What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic may very well be one of the least understood philosophies of life and health. It is based upon a few very simple ideas.
The body is designed with an inborn ability to maintain itself in a state of proper function … A newborn baby may seem small, fragile and helpless, but within that body is the ability to make food into living tissue, to heal cuts and bruises, to adapt to changes in the environment, to produce the chemicals necessary to perform every bodily function, to fight off invading organisms, to live and lead a long, healthy productive life.
The brain and nerve system are the primary tools by which we attain proper function, what we commonly call health … Every cell, tissue, gland and organ in the body depends upon messages carried to and from the brain, by way of the nerve supply, in order to function in a coordinated, organized manner so that each part can benefit the whole of the body producing a full and abundant life.
Interference in the nerve system reduces the body’s ability to function in a coordinated organized manner … While a corpse has a brain and nerve system, it does not have life; there is no power or energy flowing over the nerve system. Similarly, a paralyzed person, due to injury, has lost function to a part or parts of their body, due to a break in the coordinated, organizing pathway of the nerve system. Even slight damage to the delicate and vital nerve supply can reduce the body’s ability to function at its fullest potential.
A spinal misalignment that interferes with the nerve system (called a vertebral subluxation) creates a reduction in the coordinated, organizing principle of life and health … Slight misalignments, subluxations, of the 24 moveable bones of the spine called vertebra, cause by everyday, common activities can interfere with the ability of the nerve system to carry messages that are necessary for the successful accomplishment of hundreds of everyday activities, not the least of which keeping you and your family healthy.
** Health is defined as having 100% of your body parts, working 100% of the time in a coordinated, organizing manner.
Chiropractors correct vertebral subluxations … The single objective of the chiropractor and this office, is to locate and correct vertebral subluxations in every man, woman and child so that families and entire communities are able to express life and health at a higher level.
If you and your family are not seeing a chiropractor regularly, you are not doing all you should for your life and health.
