What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts, and as a science is based on the premise that good health depends, in part, upon a normally functioning nervous system. When body structures such as cells and organs are functioning normally, a state of health or normal physiology is said to exist.
However, when the body’s physiology is abnormal, a disease state begins. Thus, we begin to understand that abnormal physiology leads to abnormal function, predisposing the body to disease processes.
Chiropractic teaches that within the body there are well-established “survival mechanisms” designed to maintain a state of good health. The spinal cord has 31 pairs of spinal nerves which exit from the spinal column (backbone). The most delicate and important organs of the nervous system (brain and spinal cord) are encased in a hard bony covering composed of the skull and spinal vertebrae.
The spine has undergone marvelous adaptation in providing protection, mobility, and weight bearing support for our upright position. The spine, in particular, offers protection to the delicate spinal cord and spinal nerves which exit from the spinal column. Irritation to the nervous system can occur when spinal bio-mechanics are com – promised and thus not functioning properly.
What Does a Doctor Of Chiropractic Do?
The examination of your spine to evaluate structure and function is what makes chiropractic different from other health care procedures. All doctors use a standard procedure of examination to diagnose a patient’s condition in order to arrive at a plan of treatment.
Your doctor of chiropractic uses the same time honored methods of consultation, case history, physical examination, laboratory analysis and X-ray examination.
In addition, he or she provides a careful chiropractic structural examination, with emphasis on the spine.
Accidents, falls, uneven stress, tension, over-exertion or any other factor which may cause an inability of the spine to move as a dynamic organ can result in minor displacements or derangements of one or more of these vertebrae, causing irritation to spinal nerve roots directly by pressure or indirectly through reflexes.
