How Straight Chiropractors Cure The Patients?

The basic theory of chiropractic is that "subluxations" are the cause of most medical issues. A "subluxation" is a misalignment of the spine that allegedly interferes with nerve signals from the brain. Chiropractors believe that by adjusting the misalignments they can thereby restore the nerve signals and cure health problems.

The inventors of the straight strategy are D. D. Palmer and B. J. Palmer. In 1890s, D. D. Palmer started this new approach that is broadly defined as chiropractic care.

Chiropractic Can Be Classified Into Three Main Categories:

  • Straight
  • Mixer
  • Reform
In this section, we would try to understand the job function of Straight chiropractors. Straight chiropractors follow the philosophical principles set forth by D.D. and B.J. Palmer, and adhere to the metaphysical definitions and vitalistic qualities. Straight chiropractors believe that vertebral subluxation leads to interference with an "Innate Intelligence" exerted via the human nervous system and is the primary risk factor for several diseases. This interference interrupts the proper flow of Innate Intelligence from "above, down, inside, and out" to the organ to which it travels. As a result, the human body experiences "disease" or disharmony which results in loss of health. They do not diagnose or treat diseases - only detect and cure subluxations. Going by the facts, only about 15 percent of all chiropractors can be called "straight" chiropractors.

The Scope Of Straight Chiropractors Is Limited To:

  • The anatomy of the spine and immediate articulations
  • The condition of vertebral subluxation
  • Addressing vertebral subluxations
  • Educating patients and advising them about subluxations
According to straight chiropractors, the medical diagnosis of patient complaints is unnecessary for chiropractic treatment. So they are mainly concerned with the detection and correction of vertebral subluxation via adjustment and do not "mix" other types of therapies. Their approach is metaphysical in nature and they prefer to use traditional chiropractic lexicon terminology that involves spinal analysis, subluxation detection to name a few. They prefer to remain separate and distinct from mainstream health care. This kind of Chiropractic treatment is also called subluxation that is based on the concept that misalignment causes various health conditions or diseases that patients suffer from. According to this theory, a misaligned spine or vertebral disc exerts pressure on the nerve or nerve root, arising from that area in the spine, which results in pain and various health conditions. In straight chiropractic, these misalignments are set right and the nerves are relieved off the pressure, thus triggering healing in the patient.
