Basis Of Philosophy
Chiropractic philosophy is based upon the fact that every single cell, tissue, and organ is controlled by the nervous system. We are all born with an innate healing ability or innate wisdom which is constantly at work to maintain our bodies in a state of health or heal us when we are in a state of disease.
As Simple As That
The brain, the spinal cord and the peripheral nerves that exit the spine make up the nervous system. They are the information highway of the body. Any disruption of this communication between the brain and the body or innate wisdom from spinal misalignment (subluxations) can result in a state of disease or symptoms. The Doctor of Chiropractic detects and corrects these spinal misalignments (subluxations), restoring normal nerve impulses to the body allowing the body’s own innate healing capabilities to function optimally. It’s as simple as that.
“The disease is not an entity, but a fluctuating condition of the patient’s body, a battle between the substance of disease and the natural self-healing tendency of the body.”– Hippocrates
