YOUR HEALTH IS BASED ON THESE FOUR PRINCIPLES
1. Your body is a self-healing and organism - When we get a cut or a bruise, our body knows exactly what to do to heal and repair the damage, this is a built in innate intelligence inherent to all of us when we were born.
2. Your nervous system is the master system that controls and coordinates your entire body - we have an amazing system that commands and controls every organs tissues and cells in the body. It controls and coordinates your heart beating, your digestion of food, as well as your immune system's ability to fend and fight off diseases.
3. Any interference to this system can result to changes and dysfunction in the body, that is called vertebral subluxation - when something disrupts or interferes with your brain and body communication, the body cannot do what it's meant to do, this can result to many different health problems people are experiencing today.
4. Our job as chiropractors is to detect and remove this interference or vertebral subluxation to restore your normal bodily functions. - We don't do the healing, we simply remove the interference so that we can unlock your body's amazing potential!
Since its beginning, chiropractic has been based on the scientific fact that the nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system in the body. While the brain is protected by the skull, the spinal cord is more vulnerable, covered by 24 moving vertebrae. When these bones lose their normal motion or position, they can irritate the nervous system. This disrupts the function of the tissues or organs these nerves control, and is called the Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Chiropractic is the science of locating these areas of spinal malfunction, the art of correcting them, and the philosophy of things natural
After a thorough examination and review of a patient’s health history, the chiropractic doctor will recommend a specific care program. If the patient is a chiropractic case, this will include specific spinal adjustments. The word adjustment describes hundreds of ways of using carefully directed and controlled pressure to restore spinal bones to a more normal position and motion. When spinal function is improved, nervous system function (health) can improve as well. After years of training, Doctors of Chiropractic become experts at using just the right amount of force in the right direction.
Besides the science and art, chiropractic has a philosophical aspect. Doctors of Chiropractic recognize that regardless of the type of doctor one consults, doctors don’t heal; only the body can heal itself. So a Doctor of Chiropractic’s main purpose is to reduce interference to inborn healing ability
