Chiropractic became a formalized
form of treatment over one hundred
years ago when Daniel Palmer opened
a school to teach a philosophy and
technique about correcting spinal
misalignments to improve nerve communication.
Through years of research, evolution,
and specificity to adjusting techniques,
a profession with a history of success
was established. Doctors of
Chiropractic adjust patients to restore
proper nerve communication and help
patients heal from many forms of injuries
a Chiropractor Compares to a Medical
Both Chiropractors and Medical Doctors
spend thousands of hours of study
to learn about life and disease processes.
How they apply their healing art to
the patient is different. A
chiropractor is educated in finding
and correcting nerve interference
problems that will restore the brain-body
communication so the body will heal
itself. A medical doctor is
trained to use pharmacy and surgery
to regulate the symptoms and systems
to steer the body away from further
sickness and towards healing.
The goal to restore the patient to
good health is still the same, but
the techniques and philosophy of practice
Chiropractic for Everyone?
Usually chiropractors were sought
to help with back pain, stiff necks,
and sometimes unresolved headaches.
Chiropractors are actually nervous
system analysts, and the spine happens
to be the superhighway for nerve communication
and the site of most signal flow problems.
Nerves go everywhere and can affect
almost anything. Bad posture,
poor body mechanics, repetitive motion,
falls, accidents, and illnesses can
interrupt proper brain-body communication
and cause many symptoms and ailments.
A chiropractor is trained to look
for spinal misalignments and nerve
interference and correct them with
specific spinal adjustments to restore
proper brain- body communication.
Since the nervous system is the
computer of the body, a chiropractor
is trained to use that system to find
the cause of the problem and symptoms
and help the body heal itself by removing
the nerve signal interference.
No matter how great or small the malfunction,
if there is a problem with brain-body
communication, healing will be a problem.
One goes to the dentist for proper
oral hygiene. You would go to
a service center to have your car's
computer checked if warning lights
came on. It only makes sense
that one should go to a chiropractor
for spinal alignment and nerve communication
check-ups. Staying ahead of
it is better than paying for it later.
