Chiropractic Success – Scientifically Explained
If you are looking for a scientific explanation of how Ewa Beach chiropractors achieve the results they do, this paragraph is for you. A concise scientific explanation of chiropractic is that adjustments directly affect musculoskeletal structures by reducing pain and increasing joint motion.
Musculoskeletal structures include ligaments, muscles, joints, joint capsules and surrounding myofascial tissues. Aside from this direct benefit, the autonomic nervous system is indirectly affected by the down regulation of the sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight system), and promotion of the para-sympathetic nervous system (rest and repair system).
This is done through the effect that chiropractic adjustments have on joint capsules, and the body’s proprioception mechanism (sense of where one is in space) through the mechanoreceptors (provide information regarding mechanical changes within the body) in the joints, and periarticular tissues (tissue surrounding the joint).
That’s a lot to take in, but it is the explanation as to why some Ewa Beach chiropractic patients report improvement in organic function, not only musculoskeletal benefits. To reiterate, this is not a claim that chiropractic adjustments treat systemic pathology, but does suggest that some who have systemic symptoms may see results from chiropractic care even without the presence of pain.
