What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic doctors practice natural, drugless, non-invasive health care and rely on the body's ability to heal itself. Chiropractic physicians look at the whole person. Like other healthcare providers, we follow a standard routine to gain information about the patient. We consult, review the case history, conduct a physical examination, and may request laboratory analyses and/or x-rays. However, unlike other healthcare providers, chiropractic physicians also conduct a careful analysis of the patient's physical structure and pay particular attention to the spine. We consider lifestyle, diet, exercise, and how you deal with stress. Chiropractic physicians seek the origin of the problem. Using this information, a diagnosis is made. Included in the diagnosis is the probable reason for your pain or discomfort. It is important to note that chiropractors seek the origin of the illness in order to eliminate it-we do not simply treat the symptoms. If your house is on fire, do you simply cut the fire alarm, or do you put water on the fire? Similarly, if the migraine headache is being caused by a misaligned vertebra, dysfunctional gland, and an irritated or compressed nerve, do you continue to take pain killers indefinitely and only cover up the problem, or do you correct the misalignment or dysfunction to reduce the pain? Chiropractic physicians fix the origin of the problem. A vertebral subluxation or fixation is a misalignment of the bones that protect the spinal cord. The severity of the subluxation can vary, and there are a number of potential contributing factors including physical, emotional, mental, or biochemical components affecting the misalignment. A subluxation may be caused by any number of conditions, including trauma at birth, an automobile accident, or simple repetition or overuse.
