Medicine is the study of disease and what causes man to die.  Chiropractic is the study of health and what causes man to live.

Why Chiropractic?


The brain controls and coordinates every cell in the body.  The nerve system which consists of; the brain, spinal cord, the spinal nerves and miles of the peripheral nerves connect the brain to tissue cells.  If the spine has misaligned bones, call vertebrae, it is interfering with the brain to body connection.  These misaligned vertebrae are called subluxations.  The nerve system is in constant communication.  There are 3 trillion bits of information in and out of the brain every second.  We are consciously aware of approximately 50 bits of its information per second.

80% of babies have been found to have structural damage in the neck at childbirth.  Subluxations are typically painless because over 90% of the nerves that make up the nerve system are not responsible for pain and pleasure.  The human body cannot express optimal health without a clear and healthy nerve system.  This is why every man, woman, and child should be checked for subluxations.

Chiropractic is a drug-less profession.  Unfortunately 68% of the drugs that are produced on the planet are consumed in the United States.  Studies have shown that adverse reactions to medications taken over the counter, or prescribed by their medical doctors, is the fourth major cause of death in the United States.

What Is Chiropractic?

The body is a self-healing self-regulating system.  There is an innate intelligence that runs the body.  This innate intelligence uses the nerve system to communicate with every individual cell in the body.

The role of chiropractor, D.C. is to detect spinal misalignments, called subluxations.  These subluxations cause interference of the nerve system.  When the chiropractor analyzes the spine and detects a spinal subluxation is present, he/she will perform an adjustment.  The adjustment is designed to correct the alignment of the spine and remove the interference of the brain to body connection. Restoring the brian to body connection, enhances the function of the body's ability to function at its maximum potential.  Subluxations are caused by stressors in the body.  These stressors can be; emotional stress, chemical stress, or physical stress.  91% of the nerve system, has nothing to do with pain or pleasure.  Therefore subluxations can be present for years and sometimes decades before symptoms occur.  

A spinal adjustment is performed by hand.  The job of a chiropractor is to analyze, detect and correct vertebral subluxations.  A side effect of correcting the subluxations may be pain relief.  Many find specific, scientific chiropractic adjustments relieve a spectrum of ailments such as headaches, certain types of migraines, menstrual cramps, allergies, asthma, stomach disorders, spastic colon, and arm, hand, and leg pain that's due to interference in the spinal cord or the nerves exiting the spine.  Some patients with asthma and emphysema turn to chiropractic care to relieve tension in the chest.  Research is helping to determine that adjustments help the ears drain properly, thus alleviating otitis media--the ear infection that plagues children.  

The job of a chiropractor is to analyze, detect, and correct vertebral subluxations.

What Happens during a Chiropractic Examination?

A chiropractor will take a medical history, conduct physical, neurological, and orthopedic examinations. Chiropractic physicians spend a considerable amount of time assessing posture, examining the spine, testing reflexes, joint motion, and muscle strength. X-rays and other diagnostic images are often used to locate vertebral dysfunction and to rule out disorders like tumors or fractures, which require the attention of other healthcare experts.

What Training Do Chiropractors Have?

Chiropractors are licensed in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. A rigorous course of study is necessary to receive a degree of Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.). According to the American Chiropractic Association , there are over 60,000 D.C.s practicing in the Untied States. All state licensing boards require two to four years of undergraduate education, and completion of a four-year chiropractic college course.

Doctors of chiropractic are uniquely trained in structural health and are highly skilled in spinal manipulation.

When you visit a doctor of chiropractic, you will know that your doctor is qualified to perform the procedures skillfully and safely and that your chiropractor is concerned about your health and wellness.

Is Chiropractic Care The Right Choice?

A recent federal study by the Agency for Health Care Policy & Research concluded that spinal manipulation was one of the preferred early treatments for LBP. Doctors may refer patients to chiropractors or work in conjunction with a chiropractic practitioner to give patients optimal care. Many insurance companies cover chiropractic care, and hospitals are offering access and/or staff privileges to chiropractors.
