Chiropractic

Chiropractic is derived from the Greek words “chiros” (hand) and “practikos” (done by), or literally “done by hand”.  Chiropractors are highly trained healers who recognize the relationship between the structure of the human body (particularly the spine) and the function of the body (particularly the nervous system).  The task of the Chiropractor is to identify and remove any interference to healing. This typically entails the use of spinal manipulation to address areas of misalignment or “fixation” of the spine so as to allow normal nerve communication between the brain and the body.  Chiropractors also may use manipulation of the extremity joints and soft tissues also to release proper nerve and blood flow.

Manipulation has been in use for thousands of years.  The ancient Chinese used  it.  Hippocrates advocated it; he said “look well to the spine for the cause of disease”.  Within the last century, Chiropractic has emerged as an advanced science and art.  Chiropractors go through rigorous training in many subjects, surpassing that of allopathic medicine. Chiropractic has remained a drugless and non-surgical approach to healthcare. 

 “The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patience in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.” -Thomas Edison

Because the nervous system controls all other functions of the body, any interference with it can cause malfunction of any part of the body.  Chiropractic treatment of the interference can have a huge impact on health.  Millions of people have enjoyed the safe, drugless approach of Chiropractic for a variety of conditions.  Research has shown the  benefit of Chiropractic care for neck pain, back pain, and headaches.  Chiropractic treatment can also have a positive effect on other conditions such as asthma, infantile colic, migraine headache, autoimmune disease, bowel problems, digestive problems, womans health problems, immune function and a host of other ailments.
