What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic care is a natural method of health care that focuses on treating the cause of physical problems, rather than just the symptoms.
Chiropractic care is based on the premise that good health depends in part upon a normally functioning nervous system.
Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism.
Chiropractic care is based on a simple but powerful premise: With a normally functioning spine and a healthy lifestyle, your body is better able to heal itself. This is because the spinal cord, which is protected by the spine, is the main pathway of your nervous system. Your brain and spinal cord controls all the cells, tissues, organs, as well as feeling, movement, and function throughout your body.
From the time that we are born to the time we pass away, our bodies are constantly under stress. Stress, whether it is chemical, physical, or mental, has a big roll in causing our body to become imbalanced. An imbalanced body has less energy, less resistance, and more disease. When your spine becomes imbalanced (subluxated), it interferes with nerve function resulting in more disease, more imbalance and a negative cycle is created.
“Get Knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases.”
- Hippocrates, 460-377 BC.
Henry Winsor, a medical doctor, wondered how “Chiropractors claim that by ‘adjusting’ one vertebra, they can relieve stomach troubles and ulcers; by ‘adjusting’ another menstrual cramps; and another, thyroid condition, kidney disease, constipation, heart disease, lung disease – but how?” He began a series of dissections on 75 human and 22 cat cadavers. The result of his study was that there was nearly a 100% correlation between “minor curvatures” of the spine and diseases of internal organs.
“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
- Thomas Edison
