What Is Chiropractic
What is Chiropractic? Great question! Chiropractic is the science, art, and philosophy of getting the sick well and keeping the healthy well. What is chiropractic? Well, unfortunately in our profession many have mixed thoughts about what is chiropractic. Important and interesting to remember that the first chiropractic adjustment was not for lower back pain and just consisted of using hands as an instrument. The reason why many people have mixed up feelings about chiropractic is because chiropractors are not the same! So, what is chiropractic? Chiropractic is addressing the causative factors of your distress and dysfunction. Where does the distress or dysfunction stem from? It comes from your nerve system. Your nerve system controls all organs, cell’s, tissues, glands, cycles, and ALL functions of your body! If you have a bad experience in life and it affects how you function, you have to blame your nerve system. All diseases processes begin in your inability to adapt from your nerve system. So, you still kind of didn’t answer the question about what is chiropractic! Chiropractic focuses on your nerve system and specifically your spinal column. Chiropractors are nerve system specialists that apply specific chiropractic adjustments to restore your bodies function! Chiropractic allows your body to work above, down, and inside and out, not outside in (drugs).
What is chiropractic can be a very challenging question to tell people. Nope, not really! In our office and many like ours we utilize the Gonstead system which allows us to thoroughly access your nerve system and deliver specific chiropractic adjustments. Not every chiropractic office utilizes the Gonstead system, which doesn’t mean they don’t perform specific chiropractic adjustments! What is chiropractic? Chiropractic is not walking into an office and having nutritional supplements, thera-bands, and hot-packs pushed upon you. Now, we are not saying there is not a time and place for those extra things, but it is not chiropractic. Chiropractic is specifically “Done By Hand.” Once you have a specific chiropractic adjustment those nerves have no other option but to do one thing. That option is to TURN ON AND HEAL! What do you mean by heal? If you have a bone that is causing dysfunction on your nerves, a chiropractic adjustment removes the interference so your nerve heals, which means your body heals! The healing process is profound and will continue to strengthen your body so you do not have to rely on a crutch! Granted our short blog is just a tip of the iceberg when it comes to answering the question what is chiropractic, but its a start! Get your nerves checked by a chiropractor!
