Calendar/Newsletter for December

0566051001637164356.jpg

I am so thankful for so many things this holiday season, but especially thankful to help all the wonderful patients I get to care for each day.

What makes December so special for you? Is it the Holidays? Is it the chance to see family? Exchanging gifts with loved ones? The changes in the weather? I’m sure everyone has a reason for the season being so special to them.

I find it special, for many different reasons. It is a time for me to share with family, friends and loved ones. I live in a great community and have the best patients. I am truly blessed to care for each and every one of you and your families. I am grateful to have the opportunity to serve you.

I wish you all a holiday season filled with love and happiness.

Sensory Motor Integration & Chiropractic

SENSORY MOTOR INTEGRATION FACTS

Muscle weakness, joint problems, lack of coordination, lack of balance, loss of grip strength and overall weakness are signs that a person’s motor and sensory function is being impaired.

Chiropractic care has been shown to be beneficial in helping people restore balance, hand-to-eye coordination, and motor skills that can help them function on their own and improve their day to day lives along with less pain. Better spinal alignment has been shown to result in improved balance, better coordination and enhanced motor function and strength. Another benefit of chiropractic care is what’s called improved sensory-motor coordination or integration. This refers to how the body responds to information taken in by the senses.

As an example of this, your eyes see the distance between your hand and the table, and your body responds to that information by extending the hand far enough to reach a glass on the table, while also avoiding hitting the hand on the table itself. Your senses communicate or coordinate with your motor functions this way every time you move.

Information taken in by the senses is relayed back from the brain to your muscles, joints, and limbs is also relayed up and down the spine.

When the spine is out of alignment from structural spinal shifts, these structural shifts can lead to obstruction of the nerves and it is this obstruction, called vertebral subluxations, that chiropractors correct.

This incoordination of information can be one of the results of obstruction. One might become clumsy, or lack proper motor control and coordination. You may misjudge the height of stairs or misread how close you are to a door, and suffer slips and falls.

Spinal alignment through chiropractic care can often create a better, clearer pathway for the information taken in by the senses and relayed by the brain by removing those obstructions.

CASE STUDY

This study describes improvement in hand grip strength in 100 patients. These subjects all underwent chiropractic care to reduce or correct structural spinal shifts. The chiropractor examined each of the 100 subjects and found decreased grip strength and structural shifts in their necks. Muscle and nerve testing confirmed these findings.

These structural shifts can lead to obstruction of the nerves and it is the obstruction, called vertebral subluxations, that chiropractors correct.

The chiropractor tested the muscle strength of these subjects before and after chiropractic care and noted significant increases in muscle strength following chiropractic care.

The study’s author called for additional research to investigate the clinical implications of chiropractic care on muscle strength and motor function. Most people consider chiropractic care beneficial for things like neck and back pain but this study is among a growing number of studies showing that chiropractic care has much broader effects on the functioning of the nervous system - not just in how people feel but in how they function.
