What is Chiropractic?

whatischiropractic[1]Chiropractic is the largest natural health profession in the nation and the second largest health care profession in the world. With the growing demand of a more natural and safe approach, it is also the fastest growing health profession. It has been successfully helping people find natural pain relief, and more importantly, in regaining their health. It is important to understand that chiropractic is NOT just for back and neck pain. Chiropractors work primarily with the spinal column and spinal cord which has a positive effect on the nervous system


Chiropractic is a healing art with a strong philosophy and belief that the body can heal itself. The profession was founded on this well-established principle. 


Chiropractic is the science, art and philosophy that restores and maintains a properly functioning nervous system, without the use of drugs or surgery.


Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body through the body’s own innate intelligence.


The nervous system is so important and yet so delicate, that it has a protective armor. The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spine protect the vulnerable communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots.


If the nervous system is impaired or encounters interference in its vital communication pathways, it can cause malfunction of the tissues and organs throughout the body. Doctors of Chiropractic call this the Vertebral Subluxation Complex.


The chiropractic adjustment has been proven to increase motion, increase circulation, reduce swelling and pain, and remove nerve irritation. After this nerve irritation is removed, your body is able to do what it is designed to do – heal itself.
