When a patient seeks Chiropractic care, and when a chiropractor accepts a patient for such care, it is essential that both are seeking and working towards the same goals.
Chiropractic has only one goal. It is important that the patient understand this goal and the means that will be used to attain it. In this way, there will be no confusion, misunderstanding, or disappointment.
Patients usually want to get rid of whatever ailments or conditions are bothering them. This, however, IS NOT the goal of the Chiropractor.
First, so that you may have a better understanding, let’s define what health really is.
Health is a condition of wholeness in which all of the organs are functioning 100% all of the time. (Webster) The purpose of the nervous system is to control and coordinate all bodily function. Interference to this master system produces improper function in the body.
A vertebral subluxation is a misalignment of one or more vertebrae which alters nerve function. The resulting nerve interference causes a state of dis-ease or lack of harmony in the body. This causes a reduction in your body’s ability to function properly.
The goal of Chiropractic is to locate, analyze and correct these vertebral subluxations. The Chiropractic method of correction is by specific adjustments of the spine. These adjustments are intended to remove vertebral subluxations, thereby allowing the proper transmission of nerve energy over your nerve pathways so that every part of your body may have a proper nerve supply at all times. This allows the innate (inborn, natural) healing abilities of the body to work at maximum efficiency, allowing you to express your innate potential to the best of the body’s ability.
With a proper nerve supply restored through Chiropractic adjustments, the body can begin the process of repair leading to health. In some patients this happens quickly; in others, more slowly. In some patients the repair and maintenance is complete; in others; only partial.
We do not offer to diagnose or treat any disease or condition other than vertebral subluxation. OUR ONLY GOAL IS TO ALLOW THE BODY TO DO ITS JOB. Our only method is the spinal adjustment of vertebral subluxations.share
