What is Chiropractic ?
Chiropractic care is the third largest primary health care profession in the world.
It is a safe, effective, non-invasive, natural health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.
Chiropractic philosophy embraces the belief that "The power that made the body heals the body." and that by removing disorders and interference in the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, the body will naturally manifest it's own healing abilities.
Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, sciatica, neck pain, numbness, tingling and pain in the joints of the arms or legs and headaches. Chiropractic has also been shown to be effective in relieving chronic pain, knee pain, ankle pain, carpel tunnel, TMJ pain, plantar fascitis, allergies and asthma.
DOES IT WORK?
Research shows that spinal adjustments performed by chiropractors have superior results in: reducing back pain, reducing neck pain, reducing headache pain and increasing range of movement in joints. Although there are cases where traditional medical treatment is necessary, the preferred course of treatment should always be drug free and noninvasive.
IS IT SAFE?
Chiropractic is the safest form of treatment as proven in numerous studies. For example, a review by Paul Jaskoviak, D.C., D.A.C.A.N., reporting on the National College of Chiropractic Clinic's experience during a 15 year period, concluded that 5 million chiropractic treatments were performed without a single case of vertebral artery injury or stroke. There is no clinical or case controlled study that demonstrates or even implies that chiropractic spinal adjustment is unsafe in the treatment of lower back pain. In fact, the literature suggests that chiropractic manipulation is safer than medical treatment of lower back pain.
IS IT REPUTABLE?
Chiropractic care is based on years of study and research into the biomechanics of the human body and the cause and effect that injuries have on the spinal system, as well as the overall health of an individual. Chiropractic research and its effectiveness in treating many common problems is readily documented. The chiropractic profession has undergone six "formal" government inquiries during the past 20 years.
All of these inquiries have found contemporary chiropractic health care to be safe and cost-effective.
IS IT EXPENSIVE?
No! To the contrary, chiropractic is the most affordable primary and alternative healthcare today! There is an overwhelming body of evidence indicating that chiropractic management of lower back pain is more cost-effective than medical management. Prevention is the answer to the health care crisis in the world today. If we can enable the body to prevent disease from occurring, health care costs will decrease and the quality of life will increase.
