10 Researched Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustments

If you haven’t visited a chiropractor before, you might be missing out. Millions of people around the world have experienced the incredible benefits of chiropractic care.
One of the best things about chiropractic care, is that it is a drug-free and surgery-free path to healing naturally.
People have reported chiropractic benefits help to improve:
Back pain
Ear infections
Neck pain
Arthritis and joint pain
Blood pressure
Healthy pregnancy
Organ function
Surgery prevention
There are a lot of misconceptions about chiropractic and how chiropractors are trained. In fact, did you know many chiropractic programs also incorporate an entire year of PhD level advanced nutrition training?

However, most of the benefits of seeing a chiropractor come from getting a chiropractic adjustment. Let’s talk about the philosophy, history and evidence-based research of chiropractic care.

What Chiropractors Believe

Chiropractors pride themselves on taking a natural, drugless approach to helping their patients reach their health goals. Essentially, the basic principle upon which the entire profession is built upon is that our bodies have the amazing innate ability to heal itself (under the right conditions), and it is the chiropractor’s job to help create an environment to facilitate this.
Because the nervous system controls every cell and organ in your body, chiropractors focus their attention on the health of your spine being properly aligned and if there are shifts, helping the spine come back into alignment.

History of Chiropractic Benefits Deafness
The natural healing art of chiropractic was first developed by a magnetic healer named D.D. Palmer in 1895. According to history, it all started when Harvey Lillard – a man who was deaf in one ear – went in to see Palmer for his condition hoping that he had something up his sleeve to cure the deafness.
When Palmer learned that Lillard suffered a head injury that preceded his condition, he evaluated his spine and noticed that a vertebra in the upper back seemed wildly out of alignment. According to Palmer,
“I had a case of heart trouble which was not improving. I examined the spine and found a displaced vertebra pressing against the nerves, which innervate the heart. I adjusted the vertebra and gave immediate relief — nothing “accidental” or “crude” about this. Then I began to reason if two diseases, so dissimilar as deafness and heart trouble, came from impingement, a pressure on nerves, were not other disease due to a similar cause? Thus the science (knowledge) and art (adjusting) of Chiropractic were formed at that time.”
Palmer coined his manual therapy technique chiropractic, which comes from the two Greek words cheiros and praktikos (meaning “with hands”). Since then, countless millions of people across the globe have benefited from this manual therapy that some sources date back to Hippocrates!
Vertebral Subluxation
At the core of the numerous chiropractic miracle stories is a concept known as “vertebral subluxation.” When chiropractors use this phrase, they are referring to mechanical compression and irritation to spinal joints and nerves. In Harvey Lillard’s case, the nerves affecting his sense of hearing were compromised and once D.D. Palmer freed his body of this “neurological insult,” his hearing was restored.
For someone else, it could be sciatica
Or gastrointestinal complaints

When you consider how most cells and organs in your body are controlled by nerves traveling through your spinal canal, it’s mind-blowing to consider how vast the side effects can be!

Why Get Chiropractic Adjustments?

Many things can lead to a vertebral subluxation. Some of the more common causes I have found are:
A vertebra going out of place (“misalignment”) because of a slip or fall (i.e. “macrotrauma”)
The entire spine mis-aligning globally due to poor posture (i.e. “microtrauma”).
Joint swelling caused by damage done to the intervertebral joint.
An inflammatory response caused by a poor diet, lack of pure water, or psychological stress.
Osteoporosis or degenerative changes of the spine or intervertebral discs.
Trigger points and tight back muscles that pull the vertebrae out of place.

Importance of Posture

The problem that we’re seeing in Western Cultures is that our unnatural habit of sitting down all day is doing a number on our spine. Not to mention our posture! We’re glued to our cell phones, iPads and laptops!
Far too many live their lives hunched over and with their necks stuck out like turtles. Doctors call this “forward head posture” and studies have proven that for every 1 inch that your head sticks out from a true center of gravity, your neck bears an extra 10 pounds of stress. Just think about how common and dangerous this can be for your health!
During posture evaluations, chiropractors regularly observe many of their patients carrying their head 2-3 inches forward, which is an extra 20-30 pounds of pressure on their neck!

Heal Your Body While You Sleep Deep With Magnetico Sleep Pads

I just wanted to share my personal story of how our Magnetico Sleep Pad has enabled me to recover from debilitating arthritic back pain, which I had suffered from since my teen years. I have to say that initially, it was more curiosity than knowledge that enticed me to study magnetism and its effects on the human body. I observed temporary results from smaller magnets and incorrectly designed magnetic mattress pads. When I learned of the depletion of our environmental magnetic field, it seemed that that would be a logical place to begin to experiment. Thus began the very first Sleep Pad designed to correctly provide a unified negative field. It provided a relief for me that nothing else had achieved. I rely on it for continued health, energy, flexibility, and function. I decided to further refine the design for other family members and friends. Soon, increasing numbers of people with similar chronic complaints heard of my results and were asking for Sleep

Pads to alleviate their own aches and pains!

Based on the results I was seeing, I patented my design and formed Magnetico Inc. in 1991. I began to manufacture and market this innovative product, but I also pursued ongoing research. Magnetico has been operating as a successful family business ever since.
My desire and purpose is to help you achieve your health goals. At Magnetico, we believe in our product so much that we offer a Six-Month Satisfaction Guarantee. You will see noticeable improvements in your sleep and health.

I have been fortunate enough to have been sleeping on a Magnetico Sleep Pad for the last four years. It has been an invaluable investment in my health. Imagine healing your body while you sleep for the rest of your enhanced life? The Magnetico NEVER wears out. I sleep much deeper than I have for over 30 years. I fall asleep soon after lying down and often don’t remember the night because of the deep restful sleep. Before the Magnetico I would toss and turn all night long barely dozing off for only a few hours at a time. I would have to drag myself out of bed in the morning due to the lack of adequate rest. The insomnia and subsequent fatigue was adversely affecting my health. The Magnetico has been lifechanging for myself and my health.
