What Is Chiropractic

Chiropractic is based on the understanding that our bodies are in a continuous state of healing. Healing takes place in all living people. This healing is directed by the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). This is the focus of the Chiropractor; to make sure the communication is open from the brain to the body and from the body back to the brain. We detect subluxations in the spine which can hinder these communications.

Chiropractic is a drugless profession! Drugs can hinder healing. Drugs often cover symptoms and mask the problem so the patient “feels” good. Meanwhile, the disease processes continue for years till finally the inevitable happens. Symptoms, such as pain, occur for a reason. If we continue to cover the symptoms with drugs we never get to the underlying cause. Additionally, drugs have side effects. The side effects tend to outweigh any perceived benefits of the drugs.

Chiropractic uses specific osseous adjustments to align the vertebrae, improve segmental function, and remove interference. This is accomplished in a variety of ways and is usually not only painless, but often feels good. The result is a healthier better working body.

Chiropractic encourages good nutrition, exercise, rest, and spiritual wellness. These are necessary components for good health. Your Chiropractor may provide you with advice in these areas, however, the focus is always removing nervous interference.

Chiropractors do not treat diseases. We simply detect and correct subluxations. Subluxations cause dis-ease. Removing subluxations will allow the body to work better.

subluxation(sub”luk-sa’shun) – Any vertebrae which has lost its proper juxta-position with the bone above, below, or both, which impinges on a nerve and interferes with mental impulses.
