Explaining Chiropractic

Has anyone ever asked you to explain chiropractic? Have you been in a situation where you are explaining chiropractic to someone but it seems like you are going in circles? Have you ever wished there was an easy way to explain chiropractic to a non-chiropractor and have it make sense and have impact?

I have a challenge for you; explain chiropractic in the following manner. There is only one no-no when using this explanation. You may not use the words Health, Wellness or discuss any kind of Symptom. There you have it. Here goes. Try this explanation.

Before you begin explaining chiropractic you need to find out a few things from the person you are talking to. Find out what they do, what are their interests, their hobbies, do they have a family, find out what drives them. Then speak to them in terms of performance and function. Then as you are talking about how subluxation lowers performance and function tie it in with these topics.

For example let’s say this person loves to fish. You explain that if they are subluxated they have nerve interference which can cause foggy thinking, your metabolism can slow down, you are not as sharp, hand eye coordination isn’t quite as good as it could be. How they will have diminished ability to feel in the fingers on the line the difference between a fish, weeds or rocks, ever so slight as it may be. They are not performing optimally with subluxation present.

You can use hand eye coordination for lots of brain-body activities. How about when you come home from work and you get to spend some quality time with your family. Do you want to be subluxated or not? Be creative. Show how having a nerve system working less than perfect negatively impacts their daily activities. Then of course explain how much better life can be having a properly functioning nerve system. Integrate these facts into the body of the following explanation.

So you want to know what chiropractic is all about. You have a brain located within your skull which extends through a large opening in the base of the skull traveling down through your backbone which is called your spinal cord. This spinal cord has 32 pair of nerves that branch off and pass between the vertebrae of your spine. These nerves travel to all parts of the body. As a matter of fact if you were to strip away everything from your body except for the nerve system we would still be able to recognize each other. You would see the curves of the body, the wrinkles in your skin as well as your tongue, eyelids, finger nails, fingers and toes. You have a lot of nerves in your body.

Do you understand what the nerve system is? Could you explain to me what its function is? (Here you wait for their answer and you gauge how well they understand neurophysiology. You then reinforce their answer or expound upon it so they understand: It is the brain and nerve system that controls, coordinates and runs the body. Once they grasp this concept you continue.)

Given the brain and nerve system runs all parts of the body it is important there is no interference of this brain-body communication system. The most common interference to the nerve system comes from subluxation. Subluxation is a minor misalignment of the bones of the spine which can sometimes pinch nerves but more commonly subluxation interferes with nerve transmissions from the brain to the body and back to the brain again. When there is interference between your brain and body, your performance suffers. Your body is unable to function as well as it could without nerve interference.

Chiropractors help insure an individual lives their life as free from nerve interference as possible. Chiropractors detect and correct vertebral subluxations. By doing this we are removing interference from your nerve system helping to insure that your brain is able to communicate with all parts of the body resulting in improved function and performance on every level.

Throughout your life you continue to do things that can and will cause you to subluxate. The majority of the time your body corrects these subluxations all by itself. However, sometimes the subluxations are not able to be self corrected by the body and that’s where the chiropractor comes into play. If you want your body to perform and function to the best of its ability and make the best use of all the good things you do for your body, as much as possible you must keep your nerve system functioning free from interference.

This is why you need to see your chiropractor regularly throughout a lifetime. Everyone can benefit from living life free from nerve interference. Not only should you get checked regularly but so should your spouse your brothers &, sisters, your kids, your parents, your friends…you get the idea.

I wouldn’t have you do anything I wouldn’t and I get checked for subluxation every week. Let’s say we start getting you and your family checked out.

There you have it. You have just explained the essence of chiropractic and we never discussed symptoms, health or wellness. We just explained that your life will be better off when you live life free from nerve interference caused by subluxation.

Inevitably a person will then ask you well that all sounds great but what about my (and they name a condition). They ask you about their symptoms.

Your answer is: “When we remove nerve interference your body will function and perform better on every level, good things happen. This may or may not help your condition; however lots of people have been helped with many different conditions once getting under chiropractic care. Knowing what you now know that makes sense doesn’t it? Whether or not this will help, is yet to be determined. First we need to see if you are subluxated and then correct them and see what happens. Let’s see what happens to you?”

Give this a try the next time you are explaining chiropractic to someone. You will find out it is very easy to do and quite effective.

I was just wondering the other day what chiropractors in Salem OR actually do? I know that they help with back injuries and tenseness, but I had no idea what their job description entailed. I'm no expert on the subject (obviously), but you seem to have done a really good job here describing more about it. I definitely agree that it helps to explain something when you have some sort of common ground.

Yeah, I don't think I'm experienced enough with any sort of chiropractor to know how to explain that in any way.

Rick James said...

What a way to describe a chiropractor! I don't think I could have explained it better, I tend to ramble when I try to explain things whether I know much about it or not.

