All About Chiropractic
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease." - attributed to Thomas Edison
Only the body can heal itself.
The Science Behind Chiropractic
Chiropractic care is based on the scientific knowledge that the nervous system controls every part of the body, connecting each cell to the brain. Your brain is protected by your skull, but your spinal cord is naturally more vulnerable because it is surrounded by 24 moving vertebrae. When any one of these bones changes it’s natural position, your nervous system can become irritated. Any interruption to the nervous system disrupts the function of the tissues or organs the nerves control, leading to health issues.
Each Doctor of Chiropractic goes through four years of post-graduate college education to master the “art” of adjusting the spine. Instead of covering up your symptoms with drugs, chiropractic looks to correct the underlying cause. Doctors of Chiropractic know scientifically how to locate areas of spinal joint dysfunction, and combine the art of correcting them, to holistically heal the body.
The Art of Chiropractic Correction
Your chiropractic doctor will prescribe a specific care program for you taking in consideration your health history. You doctor may recommend spinal adjustments. A chiropractic adjustment is a carefully directed and controlled pressure to restore spinal bones to a more normal position or motion. When spinal function is improved, the entire nervous system will improve. Your nervous system controls everything.
THE CHIROPRACTIC LIFESTYLE
Chiropractors are trained experts in the care of the bones, nerves, muscles and connective tissues that make up about 60% of your body. Ask your Doctor of Chiropractic for more information about a care program that may include specific spinal adjustments, exercise recommendations, nutritional advice or other holistic methods of care based on your health history, age, current condition and lifestyle.
Is your child suffering from an Ear Infection?
Ear infections are affecting children in epidemic numbers. By the end of age three, over two-thirds of all children have had one or more episodes of otitis media or middle ear infection with most undergoing medical care.
Today we find more and more parents visiting chiropractors for their children's ear infections (often after first going to the medical route without resolution of the problem).
What can Chiropractic do for these children?
Chiropractors relieve the body of a serious stress the Subluxation, a distortion in your body that interferes with your proper function. Correcting or removing Subluxation through Chiropractic care is essential for anyone with ear infections. In fact, Chiropractic care has an excellent record of safety and effectiveness for infants and children suffering from ear infections.
An example of how chiropractic can help a child suffering from ear infections is best revealed in this story of a child who had been on antibiotics for six years and who had ear tube surgery.
A nine year-old- boy with chronic ear infections came to my chiropractic office. Five years prior, tubes were put in his ears. The child was scheduled for another ear surgery and to have his swollen tonsils and adenoids removed.... They both stopped complaining about his ears after the first chiropractic adjustment. The ears, tonsils and adenoids returned to normal size. The ENT doctor cancelled surgery and at five-month follow-up the child remained free of ear infections, sore throats, colds and was off all medications.
Another paper describes two case studies. In the first case, a six-month-old boy was scheduled for ear tube surgery. After one chiropractic adjustment, his ear infection cleared within 24 hours. The surgery was cancelled. The other case is of two girls aged three and four with chronic ear infections and upper respiratory dysfunction. Both conditions resolved after one office visit.
