What is Chiropractic?
Taking A Natural Systemic Approach To Healing
Chiropractic is an overall way of looking at the human body. It's based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing. The body is in essence completely controlled by the brain through its connection via the spinal cord and the vast networks of nerves that make up the body. When this system is not functioning at its peak, the overall performance of the human body is lacking.
In the chiropractic world, drugs and medicine are not utilized as a form of treating a patient. While supplementation and nutrition are almost always a part of the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as band-aids to treat symptoms. Chiropractors find the root cause of the problem and treat it accordingly.
It is often perceived that a chiropractor is only capable of treating back and neck pain, however chiropractors diagnose and treat a wide range of health conditions. Chiropractors not only treat soft and hard tissue problems but are largely called on to deal with more significant issues. Some of these issues include fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, headaches and many more.
