Chiropractic Adjustments

exam roomChiropractic is based on the following principles:

  1. The body is self-healing and self regulating.
  2. The nervous system is the master controller of the body. The nervous system controls the function of all the organs, tissues and cells of the body.
  3. Any interference of the nervous system inhibits 100% functioning.
  4. The Vertebral Subluxation Complex (subluxation) causes interference of the nervous system. This causes impingement of the nerves from this level of the spine, and affects the organs, tissues and cells supplied by this specific nerve(s).
  5. The Chiropractic Adjustment removes the interference and allows the body to restore proper function at these levels.

Who goes to a Chiropractor?

  • people with back pain, neck pain, headaches or some type of symptoms
  • people with conditions that have not responded to traditional approaches
  • anyone interested in maintaining their health and well-being
  • children with symptoms
  • children for spinal check ups at developmental phases
  • anyone with sports injuries
  • anyone trying to perform their normal daily activities with more flexibility and movement
  • anyone understanding that the nervous system controls the function and coordination of the entire body
  • anyone interested in functioning at 100% of their optimum health
  • seniors who are looking to stay fit and flexible through the next phases of life

Examples:

  • world class athletes who require maximum coordination and balance throughout their spine and nervous system
  • computer programmers who generally work at stations with poor ergonomic design
  • musicians in awkward positions with their instruments
  • small children who walk, fall, play, etc.
  • nurses who care for their patients
  • school age children who are growing rapidly
  • and the list goes on, and on, and on….

Why Chiropractic?

Because Chiropractors function on the health and well being of the entire person. It is our mission to help each individual experience overall balance of their nervous system so that their bodies can function at 100% of their ability. Our approach to maintaining health is different from the “disease care model” that has been so prevalent in society over the last 100 years. We do not believe that better health comes from better chemistry, but that better health comes from within. We are leading the health care revolution by educating and empowering all our patients to better understand health and the active role they can take.

It is important to understand that HEALTH is the “optimum physical, mental and social well-being; not merely the absence of disease and infirmity.” There is a natural health continuum that starts at birth with each of us having our full potential. Through physical, chemical and emotional stresses we experience various states of dis-ease, which a chiropractor can identify as subluxations in the spine. If left without correction, this can lead to disease, pathology, pain or discomfort.

The essence of the chiropractic profession is detection and correction of the vertebral subluxation. The vertebral subluxation is the loss of normal alignment and motion of spinal bones, impairing the function of the nervous system. A chiropractic adjustment is a specific correction of the subluxation to improve nervous system function thus restoring optimum health.

Optimal health and expression of life are both dependant upon the proper function of the spine and nervous system, free of interference. A Chiropractor is a doctor who promotes whole body health and the body’s innate ability to heal itself.
