This type of question is a very common question and leads to A LOT of confusion. Let me explain:
“Does chiropractic fix sciatica? My friend said that you cured her.”
Here is the honest answer: NO! Chiropractic does not fix sciatica. YOU are the one that cures or fixes sciatica, or anything for that matter.
At Adjust, we understand that we are not the ones that cure or fix any illness, symptom, or condition (with one exception). You have within you a healing ability that as a doctor, I have ZERO control over. The only “help” that I give as a chiropractor is by removing interference to this intelligent healing ability you possess.
So, will sciatica be cured or fixed if your subluxations are removed? Quite honestly, it happens very often, however I really can’t say for sure! However, if I find a subluxation in your spine, which means that there is interference to the natural healing capabilities that you possess, and I remove this subluxation, you will have the best chance possible to heal. That is what we do. That is what makes our profession unique, and that is exactly why people with all types of conditions come to us at Adjust.
THE HEALING MECHANISM NO ONE TALKS ABOUT
All diseases, all conditions, all symptoms have a better opportunity to resolve if the interference is removed to this healing mechanism within you. For years many have struggled to name “it”. Many professions know and testify that “it” exists, however have no name for “it”. Health professions worldwide constantly see the result of it’s work, the healing that occurs with no help from practitioner. This is what continues to confuse almost every health profession, with one exception: Chiropractic.
Chiropractors call “it”: INNATE INTELLIGENCE.
Intelligence= “It” knows how to heal you better than anything man has ever created. Knowing how much drug to place where, and when to reabsorb it. It knows how much oxygen to place into the blood, it knows what to do with that Twinkie you ate for snack yesterday. So we call it “intelligent” because of our understanding of it’s information and instructions it seems to carry out that we still fail to comprehend. Luckily, we don’t have to!
WHAT WE KNOW AND DON’T KNOW
We do not need to know exactly how or where Innate Intelligence is doing it’s work. We just simply need to remove interference from the impulse it sends through the message highway we call the nervous system. When this interference is removed, Innate Intelligence is able to express it’s wishes for the betterment of it’s host: you.
So, next time wondering if chiropractic can cure or fix a disease or a symptom, remember that chiropractors work WITH Innate Intelligence so that the body may perform at it’s peak. This is the condition that we wish to create in every individual that we care for: A reduction of interference so that your Innate Intelligence may perform it’s actions without obstruction.