Thank you for posting about Chiropractic. Also I would be glad if you check out the best chiropractors in NJ who can be of great help for treatment.

This is such a great post! It's probably the best description of chiropractic medicine that I've heard. I've only been to a chiropractor in New York City once, but it was a pleasant experience overall.

Thanks for explaining all this. We've been thinking of going to the chiropractor in Long Grove. We're just not sure if it's the best option.

The interesting thing about chiropractic clinics in Wasilla is that not many of them seem to offer massage as part of treatment. If I'm paying for my back to be fixed I definitely expect a massage out of the deal!!

Malcolm Durocher said...

Wow, interesting post! I've definitely found it hard to explain chiropractics to people who haven't experienced it. But my chiropractor in Ajax is great. I love going to see him!

Joan Mendoza said...

Thanks for sharing this blog. This is very helpful especially like me who is experiencing unbearable back pain. If you are one of us, do not hesitate to consult to a Chiropractic clinic and live a pain-free life!

I don't know if this is a stupid question or not but I was wondering if a chiropractor is the same thing or has the same duties as a reflexologist?

jake ostler said...

Great information, thanks for sharing. I go to a chiropractor in Kaysville who does great work. Totally fixed my back.

Michelle Thornton said...

This was a really interesting blog post. I enjoyed learning what a chiropractor really does, rather than just thinking I know what they do. I was quite wrong. Thank you for posting. With this definition in mind, have you ever heard of the chiropractor in Buffalo Grove IL? I am wondering if they are good.

Lance Tankman said...

This is great, it reminds me a lot of my own experiences with my chiropractor in oshawa he was a great guy.

Nerve interference is often spoken about but seldom do we hear about "chi" interference, or the interruption of ener "chi" through out the body. It is a bit more of an Eastern Philosophy that through modalities such as chiropractic, when nerve flow opens, so the chi or "life force". There are certain metals such as titanium and germanium which when placed on the body (in the form of jewelry, etc.) have shown to improve the natural flow of energy and can have remarkable results. A good example of this is found at www.eforceplus.com where there are actual videos showing this occurrence.

Forgot to mention that the increased energy flow, whether through chiropractic or the utilization of certain minerals worn on the body, can be seen using Kirlian photography as seen at http://www.eforceplus.com

Thanks for sharing this article. My back has been hurting me a lot recently. When I went to the doctor he recommended finding a chiropractic in Anchorage AK but I wasn't sure what that meant. This post helped me understand what a chiropractor is and what he will be able to do for my back. Thanks!

I had a work accident that caused me to have to go to the chiropractor. I go to the chiropractic clinics in fairbanks alaska. They do a great job and and have helped me recover very quickly.

Thank you for explaining a little bit more about chiropractic therapy! I've heard that there are some great chiropractors in Naples FL! Also did you know that Usain Bolt had just got his back realigned by a chiropractor before breaking the world record in the 100M dash? Sweet stuff!

I have never been to the chiropractor. I have had it suggested and been told to avoid it. I have no idea what to think.

Chiropractic can help many different conditions, but there are conditions that should avoid chiropractic care. I know of a really good chiropractor, Dr. Mark Silverman, in Miami. If you're confused about what it can help, go ask a chiropractor.

I am seriously hoping that they can help me out, because right now I'm in so much pain I can't hardly stand it. I am so glad that there are chiropractors around, because without them I don't know what I would do about these injuries.

I never knew that chiropractors had so much to do with nerves. I thought they just adjusted your joints. But it makes sense that you feel better after it.

I remember when I was having back pain and problems that I was in some serious need of going to the chiropractor. It helped me out so much and it got rid of my back pain. I remember the whole reason that I was having back problems in the first place. It was because I had grown 6 inches in one summer and it really messed with my back and was causing the pain that I had.

So I don't know that much about chiropractors. So that's why I'm here asking, so go figure. But anyways, I was wondering how similar or different is a reflexologitst. Compared to a chiropractor? Because they seemed rather the same. So I just wanted to ask and hopefully get some clarification.

After my car accident, I went to the chiropractor several times to take care of my whiplash. I've been a convert ever since, but I run into this problem often - how to convince people that it works better than over-the-counter medications most of the time because it fixes the root of the problem, not the symptoms. Next time I have to explain it, I'm using this method. Thanks!

Thanks for all of the great information. I think a lot of people would be surprised to find how many ailments could be alleviated by removing nerve interference in their body. I didn't give chiropractics much thought until a friend suggested it as a way to help with numerous health conditions I was experiencing. I decided to try it out and found relief from problems I didn't realize could have anything to do with my nervous system.

I agree that some people don't really understand all that chiropractors are and do. My sister got a massage from a chiropractor and it really improved her way of life. I have been having some problems with my legs from running. I'll have to look into going myself!

