What you need to know…

Pain Killer Hands treatment is an Alternative & Holistic medicine treatment, which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. In the preservation and restoration of health.

Every engineer, architect, builder and carpenter knows the importance of a proper foundation in constructing a building, for this insures durability and long life. Any slight change or shift in the foundation can cause a great amount of deviation in the top part of the structure and, perhaps, ultimately, its collapse.

This is a great parallel to our health and specifically the structure of our body. The musculoskeletal system (muscles and bones) makes up the framework for our bodies. The nervous system helps to determine the tone of these muscles, which position and stabilize joints. All three of these elements working in harmony determine our posture and ability to function. When one of these aspects is out of alignment the other two are impacted.

One of the important things is the alignment and function of the neuromusculoskeletal system (that’s nerves, muscles and bones). Spinal alignment has a critical impact on how the muscles and even the nerves of your body will function. If spinal alignment is off then other joints including hips, knees, feet shoulders, etc. will have to adapt to these challenges. This can create stress states that will create trouble over time. Usually these problems aren’t apparent immediately, but over time the alignment problems can introduce increased stress on a joint that you might want to use later for something other than compensating for poor posture or alignment.

PKH always inspect spine to look for potential issues with misalignment, fixation, and joint irregularity but these misalignment, fixations and joint irregularities can also be present in the extremities. The extremities they mean the numerous joints present in the body including the jaw, ribs, shoulders, elbows, wrist, fingers, hand, hip, knee, ankle, toes, and the foot. These problems in the extremities may also lead to chronic spinal issues.

Spinal Health and Well-Being

No part of your body escapes the dominance of your nervous system. Improper function of the spine & skeletal system due to slight misalignments can cause poor health, even in areas far removed from the spine and spinal cord itself. Misalignments can also reduce the ability of your body to adapt to its ever-changing environment. Even the slightest malfunction of your spine may alter the regular transmission of nerve impulses, preventing that portion of your body from responding optimally.

The body’s foundation is formed by the pelvic girdle. When this bony structure consisting of hip bones and the lower bones of the back is level, there will be maximum balance and stability in the spinal column. When the pelvic girdle or any of the vertebrae (bones making up the spinal column) become tilted or rotated out of their proper position, dramatic changes may occur in the body.

These misalignments can cause pressure on the discs that separate the vertebrae. (The condition of the disc is the key to the patient’s health problem in many cases.) Vertebra can become misaligned either from the cumulative effects of several minor episodes or from a single accident. Nature frequently is able to cope with these jolts to the spinal column without assistance. Sometimes, though, vertebrae tilted or rotated out of their normal position can be too much for nature to deal with effectively.

In order to more fully understand what occurs, we should know that the discs are really pads between the vertebrae and consist of a spongy substance surrounded by fibers of cartilage. When there is misalignment of a vertebra, there is uneven pressure on the disc causing it to swell and protrude. (One often hears this referred to as a slipped, herniated or ruptured disc.)

When it results in the pinching or compressing of the nerves that run through that particular area. These compressed nerves often become inflamed and impede the proper transmission of impulses to the section of the body controlled by these nerves. A seemingly endless list of ailments and pain may be brought about by these misalignments.

For complete and lasting results, all of the misaligned vertebrae & skeletal joints must be identified, located and corrected to their normal position.

Natural health care without drugs or surgery

PKH treatments is a natural form of health care that uses spinal & skeletal joint manipulation to correct these misalignments and restore proper function to the nervous system, helping your body to repair and heal naturally. PKH doesn't use drugs or surgery. Rather, a Manual spinal & skeletal manipulation to the application of a precise and accurate force to a specific part of the spinal & skeletal segment to corrects the misalignment, permitting normal nerve transmission and assisting your body to recuperate on its own.

The purpose is to keep your spine and all the associated nerves healthy. PKH treats all peripheral joints, including jaw, ribs, shoulders, elbows, wrist, fingers, hand, hip, knee, ankle, toes, and the foot. Proper nerve function allows your body to continually regenerate and maintain optimal health, and prevent disease.

Causes of Misalignment

A misalignment is a complex of functional and/or structural and/or pathological changes to the Spine & Skeletal joints that compromise optimal function of the nervous system, which also influences organ function and general health.

Unfortunately, many outside factors can cause misalignments, to appear in the spine & skeletal frame. Injuries, accidents, tension, and overworking the muscles can all lead to misalignment. You may not even realize your spine is out of alignment, but you will more than likely notice some of the resulting side effects which can, and often do, occur: Headaches, insomnia, anxiety, depression, joint pain, digestive issues, and chronic fatigue are just some of the many ways in which your body may be telling you that you have a vertebra out of alignment. This is because the body is thrown off balance and must work harder to compensate for spinal misalignments, not to mention that the central nervous system is unable to perform to the best of its ability.

Duration of PKH Treatment

Pain Killer Hands do everything in our power to help our patients feel better as fast as possible with as 3 treatment session as necessary. In general treatment sessions is 1 time per week for 3 weeks. We give every patient an estimate on how long his or her correction may take after the initial examination.

The more complicated or severe the injury, the longer time will take. Also older patient have more arthritis and less elasticity so they will usually respond more slowly than younger patients. And of course, the longer an injury has been inflamed, masked by medication, or left untreated, the more lengthy the treatment is likely to be. Average treatment and recovery time without complication, is usually from 2 to 4 weeks.

We also give advice on how to avoid future problems by evaluating lifestyle activities, ergonomics, posture and diet. Proactive recommendations include exercises and stretches; ergonomic tools like back supports, couch, mattresses or pillows.
