What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a system of health care that releases one of the most serious forms of stress from your body: the vertebral subluxation complex can affect your nerves, muscles, internal organs, discs, bones and brain and weaken your overall health. Chiropractic has become the largest drugless health care profession in the world because it has helped millions of people recover from sickness, disease and disability and minimize the use of drugs and surgery in their lives!

What Your Chiropractor Does
If the spinal column is subluxated, the nervous system it protects is placed under stress, is damaged and is not able to function at 100% capacity. That causes dis-ease or overall body disharmony or malfunction. It interferes with and may damage, ligaments, discs and joints; weakens your muscles; and alters energy impulses to all parts of your body. Your internal organs may get less blood, even your brain may get less oxygen! The most frightening thing is that you may have subluxations in your body for years without noticing any effects. Eventually they can weaken you to the point where you would begin to develop lowered resistance and fall prey to sickness and diseases of all kinds. Doctors of chiropractic analyze your spinal column and structural system for areas of vertebral subluxation complex. They rebalance and realign your body using chiropractic spinal techniques.

How Do We Get Spinal Subluxations?
Mainly from physical and mental stresses. It may occur in infancy from a difficult birth or from childhood falls. Later in life, emotional tension or stress can gradually damage your spine or violent injuries from automobile accidents or sports can suddenly knock you "out of whack". Nearly everyone eventually gets vertebral subluxations. It is a "hidden epidemic" and it is for that reason that you need to have your spine checked for this condition by a doctor of chiropractic-just as you get your eyes, teeth and blood pressure checked!

How Does The Chiropractor Help Me?
The doctor of chiropractic analyzes your body for vertebral subluxations using his/her hands and other analysis procedures, and then corrects any vertebral subluxations using various spinal adjustment techniques.

Who Should Go To A Chiropractor?
Who should go to a chiropractor? It depends on who you ask. For example, if you asked a person who was relieved of migraines he would say, "Anyone with migraines should see a doctor of chiropractic". A child who no longer wets his bed will say, "Chiropractic is for bed-wetting". "Anyone with menstrual problems should go", says a woman who suffered from menstrual cramps. Someone saved from back or disc surgery would say chiropractic is for people with spine, back or neck problems. There are case histories of people recovering from nearly every known disease and condition under chiropractic care: heart trouble, hyperactivity, fatigue, allergy, digestive problems, colds, flu, infertility and hundreds of other conditions.

A Unique Place In Health Care
Chiropractic occupies a unique place in modern health care. It draws upon modern scientific knowledge and techniques. Chiropractic teaches us that the best way to improve our health is by removing the elements that interfere with normal body function. Along with vertebral subluxations these include drugs, unnatural or damaging childbirth practices, unnatural foods, pollution, chemicals, excess tension and other forms of emotional distress. So if you are tired of being sick and tired of being told "you've just got to learn to live with it", and are looking for a natural method of regaining health and wholeness without polluting your body with chemicals, why not join the millions who have discovered the wonders of this amazing health care system?

Postscript
No matter what disease or condition you have, you can benefit from a healthy spine. Spinal health can be as important for your overall healing as proper nutrition. Are you and your family carrying the vertebral subluxation complex in your spines? Only a chiropractic spinal checkup can tell. Among the many things contributing to your health: the quality of the air, food and water you take in; how you handle emotional stress; your inherited weaknesses and strengths; your use of drugs; exercise; and relaxation--a healthy spine is absolutely essential. In some people it is a major factor and can make the difference between a life of health, strength and vitality or a life of disease, weakness and disability. A healthy spine can improve your life.
