About Chiropractic Care

According to The Association of Chiropractic Colleges, “chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.”

Chiropractic Care

According to The Association of Chiropractic Colleges, “chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.”

The “founding father” of chiropractic, Dr. D.D. Palmer, developed a theory that spinal misalignment caused nerve pressure or irritation, which in turn caused various ailments. He realized that the structure and condition of the body influences its ability to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. This simple philosophy has healed and prevented injury and illness for over a century!

How It Works

The nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. The brain stores and receives an incredible amount of information, and this information needs a way to get in and out. The spinal cord consists of of bundles of nerves which provide a pathway for this information to travel. The spine both houses and protects the spinal cord.

Nerve dysfunction can result from any number of factors such as falls, accidents, stress, tension or over-use. These events can alter our “wiring,” creating pain or discomfort in our bodies. Chiropractic doctors are trained to locate the source of the pain (which may be far from the actual location where the symptom is occurring,) correct or adjust the affected joints, setting up the body to heal on its own. Chiropractic success occurs by addressing the source of the problem, not just masking the symptoms.

What to Expect

After a thorough examination and a review of your health history, your chiropractic doctor will recommend a specific care program. If yours is a chiropractic case, this will include specific spinal adjustments. Adjustments refer to hundred of ways of using carefully directed and controlled pressure to restore spinal bones to a more normal position. When spinal function is improved, nervous system function and health can improve too.

After years of training, chiropractic doctors become experts at using just the right amount of force in the right direction. This may require a quick movement or in other instances a slow and constant pressure.
