What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is an alternative form of medicine that literally translates from the Greek language meaning the "practical use of the hands". The art and science of chiropractic requires proper diagnosis from information received by the doctors hands combined with his/her clinical judgment and reasoning. With the primary form of treatment being a chiropractic adjustment, a modality delivered effectively with the use of the doctors hands, chiropractic remains a true therapeutic art as well as science.

The core principle of chiropractic is studying and assessing the dynamic and complex relationship between the anatomical structure and function of nerves, muscles, and bones. The overall health of the neuromusculokeletal system is determined upon many factors including mobility, flexibility, physical strength, nutritional status, optimal spinal alignment, and joint lubrication. It is the chiropractor's responsibility to fully assess these dynamic relationships, identify risk factors that may be contributing to sub-optimal neuromusculoskeletal conditions, and treat appropriately.

The main focus of chiropractic is to attend to joints that are out of place or are not moving correctly, known as a subluxation or joint dysfunction.  All joint dysfunction, regardless of the location, are treated with a chiropractic adjustment in otherwise healthy individuals.  The ultimate goal of chiropractic is to keep bones, joints, ligaments, and tendons in healthy working order to prevent future injury and improve the quality of life of each individual patient.

Although chiropractors are most known for the management and treatment of pain, the benefits of chiropractic extends well beyond the musculoskeletal system.  A well educated chiropractor understands that each organ and muscle of the body is controlled by nerves that exit the spinal column.  Spinal misalignment may lead to downstream sub-optimal organ and muscle function by adding stress to the nerves exiting the effected spinal segment. When symptoms present anywhere in the body, a proper spinal screening should always be included in the work-up to assess for spinal misalignment.

Every individual should consider including chiropractic into their preventative healthcare routine to ensure optimal wellness.
