The modern science and philosophy of chiropractic is based on the belief that the human body is a self-healing organism controlled by the nervous system. This process can be disrupted by misalignment of the spinal vertebrae which is known as Subluxations. Such a condition can pinch, choke or irritate nerves and results in improper functioning. This can lead to poor health, disease and symptoms. A doctor of Chiropractic utilizes his hands to adjust subluxations, allowing the body to express its optimal health potential.
Research has shown that Chiropractic care is very effective in the treatment of neck pain, back pain, headaches, migraines, numbness or tingling in the arms or legs, painful joints, problems with shoulders, hips, or jaws, fatigue, and stress, to name a few. Current research is demonstrating the effectiveness of chiropractic in treating children with conditions such as chronic ear aches, asthma, bedwetting, colic, and growing pains.
What is the Chiropractic Philosophy?
- The body is a self-healing organism.
- The Nervous System controls ALL body functions and processes.
- The structure of the spine dictates the function of the nervous system.
- Changes in the structure of the spine can affect the nervous system, thus affecting health.
The delicate nerves and spinal cord are protected by the skull and spinal column.
These delicate nerves may be irritated by changes in posture and spinal alignment.
We call this SUBLUXATION.
Chiropractors specialize in reducing "SUBLUXATION" or mis-alignments.
