Stress Specific Adjustments
Chiropractic adjustments address the triad of how the body works: Mental, Emotional, and Physical. Moving well, being out of pain, and feeling well so very obviously affect one’s mental/emotional state. Think about it. All you need is a cold to throw off your mood and productivity of a day. Do you really think we need ‘flu shots’ or is it a way to try to control feeling bad, even though it harms our body’s immune system response?
Koren Specific technique is an example of a system that addresses the mental/emotional aspect of the human body. It is a technique that holds great interest to Dr. Janelle because she naturally treats that way. Currently, the doctors have provided a safe, professional environment in which to be adjusted. Likewise, they do not shy away from any information that you may need to tell us regarding stress, life, or concerns. Lastly, should you need a referral to any other specialist to co-care, they will provide one?
To ‘test’ a certain area of the body before it is adjusted is common in chiropractic. This can be donethrough a gross or specific range of motion, skin tests, functional testing, or by discussing an issue.All of these ways of testing produce an actual neurological response in the system that helps better identify how, if, and why a joint of the body should be adjusted.
Koren and muscle testing are one commonly known way to check if the body is out of alignment. To simplify it, keen observation, discernment, and the power of observation are needed. That is why one chooses a doctor in the first place because they have an objective, non-emotional way to assess the body.
Lastly, an adjustment is performed. In Koren, an Arthostim is used. (See Koren website) See more how to boxes to look at the ways BE Well Chiropractic adjusts their patients.
After the first adjustment, with any technique, some patients feel very sleepy and some feel euphoria. It all depends on your body’s individual response. It would be akin to having never run before, it is very exciting the first time. This is not how the body always responds. As the body is retrained, it first must regain function before it starts feeling well consistently; that is real change.
Dr. Tedd Koren speaks about something that is very common during healing: Retracing. “People have many layers. After the correction of what the body is showing at the time, older injuries, older distortions, older subluxations and older symptoms (both physical and mental/emotional) may surface to release. The release and healing of old injuries are known as ‘retracing’ and is usually part of the healing process. On occasion, patients have reported ‘cleansing’ symptoms such as diarrhea, pus, mucus, headache, fever, etc. as toxins leave the body. These symptoms are usually temporary. It is helpful to be told if unusual symptoms arise. Sometimes an area is so weak and the distortion so extensive that a segment put in place may not stay in position and may need correcting again”. We call that ‘adaptation’ and is a common phenomenon when building muscle or reducing weight during exercise.
