Philosophy of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic is a branch of the healing arts that utilizes no drugs or surgery in its health-care discipline as its approach to good health. The scientific premise that a normally functioning nervous system will allow a normally existing physiological state of health for the body are the goal of the Chiropractor. This type of physician utilizes the spinal column as the access to the nervous system for the optimum state of health. The doctor manually adjusts (manipulates) the spine into the normal position, thereby restoring nerve impulses and joint mobility. In addition, a Chiropractor may utilize exercise, vitamins, therapy or other adjunctive procedures as an aid to this approach.
