Echiropractic Greeting and Reminder Cards:
||One of the most important things you can do to help yourself is to find out as much as possible about your care, subluxation, chiropractic, and health in general.|
|What is an
|Adjustment shall be differentiated from spinal manipulation in that the adjustment can only be applied to a vertebral malposition with the express intent to improve or correct the subluxation, whereas any joint, subluxated or not, may be manipulated to mobilize the joint or to put the joint through its range of motion.|
Care! (for new
parents, "to educate
them about the
trauma of the birth
process and the need
Health consequences to the newborn from subluxations caused from birth trauma range from immediate and severe to hidden problems that may take years to surface. Some of the more immediate and tragic results that have been documented are spinal cord and brain stem injuries, brain bleeding and swelling, neurological deficits, breathing problems and even sudden infant death syndrome.
The long-term consequences are as varied as the nerve system itself. Some of the more commonly mentioned problems that have been linked to traumatic birth are learning disabilities, headaches, visual and hearing problems, certain palsies, and a number of immune functional problems.
Chiropractors have been stressing for years the importance of having newborns checked for vertebral subluxations. Checking the spine of an infant is painless and easy. The importance of a developing baby being free of nerve interference from subluxation cannot be understated
|The Two Most
to Us (for patients
who often miss
|When someone has crooked teeth, and they get braces, they need to wear those braces on their teeth continually for up to several years. This may then have to be followed by several years of retainers or night braces. In chiropractic, we do not put little braces on each spinal bone to pull them into position. To make a correction most spines require a series of adjustments to start the process changing spinal structures. These schedules are specifically designed for the spine of each patient. Missing appointments and not following your schedule, greatly reduces your chance for correction of your subluxations.|
|We Miss You (for
"long lost patients")
|If you have subluxations effecting your nervous system you can not function at your highest capacity. Therefore, you are less efficient and waste time. There is no better time spent than that spent on your health. Giving yourself health now will prevent a much greater waste of time later possibly fighting health problems of all kinds.|
Chiropractic "maintenance care" is a very poor investment. No study has ever shown that people who have their spine checked and adjusted enjoy better health or have less disease than people who do not. Chiropractors who make such claims or who hunt for "subluxations" should be avoided.
