While the spine is a crucial part of Chiropractic, the entire body can benefit from Chiropractic adjustments. In this episode, you'll find out:
--That 95% of patients who need a spinal adjustment also need additional adjustments in other areas of the body. (But not all Chiropractors adjust extremities.)
--The story of how Dr. Prather helped a friend with TMJ who had actually tried to commit suicide because he was suffering so badly from jaw pain.
--Why the jaw has a direct connection to the brain's pain centers as well as the brain's emotional centers, And the unique adjusting system Dr. Prather has developed for adjusting the jaw and taught to other Chiropractors.
--Why patients will often need their head and jaw adjusted before getting relief from a shoulder adjustment.
--How Chiropractic adjustments, Acupuncture, and Physical Therapy can help prevent shoulder surgery (almost 90% of the time) or make the surgery go more smoothly.
--Why the elbow is one of the easiest joints to adjust and one of the best in holding the adjustment for patients with Tennis elbow.
--That many Carpal Tunnel patients (who even had the surgery with no results) have been misdiagnosed and actually have a Palmaris Longus Syndrome that responds well to adjustments of the bones in the wrist.
--Why a Eustachean Tube chiropractic adjustment (basically a tug on the ear) can help with ear infections, tinnitus, and upper respiratory infections.
--Why hip surgery can be delayed or even postponed with Chiropractic adjustments. (And how patients who had hip surgery can find relief from an adjustment, too.)
--Plus more on how Chiropractic adjustment can benefit ribs, knees, feet, ankles, and more.
