Commonsense Chiropractic Care
Dr. Lee DeBlon
Is it true that mid-back spinal misalignments can cause pain and problems in your stomach, kidneys and affect your breathing?
The short answer is yes.
Spinal misalignments of the mid-back area; between your shoulder blades primarily, can cause pain through your kidneys or stomach, affect your breathing, cause chest pain and mimic a variety of different problems. To make matters worse, one must understand that the mid-back area of your spine also attaches to your ribs. When the mid-back misaligns it always involves your ribs. This will then affect the nerves that exit the spine that help regulate your heart rate, breathing, digestion, body temperature, blood pressure, and blood supply to your heart, lungs, kidneys, intestines, stomach, reproductive organs, liver, spleen, pancreas, glands: even your eyes, ears and brain.
Uninterrupted communication between your nerves and the organs of your body is absolutely essential for resistance to disease, body function and overall health.
Chiropractic is a system of health care that locates these areas of unnatural movement or locking up of your mid-back area. Chiropractors call these areas of misalignment or locking up, “Vertebral Subluxation“. It not only affects the spine, your nerves and the organs they go to, but it also causes painful muscle spasm between the ribs like a severe stabbing pain. Some Chiropractors will refer to Vertebral Subluxation as the “Silent Killer” because the majority of people don’t realize that the pain is not the cause of the problem but the symptom. They treat the symptom never getting to the root cause. Once the cause (spinal misalignment) is located and corrected then the body can heal itself and the symptoms, whatever they may be, can settle down and usually go away. By correcting Subluxations, Chiropractic has become the largest drugless healthcare in the world.
