The Science

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that the nervous system, mainly your brain and spinal cord, controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body.  Your body is much like the Internet: your brain is your computer, your spinal cord is the information highway, your spinal vertebrae which house nerves, arteries and veins are the links to your organs, such as the heart, lungs, intestines, and reproductive organs.  The disruption of the function of these tissues or organs and their nerve control is called the Vertebral Subluxation Complex or VSC. Chiropractic is the science of finding these areas of spinal malfunction.

The Art

After a comprehensive evaluation, a review of your health history, and arrival at a clear diagnosis, a specific customized treatment plan is recommended for you.  This includes specific spinal adjustments, physical therapy and therapeutic exercises. The spinal adjustment describes many hundreds of ways and techniques of directed and controlled pressure used to restore each spinal segment to a more normal position and function restoring the nervous system to its properly functioning state.  Chiropractic is truly an art as each person is not the same and must be treated accordingly. Our doctor has mastered the “art” of chiropractic adjusting.

The Philosophy

Chiropractic philosophy recognizes that the power that created the body can heal the body – as long as there is no interference.  The doctor does not heal you; he is a co-facilitator with you for your body to be put in the correct environment to heal itself.  The main purpose of the chiropractor is to reduce interference to your inborn, innate healing ability.  The power that made the body, heals the body.  Better health does not come from better chemistry or drugs.  If that were so, we would be the healthiest people in the world, and we all know that that is not true.
