Chiropractic is a
branch of the health sciences which focuses upon the body's
neuromusculoskeletal system. A chiropractor is concerned with how your body's
skeletal and nervous system is functioning. Since your spine is the key highway
for your central nervous system, a chiropractor is trained to use a variety of
diagnostic methods to examine and treat your spine and bone structure.
Although the major focus of chiropractic is on
the spine and central nervous system, your chiropractor is concerned with the
wellness of your whole body. Since your nervous system determines how well you
feel physically, mentally, and emotionally, many problems you are experiencing
may be related to a problem with your spine and nervous system.
The Chiropractic Philosophy
believe in whole body wellness. Wellness means many things to different people.
To your chiropractor, wellness is the state of health where your body is free of
interruption or interference to any part of your nervous system, enabling you
full expression and enjoyment of life.
Chiropractic care works to ensure that your
nervous system is working fine, and this enhances your well being. Your
chiropractor will discover any problems that are interfering with your nervous
system and through hands-on-healing will work with you to eliminate them.
After chiropractic care your body will be better
able to heal itself. This, in turn, aids your body in maintaining optimum health
and contributes to your overall wellness. Chiropractors believe in a holistic
approach to health and healing, and have spearheaded this powerful health care
trend in North America.
