|10 Concepts Toward a Better Understanding of Objective Straight Chiropractic
By Tom Gregory, D.C.
1. Objective Straight Chiropractic (OSC) deals with every level of human performance.
2. Every level of human performance is regulated by body chemistry. That is to say that everything you do and everything that you are is a result of your body producing chemicals.
3. Your body chemistry is regulated by the countless numbers of chemical producing organs and glands in your body.
4. It is your brain, through your nerve system, that controls, coordinates and regulates your organs and glands to produce your body chemistry at the right time and place, made in just the right quantity and quality.
5. The bones of the spine house and protect your very delicate life line: spinal cord and related nerve roots (extensions of your spinal cord that divide and re-divide to form your nerve network).
6. When one or more bones of the spine (vertebrae) lose their proper relationship with the adjacent vertebrae, instead of now protecting the nerves they now interfere with the communication between the brain and all of your chemical producing organs and glands. This situation is called a vertebral subluxation.
7. A vertebral subluxation results in a less than optimal production of your body chemistry.
8. An alteration in body chemistry results in a lessening of performance of all your bodily functions: i.e. adapting to the toxins in the environment, physical coordination at work and for sports, digesting and converting food into you, resisting and recovering from disease, maintaining emotional balance, handling stress, creating: music, art, literature, poetry & dance; learning, thinking clearly, concentrating & remembering, laughing, crying, communicating, loving, sleeping, conceiving and bearing children, making decisions, forgetting unpleasantness, enjoying a happy sex life....in short, everything you do and are. Your body MUST make chemicals in order for you to do all of these things.
9. The job of an objective straight chiropractor is to locate these vertebral subluxations and to introduce a very gentle force so your body may make the correction. This correction will allow your brain to properly communicate to, control and regulate, your chemical producing organs and glands. When your body chemistry is in balance, and ONLY when your body chemistry is in balance, can your body function properly. And when your body functions properly it has the opportunity to perform the way it was designed to perform: at peak levels.
10. Objective Straight Chiropractic helps you to get more out of life by removing a very negative factor that will, if left in place, rob you of the very talents, abilities capabilities and potentials that you have been blessed with through your genetic heritage. Objective Straight Chiropractic wants to see you be the best that you can be and get more out of life.
