¿Por qué recibir ajustes?

1. Es bueno para tu sistema nervioso

Éste es el sistema que controla y regula cada función de tu cuerpo.
Haldeman, S. Neurological Effects of the Adjustment. JMPT 2000; 23

2. Es bueno para tu postura

El autor de éste artículo de apoyo también sugiere que quizás necesitarías más que uno o dos ajustes si quieres reentrenar tus malos hábitos posturales.
Troyanovich et al. Structural rehabilitation of the spine and posture: rational for treatment beyond resolution of symptoms. JMPT 1998.

3. Es bueno para tu función cerebral

Hay evidencia que sugiere que los ajustes pueden mejora la vista, la capacidad lectora, la memoria, el estado de alerta y los niveles de energía.
Terret, A.G. Cerebral dysfunction: a theory to explain some of the effects of Chiropractic manipulation. Chiropractic Technique 1993; 5.

4. Mantiene las articulaciones jóvenes y bien lubricadas

Un ajuste puede restaurar la mecánica y el movimiento articular normal y ayudar a eliminar adhesiones de la articulación o el tejido cicatrizado.
Nugent-Derfus GE, et al. Continuous passive motion applied to whole joints stimulates chondrocyte biosynthesis of PRG4. Osteoarthritis Cartilage. 2007 May;15(5):566-74.

5. Es bueno para tu salud global

La medición de “niveles séricos de Tiol” demuestran que, cuanto más alto el nivel, más sano estas y, en consecuencia, con menos riesgo de enfermedad. La gente sin dolor o sin síntomas que recibían ajustes tenía altos niveles séricos de Tiol.

Why Get Adjusted?

1. It’s good for your nervous system

This is the system that controls and regulates every single function in your body.
Haldeman, S. Neurological Effects of the Adjustment. JMPT 2000; 23

2. It’s good for your posture

The author of the supporting paper also suggests that you may need more than one or two adjustments if you want to train yourself out of poor postural habits.
Troyanovich et al. Structural rehabilitation of the spine and posture: rational for treatment beyond resolution of symptoms. JMPT 1998.

3. It’s good for your brain function

There is evidence to suggest that getting adjusted may help improve vision, reading ability, memory, alertness and energy levels.
Terret, A.G. Cerebral dysfunction: a theory to explain some of the effects of Chiropractic manipulation. Chiropractic Technique 1993; 5.

4. It keeps your joints young and well lubricated

An adjustment can help restore normal joint movement and mechanics and help remove joint adhesions or scar tissue.
Nugent-Derfus GE, et al. Continuous passive motion applied to whole joints stimulates chondrocyte biosynthesis of PRG4. Osteoarthritis Cartilage. 2007 May;15(5):566-74.

5. It is good for your overall health

Measurement of ‘serum thiol levels’ reveal the higher the level, the healthier you are and therefore the lower your risk of disease. People without pain or symptoms who were getting adjusted had high serum thiol levels.
