Chiropractic care offers a natural way to a healthier lifestyle. Chiropractic is based on the fact that your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ and system in your body. Chiropractors are specially trained to detect, reduce, and prevent nervous system inter-ference which can lead to pain and disease. The goal of chiropractic is to restore and optimize health.
Chiropractic care is safe for all ages. From small children to senior citizens, there are safe chiropractic techniques to aid in the recovery of a persons overall health. However, chiropractic care is not indicated with every condition. Therefore, it is the responsibility of your chiropractor to conduct a thorough evaluation to determine if chiropractic care is appropriate for your condition. It is recommended that you choose your chiropractor wisely.
For over 100 years chiropractic has been a science based on the philosophy that all human function is controled by the nerverous sytems. The spinal cord is protected by 24 movable bones (vertebrae) which can lose mobility or become misaligned. This vertebral malfunction called “subluxation” can irritate and interfere with the nervous system resulting in abnormal function and eventually disease. Since many conditions which effect our body develop over time, this abnormal spinal function can go on unnoticed for years creating damage and limitation of activity. Chiropractic is the science of locating these areas of malfunction and the art of correcting them which allows the body to heal naturally.
Chiropractors must hold a “Doctor of Chiropractic” (D.C.) degree from an accredited chiropractic college, and be licensed by the state in which they practice. Chiropractors are primary care physicians, trained in orthopedic and neurologic examination, x-ray, nutrition, and many other important areas. Currently, there are over 50,000 D.C.’s practicing making chiropractic the largest drugless healing art in the world. A chiropractic doctor closely examines the spine, and using the many modern tools available, tries to determine areas of the spine that may move too much or too little. Once isolated, these areas of “spinal joint dysfunction” can be treated with specific chiropractic techniques to help restore proper spinal joint motion. Once regarded as only back and neck specialists, today’s doctor of chiropractic may hold one or more specialty degrees in areas such as pediatrics, radiology, sports injuries, nutrition, acupuncture, orthopedics, and many others. Millions of patients each year turn to chiro-practic for their health care needs.
