Every tissue and cell is controlled by nerve impulses traveling from your brain to every part of your body. In this way, the nervous system controls every function of your body: breathing, heartbeat, digestion, resistance to disease, and muscle control.Nerves can become pinched or irritated as they travel from the brain to the different organs. This irritation can disturb normal function throughout the body causing many diseases and pains. Chiropractors work with the bones, muscles, ligaments, and discs, primarily of the spine to remove irritation of the nerves that may cause the problem. The reason Chiropractic works so well is that it removes the cause of the problem. It does not just cover up the symptoms. The US.Court of Appeals and the US. Supreme Court agreed with the efficacy of Chiropractic in the landmark case of Wilk vs. AMA. US. Court of Appeals Judge Getzendanner rejected the AMA’s “medical patient case” defense, citing scientific studies from the Workmans’ Compensation Bureau which proved that “chiropractic care was twice as effective as medical care in relieving many painful conditions of the neck and back,as well as related musculo-skeletal problems.” An article in the Chiropractic Journal notes that in 1994, the Federal Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) approved the efficacy of spinal adjustment. A major study in 1993 called The Effectiveness and Cost-Effectiveness of Chiropractic Management of Low-Back Pain, also known as the Manga Report funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health overwhelmingly supported the efficacy, safety,scientific validity , and cost-effectiveness of Chiropractic for low-back pain.
