IT’S NOT THE BONES
We experience our lives through our electronics, whether enjoying a particular sensory event or responding to trauma. It’s all about the electronics.
Not muscles. Not range of motion. Not posture. And certainly not bones. Physical, chemical or emotional trauma overloads the brain and causes it to activate a reflex defense mechanism. Think of it as a circuit breaker. Chiropractors call this state “subluxation”.
For many of us subluxation begins at birth or even in the womb. Chiropractic adjustments don’t “put the bone back”. An adjustment is a stimulus that the brain uses as it sees fit. It may be common, even helpful, to visualize the offending joint being normalized, but since bones are held in place by muscles, and muscles are directed by the body's electronics, the notion of putting bones “back” that were “out” is outdated.
It is subluxation’s whole body electronic consequences, however subtle, in which the brain loses touch with the body, and the intention of reducing it, that makes chiropractic unique.
