What is Chiropractic
Chiropractic is a Philosophy, Science, and Art of things Natural; a system of adjusting the articulation of the spinal column, by hand, for the correction of the cause of dis-ease. The adult spinal column consists of the superior 24 freely movable bone segments, called vertebrae, together with the sacrum and coccyx. All the great nerve trunks emit through the openings between the vertebrae which are known as the intervertebral foramina. The vital nerve force within people is carried by these nerve trunks from the brain to the various organs, muscles, and tissues of the body. For every effect you must have a cause; that is a fundamental law of physics. If a person is ill, then the condition of disease, regardless of the name applied to it, is in fact an effect for which there must be a cause. The Chiropractic premise is that the cause of disease is due to the subluxation of vertebrae, which produce pressure upon the nerve trunks and thus interfere with the normal transmission of vital nerve force. The Chiropractic objective is to locate the point in the spine where nerve pressure exists, due to a vertebral subluxation, and, thru proper spinal adjustments by hand, to restore the subluxated vertebra to its normal position, thus releasing the pressure on the nerves involved and thereby removing the cause of dis-ease in the body. Renewed health is the natural result. This same principle can be applied to our extremities, where we can have a misalignment in our extremities that can be corrected with an adjustment, restoring the function to the extremity.
