(Newswire.net — July 24, 2017) Port St Lucie, FL — A top chiropractor in Port St Lucie, Florida recently made claims that modern day Chiropractic Care has been clouded with misconceptions, misunderstanding, misinformation and half-truths. In a recent interview, Dr. Bill Jensen says that innovations in science and research have given us a better understanding about chiropractic care. He stated, “A lot of things evolve overtime as we learn and unwrap different things around science and research.”

Dr. Jensen explained that most people believe a common misconception about how diseases and dysfunctionalities are caused by misalignments on the spine. Historically, chiropractors were taught that vertebral misalignments caused irritation and compression of nerves, which then created dysfunction or disease to wherever those nerves traveled.

“It is still a possibility but only at a statistical rate of 5% of the time”, he added.

Due to innovations in science and research, Dr. Bill Jensen and his colleagues at Premier Wellness Centers have discovered that 95% of the time there is more neurology involved, not just the nerve roots. There are neurons called mechanoreceptors found in muscles, ligaments, discs and other soft tissues primarily around the spine. When vertebrae in the spine get displaced, the mechanoreceptors are triggered which sends a stress response to the brain.

According to Dr. Bill Jensen, stress response is initially not a big issue regarding our physical health. However, long term it can create devastating effects to our health affecting every single organ and tissue within our body.

The award-winning chiropractor also clarified exactly how chiropractic care makes people feel better. In another segment of his interview, he revealed there are both physical and chemical reasons behind it. Physically, pain is caused when tension is starting to build up in the spine due to muscle spasms and inflammation in the muscles, in the tissues and potentially the nerve roots. Chiropractors will free and loosen these areas by careful adjustments in the spine or other affected areas. The pain will be reduced from the procedures as a result.

From a chemical standpoint, when the spine is being adjusted, a rush of endorphins and enkephalins are excreted in the body which are the body’s natural painkillers. There is also another chemical reaction that occurs inside the body. It’s the corresponding neurological effect on the brain. Areas of the brain will be shutdown, causing cortisol and catecholamine to be excreted. This will cause the inflammation to subside, generally making the body systemically less inflamed and less tense.

“It also reduces your heart rate, respiratory rate and gives a calm sense of well-being,” he added.

About Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic Care is essentially an all-natural form of health care. It scientifically uses pin-pointed spinal adjustments to correct misalignments and restore proper function to the nervous system which will help your body to naturally heal itself without the help of surgery and drugs. Instead of conventional drugs and surgery it uses calculated and precise force to be applied to a designated part of the spine which initiates regular and normal nerve transmissions helping your body to recuperate and heal on its own.
