally recognized. At present, we have numerous associations and commissions representing chiropractic. In the developing world, people tend to forget about history. History of people’s culture, as well as the historical background of treatment, is very essential. We can use history to track the effectiveness of treatment. In light of this, we must applaud chiropractic doctors for keeping the art alive.

Now more than ever, we must sit back and evaluate the significance of chiropractors. This will help up get a better understanding of its working. How much do you know about chiropractic treatments? Are you familiar with all the facts related to chiropractic treatment? In a world run by lies and orchestrated by propaganda, only facts can save us and preserve what is best for humanity. Chiropractic could be facing some serious conspiracies. This is perhaps one of the reasons for our article today. To equip you with some facts you probably do not know about chiropractic treatment.

  1. Female Doctors of Chiropractic are as good as the male

We often imagine that a masculine figure is better placed to offer spinal manipulations. It is true that to some extent, a chiropractic treatment might pose physical demands. The adjustment in some cases may need a lot of thrusts. For this reason, most of us usually conclude that female chiropractors are not properly suited. Why? Simply because we think they may not have the required thrust power.

Quite to the contrary, though, female chiropractors are just as good as the male. A study conducted by the University of Victoria researchers proves what am trying to say. 14 female chiropractic doctors were pitted against 14 male chiropractic doctors. From this research, we find that female doctor of chiropractic were just as effective as the male in administering chiropractic treatment.

  1. Chiropractic treatment as a treatment option is acceptable by all cultures

It is no big secret that some religious organizations prohibit medical treatment particularly the one given in hospitals. The reasoning of these groups is that medicine contains chemicals and chemical are foreign and bad for their bodies. In light of this, such groups do not use sugar, salt or any other processed or manufactured products. Theology aside, there is one common concept that I agree with them on. To believe that the body has the power to heal itself.

Chiropractors only help the body by releasing locked joints. All the rest of the work to regain your perfect health and shape is left to the body. Chiropractors have a strong belief that your body is a complete system. As a system, your body is designed to overcome severe and harmful conditions. This is the reason chiropractors do not prescribe painkillers for your pain. They will perform adjustments to put the body into a good shape to overcome any health challenges. Do not get me wrong; conventional medicine also comes in handy especially in cases where joints are not the main affected parts of your body.

The unified belief in your body’s strength to heal has made chiropractic treatment popular and acceptable all over the world. Simple statistics point worldwide popularity of chiropractic treatment. Around the 1960’s chiropractic treatment spread to South Africa, New Zealand and Canada. It was not until recently that chiropractic gained roots in Latin America, Australia, Europe and Asia. Studies show that in Australia one in every four adults usually sees a chiropractic on a regular basis.

  1. Chiropractic Treatment can be used to help torture survivors

If you have eve interacted with a torture survivor, you must have noticed how troubled they always seem to be. Victims of torture are usually left unattended to properly. This can lead to serious situations such as suicide or development of psychotic behavior. But the reason for their neglect us because people do not know how to handle their situation.

You will be happy to know that chiropractic treatment can improve the lives of trauma as well as torture survivors. Trauma, as well as torture, are horrible experiences. Both can lead to depression, pains as well as PTSD. But thank goodness, now we can use chiropractic treatment to prevent the trauma and torture related conditions.

This fact is supported by a report by the Boston University School of Public Health. According to the report, we can rely on chiropractic other related practice such as meditation, acupuncture, and massage to effectively deal with the trauma. The report only publicizes what has we already know for some years now.

  1. Improvised Chiropractic Treatment can worsen your condition

To start with, let me explain what I mean by improvised treatment. Your aging granny is constantly complaining of a severe back pain.  So what will you do? Wait a minute; you just now recall reading somewhere that spinal adjustment can help provide relief from chronic back pain. This is when you improvise a chiropractic clinic, the special tables as well as the doctor of chiropractic himself.

Bad idea! Never try that ever. Chiropractic treatment such as the manipulations as well as the spinal adjustments are practices which take a lot of years to perfect. You must know the right amount of pressure to apply and where to apply it. Doctors of chiropractic require years of intense training to master all the requirements. Therefore, sincerely speaking, acting the chiropractor is ignorance.

So where does it go wrong? You maybe went to a chiropractic once. Your visit to the chiropractic might give have taught you a thing or two. Yes, just ONE or Two things nothing more. You end up trying to apply what you think you saw the chiropractor do. In the end, you apply too much pressure around the neck. The person ignorantly waited for your “mojo” to work wakes up feeling worse than before. It can get even worse, as one reported incident in India confirms. According to the report of 2011, one man in India developed severe spinal cord and brainstem problems after receiving an adjustment from a barber.

  1. Anyone can train as a doctor of chiropractic

What does it take to be a doctor of chiropractic? You probably do not know this, but chiropractic is a health practice with formal schools and a legal framework governing it. As a discipline the world over, anyone can enroll to study chiropractic treatment. As long as you have hands, you will never face any challenges being a doctor of chiropractic. Not even a lack of vision.

And perhaps the last statement needs something to back it up. It is a fact, you probably only know now that one of the most successful chiropractors was blind. Being a victim of visual impairment does not make you incapable. Dr. Charles Robinson Johnson is a proof of that. In 1918, at the age of 39, Dr. Johnson graduated from the Palmer School of Chiropractic and he became the first blind chiropractor. The most successful one ever. Dr. Robinson practiced in Peekskill, New York for more than 25 years. He holds a traveled reputation of a miracle healer. He attended to hundreds of patients on a weekly basis. A newspaper giving him recognition as the person that made Peekskill famous.Frankly speaking, this is quite some achievement, especially for a person born in a mining camp. And thus the fact that anyone can turn out to be an amazing chiropractic.

With these few facts in mind, a lot of time spent expanding on them for you to relate to. Hopefully, you find a thing or two educative and pass on the knowledge. Together, let us give chiropractic treatment the honor and respect it deserves.
