WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC

  • CHIROPRACTIC CAN HELP

CHIROPRACTIC IN ABOUT 100 WORDS

Aches and pains are signs that your body isn't working correctly. Your brain, spinal cord, and nerves (your nervous system) control and coordinate EVERYTHING in your body. Physical, chemical or emotional stress can cause problems in the spine or other joints of the body. Muscles contract, locking spinal joints that can pinch and/or irritate nearby nerves and cause pain or dysfunction throughout the body. This sets the stage for chronic pain, disease and ill health. A thorough examination helps chiropractors find these problems in the spine called subluxations. By applying a precise force to misaligned spinal joints, it removes the dysfunction from the nervous system. Repeated visits restore your nervous system integrity, allowing your body to function at its optimal potential.

CHIROPRACTORS

Chiropractors are differentiated from other healthcare professionals in that they are the only professionals who are trained to diagnose and treat what we call spinal subluxation.  The word "subluxation" comes from the Latin words meaning "somewhat or slight" (sub) and "to dislocate" (luxate).  So the term literally means a slight dislocation or misalignment of the bones of the spine.

When a subluxation occurs, a chiropractor can correct the misaligned bone and allow it to return to its proper position. This procedure is called an adjustment, and the adjustment enables the body to heal. In a chiropractic adjustment, the chiropractor applies quick and specific pressure to the misaligned joint that is not functioning properly. The goal is to correct its alignment and cause a positive neurological response. This results in a reduction of pain and inflammation and a restoration of function and mobility to the injured area. In addition to the chiropractic adjustment, our treatment plans may include therapeutic exercise, spinal decompression therapy, ultrasound, electric muscle stimulation, intersegmental traction, nutritional counseling and other professional advise that may improve overall health

WELLNESS CARE VS. SICK CARE

Another thing which separates chiropractors from traditional medicine is the wellness approach. Wellness is a state of optimal health for normal function, and not just the absence of disease. Most people think they are healthy just because they are not sick, but to be truly healthy, it is a condition of wholeness in which all of the organs are functioning at 100%, all of the time (Webster's Dictionary). The wellness approach is to look for the underlying causes or dysfunction or disease, and make whatever interventions and lifestyle changes necessary to alleviate them and return to wellness. When the body is working properly, it tends towards wellness, and has a pretty high success rate of correcting small problems before they turn into big ones.
