Chiropractic is a: philosophy - a science - an art. The foundation upon which it is built is the realization that health is the body's normal state, and good health is perfectly natural.
To a great extent, the ability of the body to maintain good health is dependent on its ability to adapt to the environment. Ensuring this capability is one of nature's most remarkable communication networks: the nervous system, comprised of the brain, the spine and the nerves.
The brain sends mental impulses to each of the more than 100 trillion cells in the body, instructing them how to function properly. At the same time, each part of the body is sending the brain information based on its internal and external environment at that moment.
As the brain receives and processes this information, it sends out revised commands so that the body will adequately respond to its surroundings and maintain the optimum level of good health.
These mental impulses are transmitted to and from the brain via nerves, passing through the spine. Vertebrae in the spine can- and frequently do- become misaligned and interfere with the body's natural communication process. These misalignments, called subluxation, cause messages transmitted over the spine to become garbled, modified, or diminished. As a result, the body's response is inadequate to adapt properly.
As the natural ability to adapt and respond to its environment is reduced, the body's ability to respond to challenges to its health is likewise reduced and poor health results.
Chiropractic seeks to identify and analyze subluxation. Whenever possible, the doctor of chiropractic re-opens the body's natural communication network by adjusting the misaligned spinal segment back to its correct position. With nerve function improved, bodily processes are permitted to become more normal, and the body is better able to return to its natural striving towards good health.
Chiropractic's concern then is with the correction of subluxation. Its aim is to ensure that the body's natural health-ensuring processes are allowed to fuciton without nerve interference due to misaligned vertebrae. It does NOT provide "sickness" care - "disease" care - or "symptom" care. It provides HEALTH CARE.
As a philosophy, chiropractic recognizes that the body has a natural ability to express its health potential to the fullest.
As a science, it deals with the relationship between the spinal segments and the nerve system, and the effect this relationship has on the body's innate ability to express and maintain its good health.
As an art, it entails knowledge, skill and dexterity to locate and correct subluxation that can rob the body of the ability to maintain its own health.
