What Is Chiropractic?
“Chiropractic embraces the science of life, the knowledge of how organisms act in health and disease, and also the art of adjusting the neuroskeleton.”
-Daniel David Palmer, founder of modern chiropractic
Chiropractic is the Science, Art, and Philosophy that concerns itself with the restoration of good health by regaining and maintaining a properly functioning nervous system, without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body. The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spine protect the vulnerable communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. If the nervous system is impaired, it can cause malfunction of the tissues and organs throughout the body. Doctors of Chiropractic call this the Vertebral Subluxation Complex.
Chiropractors help in restoring nervous system function. The Chiropractic adjustment has been proven to increase motion, increase circulation, reduce swelling and pain, and remove nerve interference. Once this nerve interference and irritation is reduced, your body is able to do what it is designed to do... heal itself.
