WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC?

Chiropractic is a philosophy, science and art. It is a healing system that aligns all the joints on vertebrae of spine to remove a cause of disease. Spine consists of 24 freely movable vertebrae, 2 illii, sacrum and coccyx.
Spinal nerves come from Intervertebral foramina, which are holes on the sides between two vertebrae. Vital energy and information from brain are transmitted to all organs, muscles or other body tissues through spinal nerves.
Physically speaking, various results have their causes. Chiropractic theory assumes the cause of disease is a misalignment of spinal vertebrae resulting in stress on spinal nerves that interfere transmission of vital energy.
The goal of chiropractic is to find segmental misalignment of spine and correct it to its original position and becoming healthy. Various factors can cause misalignment of spine (subluxation) from early stage of life. Normal alignment of spine and flexibility of body is essential to keep your body healthy and long living.


THE HISTORY OF CHIROPRACTIC

Many aspects of chiropractic were a natural part of health care as practiced by many civilizations for thousands of years, but they had been largely forgotten by the time D.D. Palmer performed the first modem chiropractic spinal adjustment on his deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, in Davenport, Iowa, in the year 1895.
As he watched Lillard's hearing return, Palmer thought at first that he had discovered a cure for deafness. Patients with the flu, sciatica, stomach ailments, menstrual troubles, migraine headaches, epilepsy, heart problems, and many other conditions responded to his new "hand treatments" (as he first called them), Palmer came to realize that he had discovered something more far-reaching.
But what? Palmer was not giving his patients' pills, drugs or medicines. He was not performing :surgery. People were getting over a wide variety of conditions that were seemingly unrelated. Fevers broke, infections an d pain disappeared, hearing returned, vision improved, digestive disorders cleared. Why?
Palmer immersed himself once again in studies of anatomy and physiology and in the course of his research began to understand that what his "hand treatments" were doing was to realign vertebral subluxations (discussed below) and release nerve pressure. As he later wrote, this practice was not new. "I am not the first person to replace subluxated vertebrae, for this art have been practiced for thousands of years. I do claim, however, to be the first to replace displaced vertebrae by using the spinous and transverse process as levers."


HOW DO WE GET VERTEBRAL SUBLUXATIONS?

Vertebral subluxations have many causes. They may occur as early as infancy as a result of a difficult birth, the use of forceps, or questionable obstetrical procedures. Childhood falls and injuries take their toll on our spinal columns; emotional stress gradually weakens our spines throughout our lives.
Although the spinal column is well protected by muscles and interlocking joints, sudden traumas-automobile collisions, sports injuries, on-the-job accidents- may upset the spinal structure and cause spinal nerve stress or "pinched nerves."
In our society vertebral subluxations have proliferated to the point where they can be termed a "hidden epidemic," effecting nearly everyone on a lesser or greater scale. It is for that reason that everyone needs to have him or herself checked for the condition by a doctor of chiropractic.


THE CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT

Using a number of tools, the doctor of chiropractic analyzes the body for vertebral subluxations and corrects or removes any that he finds, using various spinal adjustment techniques.
Among the many tools that chiropractors use in order to determine the presence and whereabouts of subluxations are the x-ray; thermographic and neurocalographic studies (the analysis of body temperature patterns); posture analysis; muscle testing (applied kinesiology); and muscle and motion analysis. In correcting subluxations' chiropractors usually use their hands but may avail themselves as well of a variety of spinal adjustment instruments. Practitioners spend ten years of study to master the various techniques of spinal analysis and adjustment.
There are at least forty different spinal analysis and adjusting techniques designed to locate and correct vertebral subluxations. Most chiropractors use them selectively, depending on their patients needs.
When you walk into a chiropractor's office today, you will most likely be in the company of people suffering from a wide variety of conditions: children with colds or ear infections; women with menstrual problems; men and women with spinal pain or disc problems, arthritis, insomnia, stress or anxiety, vision or eye problems, headaches, allergies, high blood pressure-the list is long! Yet, as we have been discussing, the goal of the doctor of chiropractic is not the treatment of disease but rather the enhancement of health and wholeness through the reduction of spinal nerve stress.


A UNIQUE PLACE

Chiropractic occupies a unique place in modem health care. On the one hand, it draws upon modem scientific knowledge and techniques. On the other, it utilizes the ancient concepts of self-healing, vitalism, life energy, harmony, natural healing, the innate wisdom of the body, and "dis-ease."
So if you are tired of being sick and tired, worn out from the medical run-around, and looking for a natural method of regaining health and wholeness without polluting your body with chemicals, why not join the millions who have discovered the wonders of this amazing health care system.
