Dr. Mark S. Sielski: 

The Activator is a hand-held instrument. A lot of the patients call it like a clicker, all right? What it does is it's a very light force because it's high speed, and you're able to really get into areas that might be a little bit tougher with other techniques. You can get in there, and you can adjust the specific areas of the spine. For some patients, they need that light touch. You still get the same outcome, but it's just a different approach.

Dr. Mark S. Sielski: 

The pro adjuster is a computerized instrument where it does a detailed analysis using piezoelectric cells that are in the ends of the instrument, and we can analyze the spine and find different areas where there are restrictions or where there's a lot of muscle tension, and then we can go in and use the same instrument to adjust that specific area.

Dr. Mark S. Sielski: 

We look for the cause and most other specialties do not. They treat symptoms and that's not what we to do here. We find the cause of what's going on and when you remove the cause, most of the time you're gonna get rid of the symptoms. And once the symptoms are gone, then we can go for stability and then once the stability...when we get stability, then we go for maintenance.

Chiropractic Stress Series: Physical Stress (The Three T’s-- Trauma, Toxins, and Thoughts- Causes of nerve Interference and Subluxation)

Chiropractic Stress Series: Physical Stress (The Three T’s-- Trauma, Toxins, and Thoughts- Causes of nerve Interference and Subluxation)
Published Thursday, 24 May 2018

D.D. Palmer, the author of 1910’s The Chiropractor’s Adjuster, stated that the causes of nerve interference and subluxation are the 3 T’s: trauma, toxins, and thoughts. Since then, chiropractors around the world have used these three elements to identify the source of each patient’s nerve interference and subluxation, so not only can adjustments be made to the body, but the overall health and wellness of the patient can be taken care of.

Before we get to the Three T’s, we need to understand nerve interference and subluxation.

Subluxation

The chiropractic definition of subluxation is a slight misalignment of vertebrae. It is said to be the central cause of many health problems, according to chiropractic theory.

Nerve Interference

Subluxation is what causes nerve interference. Adjusting the misalignment of the vertebrae allows the nerves to function properly and restore and maintain overall health and wellness.

Chiropractors can help with many different types of physical pain by making spinal adjustments to correct nerve interference caused by subluxation. But what causes the subluxation in the first place?

The Three T’s: Trauma, Toxins, and Thoughts

If you are experiencing subluxation of your vertebrae, it is likely due to trauma, toxins, thoughts, or a combination of the three. Pinpointing the cause of your misalignment is a fundamental part of chiropractic medicine; with regular chiropractic adjustment, you can fix the not only the symptoms but the cause of the misalignment.

Trauma

Trauma is the most obvious cause of subluxation. This refers to any physical injury that might cause misalignment of your vertebrae. There are many different physical injuries capable of impacting the spine, including:  

  • Childbirth
  • Sports injury
  • Car accident
  • Forceful coughing
  • Fall

Your chiropractor may take x-rays or simply do a physical exam if you are having pain related to trauma. It’s likely that you will need to see the doctor for a series of chiropractic adjustments as well as an at-home regimen of stretching in order to fully heal your misalignment.

Toxins

The public at large is demanding more and more information about the toxins we are exposed to each day.  This includes the way these dangerous toxins come into contact with your body as well as the impact they have on your overall health. Any kind of toxin, such as a cleaning agent, processed food, or air pollution, can cause imbalances in your body. Your muscles react to imbalances by contracting, creating subluxation in your spine.

If you have had no physical trauma, but are having back issues, headaches, muscle weakness, or any other symptoms that could be related to subluxation, you might need to start looking at the toxins going into your body and where they are coming from. Sometimes changing the cleaning agents you use at home or making a change to your diet— coupled with regular chiropractic adjustments— can go a long way in fixing the alignment of your spine and relieving your pain.

Thoughts

While it might not be the most obvious cause of subluxation in the spine, it is likely the number one cause for most patients. Stress from your job, a fight with your significant other, worry about your kids, or even just watching the news can cause the muscles in your body to contract when you start feeling the stress and anxiety of everyday life.

Aside from the physical adjustments from your chiropractor, they will also give you advice on how to better manage stress so that your body doesn’t have the reaction and continue causing you pain.

If you have physical pain and are having trouble identifying the root causes, the doctors at South Orange Chiropractic are here to help. Call our team today to set up an appointment to see how we can improve your overall health and wellness.

Dr. Stephen Levine: 

Coming to this office, South Orange Chiropractic Center, we look for the most natural and efficient and effective form of care to help relieve a patient's symptoms. One of the key distinctions we make is: Are we treating the pain, or are we treating the problem? Many patients come to us that have had their pain treated, head pain, back pain, neck pain and they're chasing it with the chemistry. They're putting drugs into the body. If this drug doesn't work, try this drug. If this doesn't work, try this one.

Well, here, we want to find the cause. If we can't find the cause, we're not going to start treatment. So, the object of our first visit is always does the patient belong here? If you do, we tell you. If not, we're not going to waste your time or our time. But the key is finding the cause of the problem. Once we treat the cause, the symptoms go away.

Dr. Mark Roczey: 

Once somebody's neck pain has been addressed, and we are able to diagnose the condition, and we treat them aggressively on active care, we slowly place the patient on passive care. At that point, they're instructed to do more at-home exercises. We commonly recommend a cervical neck pillow to support the neck curvature at night, which is so important, as well as posture techniques at work, so that they can stabilize and address any issues that might be causing more stress on their neck.

Dr. Stephen Levine: 

Numbness and tingling in the hands, not uncommon for some people, but they don't know how to deal with it because it's a hand problem they think. I don't have neck pain, but my hand's numb, especially at night, or it wakes me up during the night, or in the morning I've got to shake it loose, but it never happened before.

So based on our consultation and the history, when we do a thermal scan, if we see the nerve is hot in the neck, and we can see that on the camera, we know the nerve from the neck runs down the arm. Maybe that's the beginning of the hand numbness, is the beginning of a degenerative condition, or a loss of curve in the neck. Because as chiropractors we look at curves, we look at the normal structure, because we know that structure determines function. And ff you're not functioning that well, structurally, something's got to be wrong. Let us find the cause of the problem, and let us come up with and help you with a solution.

Dr. Mark Roczey: 

Well, throughout my 13 years of being a chiropractor, it's been an incredible story. I've seen so many people come in with just back pain and neck pain, and come out with some miracles. We had one couple, when I first started and they were trying to have a baby. And for many years, they've been going through shots and injections all through the medical procedure. The next thing you know, they haven't done anything for months. The one thing did change was chiropractic care.

Another condition, which one patient came in with, was just neck pain. And throughout her three months of coming here, she was asking me questions. Does the adjustment help me sleep better, does the adjustment help reduce stress, does the adjustment help her immunity? And, all of these questions were yeses. And this patient noticed not only did her neck pain reduce, but she was living a life that she's been searching for all these years. 

The adjustment is so powerful. Many people don't realize that when you're adjusted, it affects the quality and condition of your brain. More and more studies show now, after an adjustment the brain is powered up by up to 20% in your pre-frontal cortex. And that's known for higher thinking, better balance, spatial awareness, immunity, less stress, better memory retention and regurgitation. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. More and more people are gonna start to see that when they get adjusted, their body can perform optimally.
