What is Chiropractic?


"Chiropractic is a philosophy, science, and art of things natural; a system of adjusting the segments of the spinal column (vertebrae) by hand only, for the correction of the cause of dis-ease."  -R.W. Stephenson.

 

In other words, it's primary objective is to locate and correct vertebral subluxations by adjusting the spine to remove nerve interference and allow your body's innate ability to heal.

 

Every level of human performance is regulated by body chemistry. That is to say that everything you do and everything that you are is a result of your body producing chemicals. It is your brain, through your nerve system, that controls, coordinates and regulates your organs and glands to produce your body chemistry at the right time and place, made in just the right quantity and quality. The bones of the spine house and protect your very delicate lifeline; spinal cord and related nerve roots (extensions of your spinal cord that divide and re-divide to form a nerve system).

 

The only job of an objective straight chiropractor is to locate vertebral subluxations and to introduce a gentle force so your body may make the correction. This correction will allow your brain to properly communicate, to control and regulate, your chemical-producing organs and glands. When your body chemistry is in balance, and ONLY when your body chemistry is in balance, can your body function properly. And when your body functions properly it can perform the way it was designed to perform: at peak levels.

What is Innate Intelligence?
A "living thing" has an inborn intelligence within its body, called Innate Intelligence.  It is a God-given constructive power, that is of perfect quality in all living things, that communicates to establish balance, and homeostasis, by adapting to internal and external forces, for the optimal expression of life. 

 

"To express the individualized intelligence which runs all the functions of our bodies during our wakeful and sleeping hours, I chose the name Innate. Innate-born with"  -Daniel David Palmer, D.C. Founder of Chiropractic.

 

What is a Subluxation?
In simplest terms, a subluxation (a.k.a. Vertebral Subluxation) is when one or more of the bones of your spine (vertebrae) have lost their normal motion from the vertebrae above or below (move out of position) and create pressure on, or irritate spinal nerves. Spinal nerves are the nerves that come out from between each of the bones in your spine. This pressure or irritation on the nerves then causes those nerves to malfunction and interfere with the signals traveling over those nerves.
