You are joining many of your neighbors who have chosen the natural, drugless, chiropractic approach to good health. Chiropractic is the healthcare choice of the 21st century; it is an exciting new world of healing and health optimization.
People see their doctor of chiropractic for many different reasons. To some, chiropractic is a system of healing musculoskeletal problems such as back, arm, shoulder, leg, hip, joint, nerve and muscle pain or discomfort.
Others use chiropractic as a natural system of healing from many different diseases or conditions including headaches; fatigue; high blood pressure; skin conditions; PMS; menstrual cramps; arthritis; asthma; sinus trouble; digestive problems; nervous stress; fevers; emotional disorders; bed-wetting; colic; and ear, eye, and throat problems without drugs and surgery.
Others use chiropractic as a method of keeping their health at its peak: for better ports performance, higher resistance to disease, clearer thinking, a more comfortable pregnancy, and more energy.
In order to understand why people can expect such a wide range of benefits from chiropractic care, it is very important that you understand, what health is. Dorland’s Medical dictionary states: “health is a condition of optimum physical, mental and social being and not merely the absence of diseases and infirmities.” Dorland’s tells us that health is more than just how you feel or even whether you have a disease or not. Webster’s Dictionary gives us the health formula which states: “health is a condition of wholeness in which all the organs are functioning 100% all time.” In short the key to health is function.
There are many factors in our environment that damage the nerve system. Science has discovered and interference that is of epidemic proportions, Vertebral Subluxation. (A misalignment of spinal bones which adversely alter the function of the spinal cord and spinal nerve roots.) Vertebral Subluxations are known to affect all individuals, frequently without major pain or symptoms, as in many other conditions.
Chiropractors are specialists in Vertebral Subluxation. Chiropractic professionals recognize that health is the normal state of being; that is assuming there is no interference to its expression. The science of chiropractic is concerned with the location and the identification of the vertebral subluxations, a major interference to your health potential. The clinical aspect of chiropractic is concerned with the elimination of vertebral subluxation.
