Chiropractic (Greek: done by hand) is a health care profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on general health. There is an emphasis on manual techniques, including joint adjustment and/or manipulation, with a particular focus on joint vertebral subluxation/dysfunction.
The examination of the spine to evaluate structure and function is what makes chiropractic different from other health care procedures. Vertebral subluxation is a term often used by Chiropractors to refer to the misalignment of the spinal vertebrae. As the vertebrae of the spine move out of alignment, it can cause the compression or irritation of spinal nerves that results in painful symptoms.
Accidents, falls, stress, tension, overexertion, and countless other factors can result in a displacements of the spinal column. Chiropractors helps reducing or eliminating this irritation to spinal nerves through spinal adjustment (Chiropractic technique that are high velocity low amplitude thrust into the affected joints).
Chiropractic also places an emphasis on nutritional and exercise programs, wellness and lifestyle modifications for promoting physical and mental health.
WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?
The human body has self-adjusting and recuperative
ability. Chiropractic emphasizes on leading and
elaborating this ability to raise the self-healing ability in
the body without using of drugs.
Through Chiropractic adjustment of the spine, and by
restoring the spinal alignment, the self- healing ability of
the human body is "activated". Chiropractors not only
help with body aches and pains (symptoms), they locate
the location of subluxation and correct it to help the
body restore it's normal function.
Therefore, OPTIMAL SPINE = OPTIMAL HEALTH
Human nervous system controls the function of each cell, muscle, organ and other systems, including respiratory, digestive, and circulatory and immunization system. When nervous system is normal, true health is ensured.
