Chiropractic is the science, art and philosophy with unique approach of looking at the cause of disease not just the treatment of symptoms.
A chiropractor examination is targeted at the spine with a “hands on” approach to the assessment of the spine and its contiguous structures of the spine.
Chiropractors are often thought of as back or bone doctors, however, they are more specifically evaluating the nervous system. The nervous system is the master controller that regulates every cell, tissue, organ and systems of the body. The nervous system consists of the brain, the spinal cord and 31 spinal nerves. Each of these spinal nerves exits the spinal cord between the vertebrae at specific levels from the base of the skull to the coccyx. Chiropractor’s asses the spine thoroughly because it is the vertebral bones that move out of position, that pinches the spinal nerve (like a kink in a garden hose) which interrupts the transmission of nerve impulses or messages to and from the brain. This interruption to the nervous system circuit is a Subluxation.
This can be explain by the Safety Pin Cycle Diagram below.
Pin 1. Nerve signals travel to and from the brain to regulate every cell, organ and tissue in the body
Pin 2. Subluxations in your spine disrupt the nerve signals. The body’s ability to function and heal itself is diminished. Health challenges will result over time.
Pin 3. Adjustment
Chiropractors find subluxations and correct them with adjustments to reconnect your brain with your body so health can return.
Pin 4. Normal flow resumes… health returns.