This was all excellent information. I have been on a waiting list for my chiropractor for about 2 weeks. I love the way I feel after any chiropractic work. http://springschiropractic.com/about-us/

Maybe I don't understand fully what Chiropractic is, I thought it was self-explanatory. The reason being is it feels like heaven, especially if it follows an hour and a half massage. My buddy's dad is a Chiropractor and I would always try to get him to hook me up with free massages.

You explained subluxations so well. I wasn't really sure when a chiropractor would come into play, but it completely makes sense that your body can't always fix the subluxations by itself. Thanks for the information. I'll have to find a chiropractor and set up an appointment.

I have gained a lot of weight over the last few years and it is finally having an effect on my lower back. I have to see a chiropractor every few weeks and instructs me on different stretches which for me are very difficult. I wish this could all be easier.

From the way you describe it, chiropractic care is an art. My back has been giving me some trouble lately, and I am looking for a chiropractor. I would like to get some recommendations, but my neighbors and friends have never been.

Are there statistics on the effectiveness of these procedures? My grandma had some chiropractic work done a few years ago and it worked for her. I am interested to see if it is the same for most people. http://www.spinalrehabclinic.com

Cory Trevor said...

Did you ever go to a chiropractor, Jerry? I am also having back trouble and have never been treated. If you found some that you like, I would love a referral. I can't wait to get some relief.

Thank you for this very informative post. Although it is aimed at chiropractors to help them explain what they do to non-chiropractors, it is also easy enough for non-chiropractors to understand. The explanation about nerves really clarified the chiropractor's role in a patient's health.

I have a friend who is studying to be a chiropractor. He is in his last year of school! He is currently working at a chiropractic office and sometimes helps the licensed chiropractors. From what he has said, they use more equipment and software than he had expected. I wonder where they get their software.

I love your statement about getting to know what a person does for a living, as well as their hobbies, before explaining what the word 'chiropractic' means. This shows empathy for the person you're talking to. This also helps because you're getting to know your audience and how they understand and perceive things. Thank you so much for an interesting and useful article, which I won't soon forget.

I agree that chiropractic is very hard to explain. My uncle is a chiropractor and he explains it well. However, if you ask anyone else it is very hard to explain. I would agree that in order to explain chiropractic you should relate it to something that the listener knows about.

I have actually really learned a lot about chiropractors lately. I think it is really interesting how they can realign your body so you don't have any nerve issues. I think it would help to go in and get checked out if you are having nerve issues or frequent headaches. It would really help you stay clear of pain and will also improve your mobility.

I don't think that enough people understand chiropractic services. I have friends and family members who have had some pretty incredible experiences with chiropractic work. I know that it can work pretty easily if you go to somebody that is good. I've actually been having some serious back problems lately. I think that going to a chiropractor would help me quite a bit.

I was at the gym doing some lifts for my back and I ended up hurting. I've been trying to figure out what I should do and I heard that going to see a chiropractor is my best bet. I wasn't sure what to look for but this helped a ton.

I know a lot of people ar skeptics about chiropractics, but I really don't know why. Chiropractic adjustments really can help to align your body and correct a lot of things. I wonder if people assume it is like a placebo effect? I have met some people that treat it like witchcraft, which I do not understand.

I have been having problems with my back for a few weeks now. I have been to a doctor who recommended that I visit a chiropractor. I have made an appointment with the chiropractor for next week. Hopefully the chiropractor will be able to fix whatever is wrong with my back. I have heard some very good things about chiropractors and I have complete faith that he will fix me.

I have had terrible back pain ever since I was a little girl. I grew up thinking that everyone had the same problem. Later on, I realized that it was just me. I have tried so many things, and I feel like I have ran out of options. I am willing to try just about anything at this point.

Very beautifully explanation and the title "The Last Chiropractor".
Chiropractors are there to bring the longtime relief for your back pain. They use spinal manipulation treatment to ease your old back pain.

My mother has been having troubles with her neck and she is not sure what is causing the pain. She doesn't think that the pain is coming from sleep or her pillow. I have recommended that she go see a chiropractor and have him take a look and try to help. If anything, the chiropractor will probably straighten her back and maybe make her neck temporarily feel better.

I have been hearing a lot about chiropractic work. I think it could really help me out. I have had a lot of issues over the years with back and neck pain. My brother has told me that this helps him, and he wants me to try it. I guess it wouldn't hurt to at least try it out.

This is an interesting way to look at the field of chiropractics. This description of what a chiropractor does really highlights the fact that they help a lot with potential nerve problems. I know a lot of people who have dealt with nerve issues in the past, and I certainly do not envy them. I really enjoyed reading your article. Thanks for sharing!

My mom just had surgery on her knee and is in the recovering process. She still has a ways to go, but she wants to find a quality chiropractor that can help her get back up to 100%. This has some great insights that I think will help us out with just that.

My wife has been having some back pain and needs to go see a treatment center. We aren't sure what caused her back pain, but that is what we plan on finding out. I have been looking into making her an appointment for this weekend and hopefully she can feel better. I want her to have a much better work week from here on out
