Subluxations and Dis-ease
Disease and dis-ease: a medical and a chiropractic perspective -
When there is a subluxation present, a part of the nervous system ceases to function optimally. At this point the body is in a state of "dis-ease". When dis-ease is present:
At the point when "dis-ease" develops, a person may go to his medical physician because he does not feel well, but the MD will find no medically diagnosable condition. Over time, if this dis-ease is not treated, it will progress into a state of "disease", which can be diagnosed medically because the condition has progressed to the point where:
The medical definition of "disease" - is based on a specific set of lab findings that exist in association with a specific set of symptoms.
The chiropractic definition of "dis-ease" - is based on the subluxations that cause the dis-ease, which ultimately manifests as disease.
Chiropractors address the subluxations, that if left untreated can cause disease, rather than focusing on the disease itself. While chiropractic does not directly treat disease, chiropractic care can positively influence many medically diagnosed conditions. The work of a chiropractor is to find and remove subluxations that cause dis-ease and ultimately disease. Once the subluxations are removed, the body is able to heal itself.
Why have I not been told about subluxations? There are several reasons why you may not have heard of subluxations or of the importance of removing subluxations.
