What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a health care system, which directly concerns itself with the nervous system and its relation to the function of the human body. Chiropractors correct vertebral subluxations (vertebrae in the spine which have lost their normal position and are causing interference to the nerve roots and/or spinal cord), which inhibit the body from allowing total health. Chiropractic does not use drugs, medicine, or invasive tools and procedures. Chiropractic is the largest, drugless, natural healing profession in the world. Chiropractic is a health care profession, which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.
Your health depends on a properly functioning nervous system! Chiropractic is a science, art and philosophy which concerns itself with the relationship between the nervous system/spinal column and the function of the body's organs, tissues and cells. Science understands that the nervous system is the master control system for your whole body, and therefore the healthier the nervous system, the healthier your body will be.
Chiropractic: The philosophy, science, and art of detecting, analyzing, and correcting Vertebral Subluxations.
Vertebral Subluxation: A spinal bone that has lost its proper position and motion causing interference to the nervous system.
Adjustment: A force by hand or instrument put into a Vertebral Subluxation with the intent of restoring proper position and motion to remove interference to the nervous system.
Premise: The presence of Vertebral Subluxation alone, regardless of the presence or absence of symptoms, is detrimental to health and its existence warrants chiropractic care.
