What is NeuroImpulse Protocol (NIP) Chiropractic?
Contrary to common belief, chiropractic is not a treatment for back or neck pain. As a matter of fact, chiropractic is not a treatment at all. So, what IS chiropractic then?Chiropractic is based on the principle that your body has an innate intelligence that knows in the minutest detail how to heal and regulate itself. As BJ Palmer, son of the founder and the developer of chiropractic, put it: “The power that made the body, heals the body. It happens no other way”. How do we know this? Simple: your body, consisting of some 30 trillion cells, was intelligent enough to create itself out of a single cell, simply by dividing over and over and over again. The fact that you are not just a clump of cells that are all alike, shows that those cells are intelligent enough to differentiate and group together at the exact right time and in the exact right fashion to form the various organs and tissues of your body and work in perfect harmony to keep you alive and well.
So, how come that you can get ill if your body is so intelligent? In order for your body to function properly, your brain, your body’s main control organ, has to send and receive messages from every cell, tissue and organ of your body. These messages travel from the brain down the spinal cord, then out via the nerves to all the parts of your body and back the same way. Because this nervous system is very delicate, it is protected by your skull and your spine. In essence, your spine is the “information super highway” of your body with millions of messages travelling back and forth every single second. If all the levels of your spine are not moving and functioning properly, this causes interference in the messages between your brain and your body, thus affecting the function of your cells, tissues and organs, eventually leading to illness and disease. In chiropractic we use the term “vertebral subluxation complex” or “subluxation” for short to describe these dysfunctions.
So, the idea of chiropractic is really very simple: by detecting and adjusting the subluxations in your spine, we allow the innate intelligence of your body to do its job of keeping you healthy or healing you if an illness has already developed. In other words, while chiropractic is not a treatment for any illness or disease, it is a powerful way to allow your body to heal itself by removing interference from your nervous system. And by doing so, patients not only report getting rid of back and neck pain, arm and leg pain, headaches and migraines, but also a whole variety of health issues like sleep disturbance, low energy, IBS, acid re ux, heart palpitations, high blood pressure, anxiety, depression, infantile colic, bedwetting and so on. NeuroImpulse Protocol (NIP) Chiropractic, founded by Australian chiropractor Dr Neil Davies, is a relatively recent and still ongoing development in chiropractic, allowing us to detect and adjust and ever wides spectrum of nerve interference in a much more specific, hence more effective, yet very gentle way.
