As an Upper Cervical Chiropractor, I feel it is important to point out that Chiropractors have extensive education in human physiology and disease as well as a sizable database of research and objective testing substantiating the practice of Chiropractic. Medical professionals and the lay public are largely unaware of the qualifications and education of the doctor of Chiropractic.
Intent and Focus
The intent and focus of Chiropractic practice is to bring the body back into a state of balance both neurologically and structurally-creating this balance allows the body to heal itself. Chiropractic care is centered around spinal manipulation. However, we also study how the spine and its structures are related to the body’s function. A wellness Chiropractor addresses nervous system “stress”, structural imbalance and the lifestyle factors (diet, exercise, stress management) that contribute to the body’s loss of homeostasis.
Does it Work
Chiropractic is both non-drug and non-surgical. It is the third largest healing profession in the worldwide and there are approximately 70,000 Chiropractors in the United States. Millions of patients worldwide and over the last 125 years have received Chiropractic adjustments. According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health in the U.S., chiropractic therapy is the type most commonly used for back pain. However, there is a myth that chiropractors only treat back pain. In fact, chiropractic care can also help to heal pain in the foot, elbow, shoulder, and neck. An estimated 74 percent of Americans with pain in these areas have used chiropractic care at some point in their treatment. Like other forms of treatment, chiropractic care will not benefit all injuries. Sessions should be tailored to a person’s needs and performed by a licensed chiropractor.
