What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is one of the western world’s three major healing professions. The other two are medicine and osteopathy. Chiropractors specialize in the neuromuscular systems (nerves, muscles, and bones), detecting and correcting vertebral subluxations, or misalignments of the spine. Subluxations adversely affect the nervous system and can severely affect your health.

The word chiropractic comes from the Greeks: “chiros” means hand and “practic” means practice. Many chiropractic techniques involve the use of the hands in gently restoring the vertebrae to their proper alignment and motion. Free of subluxations, you are free to grow, develop, and become more than you are today. Chiropractic is a lifestyle that more and more people are choosing for the rest of their life. Many parents are discovering that their children are healthier and happier when they receive regular chiropractic care.

The following are the three fundamental principles of chiropractic.

1. Importance of the nervous system:

The nervous system controls and coordinates ALL the functions of the body. Everyone has the inborn ability to heal themselves as long as there is no interference with their nervous system, and therefore in their body’s function.

2. Spinal subluxations (misalignments):

Chiropractic doctors recognize that vertebral subluxations cause interference of the nervous system impeding the perfect expression of health. Subluxations may or may not cause pain or other symptoms. Chiropractors are the only health care providers who specialize in locating, correcting, and preventing subluxations.

3.Chiropractic adjustments:

Chiropractic doctors recognize that when spinal nerve interferences are cleared by means of specific chiropractic adjustments of vertebral subluxations, the nervous system’s normal flow of impulses can resume. The fully functioning nervous system can once again direct the body’s own healing mechanisms and help in the process of attaining optimum health.
