What is Chiropractic? PDF Print E-mail

A Natural, non-invasive approach to health care…

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism, that is controlled by the brain, spinal cord and nerves of the body. The vertebrae, which protect the nervous system, when misaligned or restricted from normal motion, can cause malfunctions of the tissue and organs throughout the body.

Chiropractic Medicine is a form of natural health care that focuses on treating a patient without the use of drugs or surgery. Doctors of Chiropractic, more commonly known as chiropractors, are primary health care providers licensed in all 50 states. Today’s leading Doctors of Chiropractic Medicine are recognized by governmental health care programs as Medicare physicians and are employed at 49 military bases including world renown Walter Reed Army Medical Center and Bethesda Naval Medical Center.  A Chiropractic Physician is also a team member of the U.S. Capitol’s Office of the Attending Physician.

Every year, more than 40 million Americans see chiropractors as part of their regular health care program and with over 84,000 licensed chiropractors nationwide and more than 10,000 students currently enrolled in chiropractic school, it is the fastest growing health care profession.

The non-surgical, drug-free healing nature of chiropractic provides benefit to the health of millions of people worldwide each year. Most chiropractic patients experience real relief and improved general well being, and continue to make regular visits as a part of their healthy lifestyle choice.

Chiropractors frequently treat individuals with problems, such as headaches, joint pain, neck pain, low back pain and sciatica. Chiropractors also treat patients with osteoarthritis, spinal disk conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, sprains, and strains.

However, the scope of conditions that chiropractors manage or provide care for is not limited to the common pains and problems listed above. Chiropractors also have the training to treat a variety of conditions such as allergies, asthma, digestive disorders, and other disorders as new research is developed.
