Spring 2014 Newsletter
Chiropractic is focused on finding the root cause of the dysfunction/dis-ease by removing the interference to the communication system in the human body - the central nervous system.  Once this is accomplished the body can begin to restore balance.  This not only facilitates the healing process but frees up the body's reserves to allow the individual to express their full potential.

While many people consider chiropractic only relevant in structural healing chiropractic care has a global effect on the human condition. The various aspects of the subluxation process include many factors.  Today I thought I would share with you the impact of Chiropractic on your overall functional capabilities.   


Kinesiopathology - abnormal joint motion   

  • Affects proprioceptive and nociceptive input.
  • Creates compensatory patterns and reactions (muscles).
  • Decreases available energy for healing and growth potential.
  • Lowers adaptive threshold due to biomechanical stress.  
Neuropathophysiology - spinal dysfunctions effect on central neural processing.
  • Altered afferent input from joints can lead to both inhibition and facilitation of neural input to related muscles.  Even painless induced joint dysfunction has been shown to inhibit surrounding muscles
  • Rapid central plastic changes after injuries and altered sensory input from the body have been observed.
  • Adaptive neural plastic changes can occur over time in the CNS due to the altered sensory input.

Structural Neuropathophysiology - Piezoelectricity (Mechanical energy applied to crystalline structures results in electrical responses).

  • Connective tissue and bones are crystalline in nature therefore biomechanical changes, such as those that occur in subluxations, may elicit electrical responses in bone and other connective tissues.
  • Such electrical changes may effect, "control of cell nutrition, local pH control and enzyme activation or suppression, orientation of intracellular macromolecules, migratory an proliferative activity of cells, synthetic capability and specialized function of cells, contractility and permeability of cell membranes and energy transfer."

Myopathophysiology Muscle Facilitation (either too tense or too loose) causing:

  • Discomfort
  • Pain
  • Compensation patterns
  • Decreased threshold and tolerance
  • Reducing excessive signaling from the involved intervertebral muscles changes the way the CNS responds to subsequent input. This alters how the nervous system responds to the environment.

Meningeal/Structural Neuropathophysiology - Neurological Irritation and Dysfunction      

  • Stretching or compression of spinal nerves causing increased or decreased tone leading to abnormal nerve conductivity - Distorted input and output
    • Too much or too little -Systemic fatigue

Meningeal/Dural Primary Respiratory Pathophysiology - Change in CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) flow and / or pressure 

  • CSF stasis may be associated with adverse mechanical cord tension, vertebral subluxation syndrome, and restricted respiratory function.  
  • Decreased CSF flow seen in an overall pattern of structural and energetic dysfunction in the axial skeleton and CNS.
    • Brain temperature changes
    • CNS nutrient deficiencies
    • Waste and toxic residue buildup
    • Electrolytic environment of the (CNS) * Systemic acid-base balance
    • Transports hormones, neurotransmitters, releasing factors, an other neuropeptides throughout the CNS.

Viscerosomatic or Somatoviscero Pathophysiology 

  • Sympathetic or parasympathetic imbalances - Structural, vasomotor or dural influences on the thoraco - lumbar sympathetic chain
  • Structural,vasomotor or dural influences on the sacrum and occiput - parasympathetic influences
  • Nutrient deficiencies, toxic overload, organic deficiencies and disrupt afferent or efferent pre and post ganglionic neurological transmission.
  • Waste and toxic residue buildup or ischemia.

Global Neuropathophysiology - Abnormal Brain and CNS Function

  • Changes in brain wave patterns  
  • Changes in blood supply
  • Changes in the quality and quantity of nerve impulses
  • Neurotransmitter dysfunction - Threshold variances - Negative neuroplastic changes

Mental Impulse Pathophysiology

  • Changes in cell membrane permeability.
  • Stimulation of negative genetic propensities by destruction of enteric protein coat on genes.
"Genes and DNA do not control our biology; instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts."        Bruce Lipton - Biology of Belief

Spring is Here - The 21 Day Purification Program


We are constantly exposed to numerous chemical and environmental toxins.  The toxins build up in the body and can cause a variety of symptoms and dysfunctions including:


  • Fatigue and difficulty sleeping
  • Indigestion and other gastrointestinal discomfort
  • Congestion
  • Inflammation
  • Weight gain
  • Decreased mental clarity
  • Decreased libido
  • Loss of or drier hair
  • Acne
  • Allergies
  • Etc. 

Treating these symptoms individually instead of a part of the whole limits the response.  If several of the above issues ring true for you, using the seasonal transition from cold to the warmer weather of Spring to begin cleansing your body can promote the release of toxins and promote healing. 


The 21 Day Purification Program is not just another diet or quick detox.  By following this program you can create a transition to a new way of eating resulting in a variety of lifestyle changes and healing capabilities.  Eating an abundance of fresh vegetables and fruits on a regular basis along with exercise support your bodies' ability to fight disease and maintain health.


If you are interested in more information or would like to begin the purification program please ask one of our doctors or staff.

Resolution of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disorder in an Infant with Vertebral Subluxation: A Case Report & Selective Review of Literature


Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health - Chiropractic ~ Volume 2014 ~ Issue 2 ~ Pages 21-26

Objective:  This case report will discuss the role of chiropractic care in the resolution of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in an infant.


Clinical Features:  The mother of a 10-month-old boy presented her son for chiropractic care with a medical diagnosis of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The patient's complaints included interrupted sleep, difficulty feeding, poor appetite, repeated bouts of diarrhea, stomach distension, excessive intestinal gas, and poor weight gain. Previous, unsuccessful care involved medical treatment consisting of an over the counter antacid, followed by Nexium, and finally Zantac.


Interventions and Outcomes:  A course of conservative management was carried out, consisting of 13 chiropractic visits over a seven-week period, utilizing the diversified full spine protocol adapted for pediatric adjusting. Notable improvements were attained throughout care, with complete resolution of GERD and return to normal weight.


Conclusions:  This case report contributes to the body of scientific literature regarding chiropractic care of infants suffering from GERD.
