Why Choose a Chiropractor?“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.”
Thomas A. Edison


Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body. Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and millions of nerves. Your brain is protected by the skull, and your spinal cord by the 24 moving bones of the spine. Many everyday activities can cause these spinal bones to lose their normal position or motion. This can result in nervous system dysfunction and ultimately, ill health. Chiropractic is the only profession dedicated to the detection and correction of Vertebral Subluxation Complex (VSC). VSC occurs when there is an interference to the nerve system caused by the movable bones of the spine. VSC is the underlying cause of many health problems. Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that the nervous system controls virtually every cell, tissue, organ and system of the body. Therefore, therapies are based on the fact that disease is often caused by interference with nerve function. And using spinal adjustment to bring nerves back “on line” means restoration of the normal nerve function, in a natural, non-stress method, and without drugs.


Chiropractic adjustments are safer than aspirin, muscle relaxers, and back surgery. Dozens of research studies have documented the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic adjustments. When compared with traditional approaches, chiropractic care is remarkably safe. In fact, millions of chiropractic adjustments are safely delivered to satisfied patients every day!


Today’s Doctor of Chiropractic is well educated. After completing the same undergraduate study that other types of doctors get, chiropractic doctors receive still another 4 years of postgraduate college education. Before practicing, they pass a rigorous National Board Examination and meet stringent licensing requirements. To keep up with the latest research, doctors attend seminars, scientific symposia, and read professional journals.


(Also known as Vertebral Subluxation Complex.) A misalignment of one or more of the vertebra of the spinal column, which causes alteration of nerve functions and interference to the transmission of mental impulses resulting in a lessening of the body’s innate ability to express its maximum health potential.

When the nerve impulses to the heart, lungs, joints, sexual organs, skin, eyes, ears, and the brain itself are improved, the true benefits of chiropractic are experienced. Chiropractic Definitions The true benefits of chiropractic care are the preventive benefits: better night’s sleep, more energy, better nerve system function. No one can show you the jar containing the appendix, gall bladder, the tonsils, or the lung that wasn’t removed because your body regained its health under chiropractic care. No one can tell you about the disease you didn’t come down with because your unsubluxated body was too healthy to come down with it. Scar tissues take a long time to heal and it may take months or years of spinal adjustments before your spine is strong again. The earlier you begin chiropractic care the better; the longer you wait, the more scar tissue builds up. Don’t settle for less. Many people visit their doctors of chiropractic only when they’re sick or in pain. That’s a lot better than resorting to drugs or surgery, but chiropractic has so much more to offer. Keep your spine free of vertebral subluxation so it may continue healing; so that it may promote a healthier body, with less stress, more energy and greater resistance to disease. Why be content to be merely free from pain when you can also ensure better health, vitality, and strength for yourself and your entire family for your entire lives?
