Chiropractic is the Philosophy, Art and Science, which utilize the inherent wisdom and recuperative ability of the body. It focuses on the relationship between structure and function,
specifically of the vertebral column and the nervous system, to correct the cause of disease. Chiropractic is based on the fact that the body only functions as well as the nervous transmission
supplied to it through the nervous system.
Vertebral misalignments of the spine (subluxation) often interfere with the normal flow of nervous impulse to organs, tissues
and cells. This places the body in a state of
"dis-ease" The Doctor of Chiropractic locates, analyzes and corrects the subluxation, this restoring the body to its maximum health potential.
Chiropractic is the worlds largest natural healing art. It is not a cure for bad backs or sore necks. In
fact, it is not a cure for anything. You see, health and healing comes only from within your body. Think about it. Take a bite out of an apple from your fruit basket. Now, bandage it up and put
whatever kind of antibiotic, ointment, pills or potions you want to on it and leave it to
"heal" for a couple of days. Now you're saying to yourself this is silly. We both know the apple with be brown
and rotting, not healing, because it no longer has a life source, but
that's the whole point. Life Heals, Not Doctors! Take a similar bite out of an apple that is still on a tree and return in a couple of
days. You will find the tree adapting to the insult by mending the wound in its healing process.
The Doctor of Chiropractic deals specifically with the Central Nervous System, your life source,
and the master controller of your entire being. By examining the spine the chiropractor is able to detect interference in your nervous system called a subluxation. With a specific chiropractic
adjustment the interference is removed, restoring integrity to your nervous system, unleashing the healing powers from within. To limit chiropractic to the back would be like saying aspirin will only
affect the stomach because that's where it goes to enter the system. The spine is simply the portal of entry to the nervous system. Grasp this concept and you will truly maximize your potential in all
areas of your life.
