What Is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts which is based upon the understanding that good health depends, in part, upon a normally functioning nervous system (especially the spine, and the nerves extending from the spine to all parts of the body). Chiropractic stresses the idea that the cause of many disease processes begins with the body's inability to adapt to its environment. It looks to address these diseases not by the use of drugs and chemicals, but by locating and adjusting an area of the spinal system which is functioning improperly.


The Chiropractic Technique used at Palmer Chiropractic & Wellness Centre uses a very gentle approach called Network Spinal Analysis and Koren Specific Technique. (KST)

What is Network Spinal Analysis-NSA?
Fast becoming leading-edge body/mind health care, Network Spinal Analysis, or NSA, is an exciting and new development in Chiropractic associated with long-term benefits in health, emotional state and quality of life. It involves tapping into your bodyís innate capacity to heal and develop more effective means for optimizing health and wellness. It is a safe, gentle and effective approach for everyone, regardless of age or health. It is believed that in the future this type of health care will play a vital and primary role in the prevention of illness and the optimization of well being.


Recent research findings
A large study of more than 2, 800 people receiving NSA has demonstrated a high degree of health changes, emotional and lifestyle improvement for those under care. In addition, the longer the care, the more dramatic the changes.

What makes this approach different?
NSA specifically teaches your brain and body how to increasingly develop better ways of releasing tension and improve the overall efficiency of the nervous system.

How does it work?
NSA utilizes adjustments or gentle forces over the spine that in turn changes its vibration tone (or oscillation). It is believed that the brain reciprocates by initiating its own similar response. This causes a healthier link between the brain and body. Studies currently underway are showing a 20-30% improvement in brain efficiency, helping position NSA as a leading edge body/mind discipline.


A gentle force is applied
A gentle force or contact is applied over specified areas along the spine, which create tissue oscillation. Each contact is also referred to as an adjustment. Different adjustments create different tissue responses and reciprocal brain changes. New and more efficient channels of communications are created between the brain and body.

NSA adjustments are applied to spinal tissue associated with tension around the spinal cord (the meningeal sheath) and misalignments of vertebrae referred to as spinal subluxations.

Why the spine?
The spine houses most of the nerves that control body function, which affect the health and status of most of our internal organs and tissues, head, trunk and limbs. The spinal cord and its overlying meningeal sheath are also believed to be associated with a considerable amount of subconscious emotional tension.


What are the differences between NSA, and other therapies?
Unlike many therapies such as massage, cranial-sacral, spinal manipulation etc., NSA, is the only known approach specifically aimed at teaching the body how to develop its own healing strategies. In addition, the length of care has a direct effect on health and wellness changes. Patients report improvements in their ability to cope with stress, relationships and their ability to make intelligent choices. Besides these changes, people report improvements in joint and spinal flexibility and diminished pain.

Level one is associated with one oscillatory spinal center, Level two, is associated with refinements to vertebral alignment (subluxations) and a double oscillating spine (two separate spinal regions which oscillate in a synchronistic manner). Level three of care is associated with the patientís ability to consciously align their spine and direct the wave through specified regions. A third oscillating region also develops in the spine. Each level is associated with and increasing ability of the nervous system to optimize strategies for the dissipation of tension and the positive integration of stress for individual growth and peak performance.

What other types of responses are common with NSA?
As the mind and body release tension it may involve a myriad of physical, emotional and chemical responses. These are often short lived and are accompanied by positive emotional and physical benefits.

Studies are now in progress examining the long-term benefits of care, and changes in brain and spinal cord function. In addition, there is a growth interest by psychologists, physiologists, biomathematicians and bioengineers on the overall mechanisms and benefits of NSA.

In summary
NSA is an exciting new Chiropractic development benefiting overall quality of life both physically and mentally. For more information on how Network Spinal Analysis can play a vital role in your health care and that of your family and children, please contact us!
