About Chiropractic

What is Chiropractic?

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."

Origins

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 influenced how the body functioned and its ability to heal itself, without the use of drugs or surgery.

This simple philosophy has healed people and has prevented unwanted injury and illness for over a century! But to fully understand the chiropractic perspective, one must learn a bit about the nervous system, or how our bodies are "wired".

Our Wiring

The nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves.  The brain is divided into sections and stores and receives an incredible amount of information. But this information needs a way to get in and out.  Nerves provide a pathway for this information to travel, and the spinal cord is made up of bundles of these nerves.  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" and create pain or discomfort in our bodies.

Getting to the Source

Doctors of chiropractic are trained to locate the source of the pain or discomfort - it may actually be far from the actual location where the symptom is occurring - and then we correct or adjust the joints in the body and set it up to heal on its own.  Of course, the type of correction or adjustment employed by the chiropractor depends on the condition being treated, but you get the main idea.  The important thing to remember is that chiropractic success occurs by addressing the source of the problem, not just masking the symptoms.

Below is a partial list of conditions that may readily respond to chiropractic care:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Headaches
  • Numbness/Tingling
  • Sciatica
  • Sports injuries
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Auto injuries

"The Doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."
