The Chiropractic Premise
No doctor from this earth can cure any disease. Only God (or God's design - the human body) can.
Most of us give credit where credit isn't due. We cut our finger, we put neosporin and a band aide on it and we give credit to jelly-goo and stretchy, sticky material. We get an upset stomach, swallow pepto bismol and give credit to the pink paint we just ingested. We get diagnosed with cancer, go through chemo-radiation therapy and claim the therapy "cured cancer". We have a bout of neck pain and headaches, get adjusted by a chiropractor and say, "you fixed my neck pain and headaches!" Doctors cannot heal or cure anything! If those things listed above (neosporin, pepto bismol, radiation, chemicals, your chiropractor, etc) can heal then prove it. Put some neosporin and a band aide over the nail hole in your tire and tell me what happens..... you're about to stop reading this because you think I'm being ridiculous. You're probably thinking, "your tire cannot heal because it's not alive".
EXACTLY! LIFE is what heals the body!
And in order for us to understand this very simple principle, we need to go back to where LIFE began...
That's right - the "birds and the bees".
And when it looks like a "little blueberry" of IDENTICAL cells it SOMEHOW knows how to change, differentiate and form specialized cells with different functions. How does that happen after it started off from ONE CELL that divided into 2 identical cells, then 4, etc...? Shouldn't they all be the same? Shouldn't each cell have the SAME GENES (genetic make-up)?!? They do! So it's not a "genetic issue or problem".
So, on day 1, this little speck of life, no bigger than the size of a pencil tip... with no doctors around, no pediatricians, no one telling it what to do or how to do it, without drugs or intervention... somehow over 9 months time, this little speck of life can fully form a healthy human being! Amazing!
Do you think this intelligence that formed the baby in the mother's womb from the point of conception through birth just disappears after birth??
This baby that is 8 pounds and 20 inches long at birth is 180 pounds and 6 foot when they turn 30 years old and every other system in their body grows proportionately. How can that be if the same intelligence that formed the baby in the womb just "disappears" after birth?
Oh, I know... by chance! And by luck! By the perfect concoction of drugs, intervention, well-baby check-ups and injections right?!?
Do you think it's luck that there are two holes in your skin for your eyes to see? Do you think it's luck that the little blueberry looking collection of cells, received messages and then sent cells to your chest cavity to become your heart and started to beat with rhythm? Do you think it was luck that those heart cells didn't end up in your liver or in your intestines and cause problems? Do you think it was luck that ear cells ended up on each side of your head and specialized in hearing the outside world?
Or was there some planning?
How do the fingers know how long to grow? And why are they longer than your toes?
This is what the chiropractor calls "Innate intelligence" or the "innate wisdom". (or if you want to be politically incorrect - God)
And it's there from the time of conception, through birth and even after we are born. It doesn't leave our body until we die.
HEALTH is when ALL 70-80 trillion cells of the body are doing their job perfectly at any given time. When cells start to dys-function, then sickness and Dis-ease happens in the body.
The human body is designed to last forever (or if you want to be politically correct "80-120 years"). Our body is constantly creating NEW cells at the rate of 3 billion cells per second!
Our red blood cells last approx. 120 days, our skin cells are constantly falling off and being replaced by new cells. Liver cells replace themselves every 6-7 months. We get a new body of cells approximately every 7 years, bones and all!
But there is ONE system in the body that does not get replaced... and that's the Brain and the Spinal Cord.
"Apparently" these cells have to last you all of your life.
And now we know:
1. Brain and spinal cord are the FIRST organ to develop.
2. Brain and spinal cord are the "master control system of the body".
3. Brain and spinal cord have to last you your ENTIRE LIFE.
(The brain or "Head" of the body is the FIRST and the LAST)
So, do you think it's a good idea to take care of your Brain and Spinal Cord?
That's all chiropractic is about! Maintaining your brain and spinal cord... because you only get ONE. The rest of the cells of your body regenerate, replicate and divide... you get trillions of them, but only one brain and spinal cord.
Chiropractic is not about repairing old cells, It just wants to ensure that the new cells being made have a fighting chance to be born healthy throughout your lifetime!
How do do people feel better after chiropractic care? How can it be that eczema gets better with chiropractic care? Or childhood illness subside? Behavioral changes are made? Immune systems get stronger and breathing gets better?
With all the chiropractic testimonies, you'd be sure to think that chiropractic can CURE just about anything. But you are wrong! Chiropractic CANNOT and DOES NOT claim to cure or treat any disease, sickness or condition!

A multitude of electronic devices cause neck pain and tingling hands. Personally I have a smart phone, ipad and a laptop. I am a non-techie person and find it rare to not find my devices acting like the world’s best temptress. The more I use them, the more my neck hurts. I can’t quite imagine what it must be like for the techie people who find not only their work but hobbies revolving around the computer and devices.
The number one key to avoiding neck pain and headaches caused by your electronic devices is to take frequent breaks from using them. In a perfect world, you should only stare at a screen for a maximum of 15 minutes before you move around and do something else. While this might not be realistic during the work day, simply do your best to take frequent breaks and make sure to follow this rule at home.
My number two tip for combating pain caused by electronic devices is to get out in the middle of the day and do something active. If it simply means leaving the office to get lunch, go on a walk or take time for a workout, taking a break from sitting down is critical. It helps your body feel better, helps you manage your stress and gives you breaks in your day to allow your mind to be creative.
As for specific device tips, if you are typing emails on ipads, keep them short and don’t use your hands as you would a traditional keyboard. The hunt and peck method will make your keyboarding teacher cringe but your wrists and elbows will thank you. If you spend a lot of time reading on your kindle, you will also feel better if you turn it horizontally and put it in landscape mode. If you love reading and it is your main hobby, I would encourage you to get the giant kindle versus the purse size one that I have. It’s easier to hang on to, will strain your elbows and wrists less and is easier to prop up against something to see from a distance. When it comes to smart phones, I would suggest evaluating how much time you spend looking down at it and if its really that important that it can’t wait until you get to your computer. Don’t read long documents on your smart phone, don’t respond to long emails, and limit your gaming time.
The most important thing to remember is that when you are using your devices, you aren’t interacting with other human beings and forming healthy relationships. Don’t let your devices come between you and the people in your life that you enjoy and love. On top of that, while your devices might make things convenient for you, they are also keeping you from being active and healthy. It’s tough to get exercise if you won’t pry yourself away from the screen.
If you find yourself with neck pain, headaches or tingling hands, you probably have nerves that are getting irritated. Call our Elkhorn, WI chiropractic office today to schedule an appointment.
