What Is Chiropractic?
People like chiropractors because they approach health in a natural, safe, drug-free manner.
Can Chiropractic Help You?
Each year millions of people are enjoying the most popular natural, drug-free healthcarre system in the world---chiropractic! Chiropractic helps people function closer to their physical and emotional best, recover from sickness, disease and disability faster and minimize the use of drugs and surgery in their lives! Many who choose a chiropractic lifestyle report less stress, more vitality and more enjoyment in life!
What Is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a system of healthcare that releases a serious stress from your body: the vertebral subluxation complex (VSC or subluxation). A subluxation is an often painless, tiny spinal distortion that can affect your nerves, muscles, internal organs, discs, bones, brain function, posture and overall health.
How Do We Get Subluxations?
Subluxations are caused by stress of all kinds: poor posture, accidents, sitting or working in the same position for long periods and sport. Even emotional stress can suddenly knock us “out of whack.” adults can carry subluxations in their bodies that were originally caused by stressful birth or a childhood fall. Unless they have a chiropractic spinal checkup these long-standing subluxations may never be corrected. Adults may then develop physical and/or emotional dis-ease or body malfunction and subsequent health problems due to these long-sanding subluxations. Studies reveal that nearly everyone has subluxations in their spine; it is a “hidden epidemic.” for that reason you and your family need to have your spines checked periodically by a doctor of chiropractic---just as you get your eyes, teeth and blood pressure checked!
Insure your child's spinal health with a chiropractic checkup.
How Was Chiropractic Discovered?
Modern chiropractic was discovered in Davenport, Iowa in 1895 when Dr. D.D. Palmer performed the first chiropractic “spinal adjustment” on his deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard. Lillard's hearing returned and Palmer thought he had discovered a cure for deafness. But as patients with digestive troubles, sciatica, menstrual troubles, migraine headaches, epilepsy, heart problems, back pain and many other conditions responded to his “hand treatments” (as he firsdt called them), Palmer realized that he had discovered something far-reaching indeed.
Why Choose Chiropractic?
People like chiropractors because they approach healthcare in a unique manner. Instead of diagnosing and treating disease, your chiropractor's purpose is to enhance your health by analyzing your spine and eliminating your vertebral subluxations. Without subluxations your body and mind function better, heal better and you feel better. The medical approach of waiting for symptoms to appear before addressing one's health is limited----by the time symptoms first appear you could have been deteriorating for years. The chiropractic approach is to get your body working well now! You could have subluxations in your spine for years, eating away at your health unawares. Chiropractors can analyze your spine and locate (and correct) your subluxations before symptoms appear. Of course, if you presently are ill and suffering, you need your natural healing ability enhanced so you can better fight disease and return yourself to a state of balance and health. That is a fact no matter what disease or condition you may have. By correcting your subluxations, chiropractors help activate your natural healing ability to function at its optimum----to awaken your “inner healer.” that's why increasing numbers of people are seeing chiropractors for health problems----but not only for health problems. Any people are also seeing chiropractors to maintain and enhance their health, for better sports performance, for natural immunity----and a drug-free lifestyle.
Chiropractic's goal is to awaken your “inner healer.”
What Does A Chiropractor Do?
Your doctor of chiropractic is specially trained to analyze your body for subluxations. Using special chiropractic spinal “adjustment” techniques, your chiropractor safely, gently and painlessly corrects your subluxations, ridding your body of this dangerous condition. What can this do for you?
Could You Benefit From Chiropractic?
Walk into a chiropractor's office and who do you see? People with all kinds of problems: colds, flu, allergies, hearing problems, ear infections; spinal or disc problems; pain; whiplash; arthritis; insomnia; stress; vision problems; headaches; PMS; allergies; bed-wetting; colic; high blood pressure---the list is very long. For over a hundred years people have visited their neighborhood doctor of chiropractic for nearly every health condition!
A Unique Place
Chiropractic occupies a unique place in modern healthcare. It draws upon modern scientific knowledge of anatomy and physiology using X-rays, infrared and electronic scanners and other tools, yet chiropractic respects the ancient concepts of self-healing, life energy and a holistic approach to health. Your chiropractor's goal is to turn on your “inner healer” and awaken your natural healing ability. So if you're tired of being sick and tired, 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 and worrying about side effects, why not join the millions who have discovered the wonders of this amazing healthcare system? Why live with health problems when you can live without them? Discover chiropractic---discover how natural healing can be.
Nerves touch every part of your body. A misaligned vertebra can interfere with the function of your nervous system. This is called subluxation.
THE CHIROPRACTIC LIFESTYLE
Chiropractors are experts in the care of the bones, nerves, muscles and connective tissues that make up about 60% of your body. All of the joints in your body are part of tis musculo-skeletal system and its optimal function is necessary for overall good health. Ask your Doctor of Chiropractic for more information about a care program that may include specific spinal adjustments, exercise recommendations, nutritional advice or other conservative methods of care based on your health history, age, current condition and lifestyle.
