Title: Techno Granny, Five Ways Chiropractic Care Can Improve Your Health
Time: 05/14/2012 
Episode Notes: Many people do not understand all the benefits that a Chiropractic Doctor can provide or how they can actually help improve your overall health.  Many people still look on chiropractors and chiropractic treatment with suspicion and misunderstanding.  In addition a comprehensive chiropractor will often discover health problems or conditions that are outside their realm of training. When this happens, your chiropractor will refer you to a medical professional who can help you deal with these needs, therefore helping ensure your continued good health. Listen in as Chiropractor, Dr. Dan Turo discusses five specific ways that chiropractic care can optimize your health.

Talking points:
1.      Chiropractic care improves nervous system function.
The alignment and motion of your spine is directly related to the function of your nervous system. Your nerve system is made up of your brain, spinal cord, and delicate nerves that coordinate every function in the body. It is your body’s conductor and without it you could not be in tune. The nervous system is so important that it’s messages are protected by bone, which are 24 segments that make up your spine. If you spine loses its alignment or motion, known as a spinal subluxation, then this places increased stress on the delicate nerve system, which can lead to poor health and function. Chiropractors seek to restore spinal alignment and motion, reduce stress on the nerve system, and increase overall body performance and function.
2.      Chiropractic reduces oxidative stress, which has been linked to increased disease.
Oxidative stress is a natural process in the body that occurs as a result of our metabolism. If you place a piece of metal outside, what happens over time? It rusts or oxidizes. This oxidation also takes place in the body, but at a much slower rate. The amount of oxidative stress is dependent on many environmental factors but also largely related to nervous system function. It has been shown that long term chiropractic care increases serum thiol levels, which is a measure of DNA repair and overcoming oxidative stress on the body. (Kent, JVSR-2005)
3.      Long term chiropractic care has been linked to decreased hospitalizations and prescription medications.
A study in May 2007 that came out of the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics showed that individuals who used chiropractors as their primary care provider has a 60.2% decrease in hospital admissions, 59% decrease in hospital days, and 85% decrease in pharmaceutical costs compared with individuals who used conventional medicine as their primary health care provider.
4.      Chiropractic care is safe, gentle, and effective for many childhood health challenges.
Asthma, allergies, ear infections, and colic are common in many children in our country today, but they are far from normal. Chiropractic adjustments can be customized for the size of the infant or child and are normally no more forceful than the amount of pressure used to check for the ripeness of fruit. With these gentle adjustments, nerve function is improved and health can be restored without drugs or surgery. Many children under chiropractic care also experience less frequent colds. When you restore nerve system function, the health possibilities and potential are infinite.
5.      Chiropractic alleviates pain and increases sports and recreational performance.
Pain is something every human experiences at one point in their life. Pain is very useful to tell us when there is a problem. If you place your hand on a hot stove or step on a nail, it is pain that begins the reflex to remove your hand or foot from the source of pain. However, chronic pain may be experienced from an injury that never had the chance to heal properly. With the restoration of nerve function through spinal adjustments, pain may be decreased. Whether you are at work, on the sports fields, or playing an instrument; everyone functions better without constant pain.
