Exposure to chlorine compounds:
Breathing the fumes of bleach, taking a shower with non filtered water, or soaking in a Jacuzzi will subject the body to intolerant levels of chlorine or other toxic breakdown chemicals as the result of heating.
This exposure causes two changes that affect this condition. The first effect is a CNS motor neuron-proprioception disorder whereby muscle control is disturbed, leading to differences in right and left sides or changes in antagonistic muscle function. These imbalances then translate to joints and discs, causing articular subluxations or disc shearing, with resultant nerve pressure and entrapment.
The other deleterious effect of chlorine and its chemical breakdown products is that it deranges collagen structure, changing a linear structure to a web type, circular structure, like ringworm. The structure takes on the form of microscopic scar tissue. This leads to restricted motion, from myofibrositis. Eventually, the breakdown of collagen takes place in the cartilage and other connective tissues. When the support mechanism is disrupted, structural failure results, the most common of which is low back pain and sciatica.
This exposure can be prevented by eliminating household and clothes cleaning compounds containing chlorine, changing chlorinated Jacuzzi's to ozone filtration, or at least bromine compounds, and adding a filter to the shower. "
