Vertebra of the Month T3

Vertebra of the Month T3

T3 is the third vertebra in the thoracic spine also known as the upper back.  The nerve that comes from T3 innervates the lungs, bronchial tubes, pleura, chest, and breast.  A misalignment of T3 could cause the following conditions:

  • Bronchitis
  • Pleurisy
  • Pneumonia
  • Congestion
  • Influenza

If you know someone who suffers from any of these conditions, have them call our office for a consultation today at 918-861-4748.

Studies have shown that your immune system is increased by 48% for the next 24-48 hours post adjustments.

“X’s, O’s and Time”

“X’s, O’s and Time”

“The Packers never lost a game…we just ran out of time.” — Vince Lombardi.

Coach Lombardi’s quote sums up his unwavering belief in his team’s ability to win every game if given enough time to execute their winning game plan.  Chiropractors hold a similar, unwavering belief in your body’s innate ability to heal.

The 6th Principle in Chiropractic states, “There is no process which does not require time,” including the healing process.  BJ Palmer (the developer of Chiropractic) believed that given enough time and a clear nerve system, the body could heal itself in just about any situation.  In his mind, the innate wisdom of the body had the potential to win any healing game if just given a chance.  This is the foundation of all successful Chiropractic experiences.

If you’ve been under Chiropractic care for some time and see only minimal results, don’t give up.  The power that made your body designed all the plays needed to get you healthy and whole again.  It won’t lose the game if you provide enough time on the clock.

Clark’s Power Problem

Clark’s Power Problem

Clark Griswold stands with bated breath and extension cord in hand as a childlike giddiness overtakes him.  The family drum roll commences, he makes the anticipated electrical connection and VOILA…nothing happens.

Clark has a power problem.  Although the extension cords are all connected and each Christmas light has been inspected with precision, he’s still not connected to the source.  It isn’t until his wife ‘adjusts’ the switch in the garage and turns the MAIN Power on that the light show begins.  She’d make a good Chiropractor!

If your wiring is connected and your body parts have all been dutifully inspected by the best doctors in the world, you still won’t function to your potential if you’re not connected 100% to your source…the Life-sustaining Power that flows from your Nerve System.  Make sure you and your family stay connected to it with regular Chiropractic care during this bustling holiday season.

Toxins and Tumbles and Thoughts

Toxins and Tumbles and Thoughts

In the classic scene in The Wizard of Oz, we find Dorothy, Toto, Tin Man, and Scarecrow timidly walking through the woods on the lookout for the three dreadful threats conjured up in their imaginations – lions and tigers and bears, oh my…  In Chiropractic, the three big threats we warn patients about (the big three that cause Subluxations) are physical trauma, chemical trauma, and auto-suggestion (thought) trauma.

According to the founder of Chiropractic, DD Palmer, approximately 20% of nervous system interference can be attributed to physical injuries or poisons from outside the body… like a slip, fall, or overdose.  The remaining 80% can be traced back to persistent negative emotions or self-talk that build tension in your muscles, pull vertebrae out of alignment, and freeze your nerve system in its tracks – rendering you stiff like a Tin Man, foggy-brained like a Scarecrow and overly sensitive like a Cowardly Lion.

A Chiropractor can locate your Subluxations, restore normal spinal alignment, and reduce nerve interference when necessary. But it’s your responsibility to, 1. Be cognizant when any of the big three “T’s” attacks you and 2. Get adjusted ASAP so worse problems don’t manifest. Doing so will keep you and your loved ones on the yellow brick road of health.


Thank you for the referrals of your friends and family, it is the greatest compliment we could receive.

Remember to keep your spine healthy.  It is easier to keep a spine healthy than it is to treat an unhealthy spine. Regular maintenance visits can ensure that your spine is in order and working properly.

Condition of the Month:  Suppressed Immune System

Condition of the Month: Suppressed Immune System

Symptoms

  • Fever
  • Muscle aches and pains
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Nausea
  • Upset stomach or diarrhea
  • Nasal drainage
  • Headache

During the flu epidemic of 1917-1918, both chiropractors and osteopaths noticed that their patients had a lower fatality rate, 0.25% than the medical profession at 5-6%. The conclusion of a paper written in 1919 was that subluxations suppressed the immune system and that removing them assisted the immune function. Now newer research shows that white blood cells increase with chiropractic adjustments. So the next time you want to cancel your appointment because you’re too sick, remember a chiropractic adjustment is just what the doctor ordered.
