Why Chiropractic?
“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.”                 - Thomas Edison

People are recognizing the benefit of seeking an alternative to traditional medicine; one that will help them achieve and maintain optimal health.  Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, Chiropractic emphasizes improving overall health in an effort to reduce the risk of pain and illness in the first place.  Good health is the greatest achievement of man and you will find that it can not be found in a pill box.  Your health is your greatest asset and is worth your time and energy to carefully consider your options.

A Doctor of Chiropractic receives a very similar education to the Medical Doctor - the big difference being that when the medical students are learning about prescription drugs, the chiropractic students are focusing on the nervous system and how it relates to every function of the body. 

As most people are aware, the medical profession emphasizes and relies on the use of drugs.  Drugs are given under the premise of stimulating an inhibited condition or inhibiting a stimulated condition, even when used to temporarily relieve or deaden pain.  Their purpose is to artificially produce an opposite condition in an attempt at suppressing symptoms or pathologies.

One of the problems with using drugs is that when the desired effects of the drug wear off, the symptoms and pathologies may again manifest themselves.

Spinal Nerve Function

Thus, the patient under this method of treatment is told by the prescribing medical physician to continue the use of drugs as the illness persists . . . in some cases it may be for life.The patient also suffers side effects and adverse reactions with this onslaught to the normal physiology of the body, which too often results in more prescriptions meant to lessen those symptoms.  Most people are unaware that they are entering into a downward spiral that leads to debilitating conditions and an unhealthy lifestyle.

Chiropractic is the largest drugless healing art in the world.  Chiropractic seeks out the cause of disease and sets out to correct it without the use of drugs.  While drugs alter normal function throughout the body, Chiropractic restores function throughout the body. 

Every function taking place in your body is under the control of the nervous system.  Proper nerve supply is as important to health as water is to a plant.  The nervous system is composed of the brain, spinal cord and a network of nerves which permeate the body much the same as do blood vessels.  The spinal cord is encased within a bony shaft consisting of 24 movable vertebrae which we call the spine.  Spinal nerves are emitted through small holes in these vertebrae to every cell in the body.  As long as there is no nerve interference, every cell operates normally.  But interference with the natural flow of mental impulses to the cells in the organs of the body produces malfunction, injury and ultimate destruction of the cells.  Remove the interference and you correct the basic cause of malfunction and disease. 

If and when a vertebra becomes subluxated, (out of alignment) and produces an interference with the normal transmission of nerve impulses it will produce abnormal function and/or abnormal development, pains and disorders; this is disease.  Chiropractic is the science of locating the point of interference and then adjusting the vertebra to remove the interference so the body can function properly and allow for healing.  An adjustment of the spine consists of a small “thrust” to the proper part of the spine in order to remove interference between the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and the organs.
