“Spinology” is a non-medical philosophy and practice which seeks to help the body function at its best possible level. It does this by helping to keep the spinal bones (vertebrae) in a proper relationship with each other. This maintains normal pressure on the spinal nerves and allows the body to achieve its maximum potential.

The nerve system, which consists of the brain, spinal cord and nerves, is the control and communications network for the body. The vertebrae protect the spinal cord but when there are misalignments of the vertebrae at the facet joints (sometimes referred to as ‘slipped discs’) the pressure of the misalignment alters the environment of the nerve roots.

There is a basic law of physics that says “If you alter the structure you alter the function”. This abnormal pressure on the nerve roots alters the structure of the nerves… so it follows, their function must be altered. The function of nerves is communication to and from the brain to all body ‘parts’.

This alteration interferes with the proper flow of communications between the brain and the body’s organs and systems. It can act like a dimmer switch on a light, turning down the power so the brain is unable to fully control the normal functions of the body.

Many of the functions of the body are chemical and when there is restriction in the communication from the brain we can get an imbalance in the chemicals in any given area. This chemical imbalance is the main cause of many of our disorders.

Spinologists do not diagnose or treat specific symptoms but work with gentle spinal adjustments to clear the misalignments and allow the body to heal itself. The main philosophy of Spinology is to get your spine checked on a regular basis to help the body stay well but it has to “get well” in order for it to stay well and it is to this end that I use other therapies in conjunction with Spinology. When the disorders have healed the main philosophy really kicks in. It is just basic common sense to get your spine worked on just to stay well and not go back to the having the disorders/symptoms return. I have found once a month works well for most people.

If you go to the Disorder and Symptoms menu I have listed a large number of disorders which the body was able to heal when the misalignments were corrected, thereby removing the pressures from the nerve roots. I have also given my explanation and theories on the causes of these disorders.

I must stress all the material on the Disorder and Symptoms menu is what I have learned in my 26 years working on people, asking them questions and listening to their feedback after my work on them. It is not Spinology or the teachings of Spinology.
