Best Practices of Healthcare with Chiropractic Treatments

Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD) is a critical issue, which can affect the skull, shoulder, arms, and the neck regions of the human body. It is a result of the misalignment between the skull, neck, and the spinal cord. It can lead to many problems like migraine, jaw pain, toothache, dental misalignment, dental damages, numbness in arms and shoulders, and other forms of pain.

The problems start with the defective temporomandibular organ that is located just beneath your ear. Put your index finger into your ear slightly and move your lower jaw as if you are chewing food. Then you can feel the movement of an organ on your finger. That is the temporomandibular organ.

Benefits of Chiropractic

The temporomandibular organ (TMO) is indirectly connected to the spine through the neck bone. Any negative changes on the spine can affect the TMO considerably. Hence, the chiropractors opine that treatments to the spine can effectively solve the TMD within a short span of time.

I have been associated with the TMD and Chiropractic treatments for decades. Earlier, I used to work on conventional physiotherapy and modern medical practices. The treatments did produce results in solving the TMD to a considerable extent. But the only problem was recurrence (relapse) of the original TMD after a few months. Then I started an analysis of the limitations of conventional medication and therapy on TMD.

  • They only suppress the symptoms for a specific period
  • The misalignment remains as it is
  • The medicines are only painkillers and not TMD healers

Then I started a search for the other forms of treatments which can prove to be effective for the TMD. After four years of intensive research, I came across Chiropractic.  I was curious and skeptic about the system. My idea about medications was something which worked by entering the internal parts of the human body where TMD had its symptoms.

Miracles of Chiropractic

As I started exploring the treatment and therapeutic methods of chiropractic, I could find a miraculous connection with the core of the human body called the spine. It has several sections, starting from the cervical part to the tailbone. Each section has thousands of nerve connections. They connect to the various muscles, joints, ligaments, and limbs in the human body.

The spine is like a centralized control system for more than 99% of the human body parts. So, it is possible to heal the pain and disorders in the human body by adjusting the spinal cord sections. Chiropractic has hundreds of adjustment, manipulation, and massaging procedures for every part on the spine.

Chiropractors can understand the various types of physiological structures of the human body. They also know the structure of the spine sections. Experience and research have shown the connectivity between the spine and human organs. So, the chiropractors can heal and recover the patients from the TMD problems within a short time.


The TMD problems can start with the slightest misalignment between the upper and lower jaw. Close your upper and lower jaw and see the alignment of your teeth in the mirror now. Is there any symptom of slightest misalignment?

Spending Wisely On Proper Healthcare

The cost that people incur in getting proper health care has to be seen as the preventive cost to getting sick or ill. If more people take to a healthy diet and a proper chemical free food intake, it would mean lesser cost on taking preventive steps towards repairing oneself.  When it comes to what people have as food, it is not limited to the leafy vegetables or the meat that people eat. But, to the very source of natural water that we drink all the time.

It would be proper to examine in detail the components of good health as defined by what we eat and drink.


Eighty percentage of what people are is basically water and nothing more. Thus this largest component of the body needs replenishing all the time. A person can be assured of the best possible health if he does is just to get the water intake correct the first time and every time.

It might be a comforting thought that water is the single largest component on earth but if it is not clean enough to be drunk and used for cooking, then the very source of the water becomes suspect.  Today, companies take the most effort to have clean drinking water for use. This brings to sharp focus the need for water to be sustainable to life as a whole.


A healthy breakfast

Few people can value the need for a healthy and wholesome breakfast every day.  Since it is the first meal of the day, it is meant to be the most important one as well. A good breakfast removes the lack of food since the previous evening and fuels the body further on towards the rest of the day.

It is best to have a breakfast as early as possible. Although the puritans recommend a breakfast that is rich in proteins and the likes, the best breakfasts are those that have a sufficient mixture of all that is good in nature.  Even the heavy fats can be included in the breakfast as it helps to provide a slow burn of food all the time.

Getting around places

Most people would agree that exercise is an essential component of people’s health and well being.  Thus it helps to move around as far as possible rather than use the more convenient method of traveling by taxi or the metro. Here it is essential to have time at hand as it would help to keep fit and at the same time move on from point A to point B.

Maintaining a health regimen is the start to good and quality life all the time. That does not require us to be sports men all the while but as active people that try to involve themselves in some activity or the other.


It is never enough to just fill the stomach or have a drink of water. The most essential part to these is to keep to a healthy lifestyle that acts as an insurance against poor health.
