Doctors of chiropractic- often referred to as Chiropractors or chiropractic physicians, diagnose and treat patients with a hands on approach. Chiropractors are also trained to recommend rehab/functional exercises as well as provide nutritional and lifestyle advice.
Vertebral misalignment or subluxation is quite a common occurrence. What this means is that sometimes, due to either physical, chemical or emotional changes in your body or environment, your spine can move out of its optimal and healthy alignment. This misalignment can place pressure on your nervous system. When this occurs, vital nerve messages that run through your entire body are interrupted and this may be the cause of many of the health problems we are exposed to in our daily lives.
Most people have never had their spine checked, hence their bodies are most likely not performing as well as they potentially could be. Chiropractors are specially trained to locate areas of misalignment or areas where spinal stress occurs through a thorough examination. Soft tissue massage as well as specific spinal adjustments can help reduce the irritation to the nervous system.
The doctor of the future will give no medication , but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease
