Vertebral Subluxation or misaligned vertebra in the spine put pressure on the nervous system and can reduce nerve impulses and communication by 60%. Can you imagine how well your refridgerator would function if it were plugged in 60% of the time? Probably not very well, just like our bodies wouldn’t function well if nerve impulses were reduced and communication was not 100% between the brain and the rest of your organs and tissues. Getting regular Chiropractic adjustments is key to our overall health. Our nervous system is our master control center communicating function of our entire body. When spinal/vertebral pressure is on the nervous system our body can not function as it is supposed to making Chiropractic an important part of staying healthy. When receiving regular chiropractic adjustments the ner
Research published in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health documented cases of 16 infants who were suffering with colic or acid reflux and got complete resolution of their symptoms with chiropractic care.
“Research is revealing that injuries to the upper part of the neck may be a factor in a number of disorders. These injuries lead to misalignments in the neck that may compress the spinal cord and other nerve structures in the neck. This compression leads to nerve interference and can result in a host of disorders such as colic and acid reflux.” -Dr. E Elster, Chiropractor and author of the study
Chiropractic adjustments to this part of the spine in infants with these symptoms respond well. At our office Dr. Tarnick utilizes a finger tip adjustment with the amount of gentle pressure that it takes to blanch the finger nail. The parents will hold the infant as Dr. Tarnick places his fingertips along the spine to motion the vertebra off of the nerve with the Chiropractic adjustment. Our office specializes in helping many infants and children with all sorts of health conditions because we remove nerve interference and allow the body to function properly.

There is a new study on the benefits of Chiropractic that I want to share today. This is a study in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research, 1-9, called Objective Physiologic Changes and Associated Health Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustments in Asymptomatic Subjects: A Literature Review. This study objectively measured physiologic changes and their associated health benefits subsequent to chiropractic adjustments in patient’s with no symptoms. The research revealed significant improvements in patient’s respiration, Range Of Motion, Heart Rate variability, Cardiovascular function, immune function, muscle strength, overall athletic ability once chiropractic care was initiated. They concluded that it is plausible that chiropractic care may benefit every function of the body and that Chiropractic adjustments affect the entire body. That is amazing research for the fact that these findings were in patients that didn’t have any symptoms in the first place. Take a different approach in your health, improve the wellness and functioning of your body through a Chiropractic lifestyle! Dr. Ryan Tarnick, D.C.
In 2009, a study published in the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine found that “U.S. health spending will reach $4.3 trillion in 2017.” This equates to $12 Billion per day, $500 Million per hour, and $8 Million per minute. A 2008 Congressional report published in JAMA 2009, estimated that 1/3 of health care expenditures result in zero benefit.” If you equate this 1/3 waste it comes to $1.4 Trillion per year, $4 Billion per day, $165 Million per hour, $2.7 Million per minute.” That is a lot of money going to waste. In this same article they found that “the benefits that U.S. health care delivers may not outweigh the harm it imparts.” In 2003 in the New England Journal of Medicine they found “of the more than 3.34 billion drug prescriptions filled in 2002, 1 in 4 caused an adverse effect.” I am not saying the health care system and pharmaceuticals are not needed; they are for certain ailments and diseases. But I am saying that we need to realize the way things are going now is making our country one of the sickest around. Chiropractic and Acupuncture is a much more effective treatment for many ailments and health problems than pharmaceuticals. Chiropractic and Acupuncture looks to the body’s ability to heal itself by removing nervous system interferences and balancing the body’s energy. Chiropractic and Acupuncture is much more cost effective as well. Over 7 years, people who chose Chiropractors as their primary source for health spent: 60.2% less in hospital admissions, 59% less hospital days, 62% less outpatient surgeries & procedures, and 85% less pharmaceutical costs. Chiropractic & Acupuncture saves money! Choose Chiropractic & Acupuncture!
Some adults may wonder why more and more children are starting to see chiropractors. That’s a good question and the answer is simple: whether we have a large spine or a tiny little spine, if that spine is creating nerve distress then our magnificent bodies cannot operate smoothly…
The nervous system is the ‘Master Controller’
The nervous system is the master controller of our body and if its communication channels become fuzzy, distorted or damaged then we experience all sorts of communication errors. For babies and children, this ineffective communication may play out as colic or irritability, an inability to suckle and breastfeed, poor sleep, developmental delays, digestion issues, asthma, behavioural problems, low energy, inability to concentrate, headaches, etc – the list is endless. In fact, regardless of what the end result or symptom may be, all roads lead back to the nervous system – to the body’s ability to self-regulate and function at a peak level. Continue reading
