Welcome to BMAF! Chiropractic is the science that is dedicated to identifying, correcting, and promoting the healing of the dysfunctions of the neuromusculoskeletal system which is composed of:
- The tendons
- And all his nerve endings.
Chiropractic also analyzes and helps to improve the effects of these parts of the body on health in general, relying on the ability of the human body to regenerate itself, without the need to apply medicines, drugs or surgeries.
How does Chiropractic work?
To begin with we must understand that the central nervous system is like a communications network that sends messages from the brain and the different parts of the body through the spinal cord and the nerves that divide from it.These nerves come out in pairs between each of the mobile vertebrae, distributed throughout our body making a connection with our organs and tissues.
It is estimated that each human being has 15 billion nerve cells sending and receiving messages through the spinal cord.From this it is understood that the spine is formed by its moving parts called vertebrae and its shock absorbers called intervertebral discs, which are responsible for protecting the spinal cord and delicate nerve tissue, allows mobility and flexibility without endangering our nervous system.
However, various physical, chemical, and emotional factors can produce vertebral subluxations.A subluxation is the misalignment of the vertebrae, causing them to lose their shape, not function properly, losing functionality and balance with other nearby vertebrae.
As a consequence, these misaligned vertebrae generate a dysfunction in the movement of the human body, which directly interferes with the proper functioning of the nervous system, also accelerating the deterioration and tearing of surrounding muscles, ligaments, discs and joints.
These problems of functionality, produce problems of health as:
- Discomfort in the thorax.
- Resentment in the neck.
- General tiredness.
- Heavy shoulders.
- Limited movement in the body.
- Tingling or numbness in arms and legs.
- Back pain in the lower, middle, or upper back.
- Burning in one or both knees.
- Among many other symptoms.
Chiropractic specialists restore the normal functioning of the joints or vertebrae, when they are affected by states of displacement that are not natural and are harmful to health; this state is called subluxation.
Correct the subluxation of the vertebrae, releasing the nerve compressions that affect them, through controlled manipulation; this type of action is also known as chiropractic adjustment.
Thus, in each vertebra, we apply a specific force in a very specific direction, to correct the vertebra and its nearby tissues that are affected, returning the space that corresponds to each part of the spine, releasing interference that were affecting the nervous system.
How can chiropractic help us?
This technique can be used as prevention and treatment of different pathologies such as:
- Low back pain
- Herniated disks
- Correcting bad postures
Who can receive chiropractic treatment?
Chiropractic treatment can be applied to people of all ages, including newborns, always taking care that the chiropractor who is going to perform the manipulation is a certified chiropractic professional.
Chiropractic treatment should be based on several factors:
- The age of the patient
- How long has the patient been having problems?
- Intensity and types of pain presented by the patient.
- Detailed measurement of each part of the body.
- Daily and work habits of the patient.
- Ý other essential elements.
How many chiropractic adjustments do I need to feel good?
The amount and frequency of chiropractic adjustments varies depending on each patient’s case.It should be noted that each organism reacts differently: Some people assimilate the treatment more quickly than others.For this reason it is necessary to perform a series of physical examinations on the patient, to analyze diagnostic images in order to evaluate the condition of the spine, in terms of structure and degeneration.
