January is known for being Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. What is Cervical Cancer? It is a malignant tumor of the cervix, the lowermost part of the uterus. It is a slow-growing cancer that may not have symptoms but can be found with regular Pap tests.
You are probably wondering what does Cervical Cancer have to do with Chiropractic care. A lot actually. Disruptions in function in the sacral region of the spine could have a direct relationship to your vulnerability to cervical cancer and other reproductive issues.
Alignment problems and nerve impingement in this area could inhibit these organs’ ability to maintain and heal themselves properly, opening the door for cancer to develop.
It is also worth noting that many cancer and cancer- causing agents are thwarted systemically by your immune system. Even the HPV virus which is one of the main causes of Cervical Cancer can often be defeated by the body before it has a chance to cause cancer. This is only possible, however, when your immune system and other physical systems are working well and optimal physical function requires optimal nerve signaling. Chiropractic evaluations and adjustments can help normalize your body’s internal communications, allowing your immune system to provide stronger resistance and defeat many cancer before they can emerge.
Our goal of Chiropractic is to treat the origin of a condition, not the symptoms of a condition. Chiropractors get to the root of the problem; why does this condition exist? This approach is very different than that of a medical doctor. Today’s medicine treats symptoms that are associated with certain conditions, whereas chiropractors figure out where those symptoms originate from and treat the underlying condition.
