The profession of Chiropractic is based on the Science, Philosophy and Art of restoring balance within the body. It is a drugless, knifeless, natural and holistic approach to relieve pain, restore health and improve the quality of life for millions of people around the world.
The Science of Chiropractic is based on the fact that the nervous system is the Master System that controls and coordinates all other systems in your body. A few of these systems include the glandular, reproductive, digestive, respiratory, circulatory and immune systems. The brain and spinal cord is the mechanism by which nerve impulses or "life energy" is transported and conveyed throughout your body. Chiropractic seeks to find and correct the vertebra in poor alignment and / or abnormal motion within the spinal column in order to remove nervous system interference.
Just as other medical professionals do, Doctors of Chiropractic use state of the art methods of diagnosis including consultation; orthopedic, neurological and physical examination; x-rays and other scanning technologies when needed. A Doctor of Chiropractic is also trained to identify indications of disease and will consult and refer to other specialists or recommend additional medical procedures to provide optimal care for a patient.
Because of philosophical differences, many myths have been circulated about Chiropractic. However, Chiropractic is scientific and studies continue to confirm that Chiropractic is successful not only for back pain but also for many health complaints.
Chiropractic philosophy recognizes that doctors do not heal, but rather a true healing comes from within you and is totally under the control of an internal force called Innate or Inborn Intelligence. A good example of this is when you break a bone or get a cut. The doctor will clean it and bandage it and if it is bad enough it may need stiches, but it is our Innate or Inborn life that does the healing. From our present level of research and understanding, the quantity and quality of this inborn life energy is transmitted and expressed through the nervous system. So, the purpose of Chiropractic Adjustment is to optimize nervous system function, thereby facilitating the body's ability to heal itself.
The Art of Chiropractic refers to the techniques used to improve the alignment and function of the vertebra in the spinal column. It begins with a skilled hands-on evaluation of the patient's spine. Through their hands chiropractors look for misaligned or fixated vertebrae which may be affecting nerves that travel through, and out of, the spinal cord into the muscles, organs, tissues and cells of your body. Once located, the primary method of treatment is the vertebral adjustment, an art utilizing a specific force in a precise direction to return spinal bones to an improved position and motion.
An adjustment is often combined with other natural therapeutic methods to facilitate healing. This may include any of the following: Heat, cold, light, massage, electrical stimulation, and ultrasound. Often stretching or strengthening exercise are utilized to help stabilize the patients spine and help the treatment to be longer lasting.
