What is Chiropractor Care?
What is Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic healthcare is a branch of the healing arts based on the scientific fact that our nervous system controls or influences the function of every cell in our body. Interference to the nervous system (caused by the Vertebral Subluxation Complex or Nerve Impingement Syndrome) will effect how the nervous system relates to the cells to which it travels.
The term "Chiropractic" comes from the Greek words "cheiro and praktikos" meaning "done by hand." The Chiropractic model of health is centered on the philosophy that the human body, being knit together in a wonderful way, will heal itself given the right opportunity and circumstances. Doctors of Chiropractic (DCs) essentially promote the healing process by minimizing nerve interference.
When do you need a Chiropractor?
The purpose of the Chiropractic approach to healthcare (the wellness model) is to uncover your health conditions, not merely cover up your symptoms. The absence of symptoms (pain) does not equal good health! The clearest way to illustrate this is by reviewing the statistics on heart attacks. Research reveals that in approximately 33% of all heart attacks, the first symptom of the attack is death!
Wellness care encompasses several aspects of overall health, which can be physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.
Most people are unaware that today's Doctors of Chiropractic undergo virtually the same intense education process as Medical and Osteopathic students for the first two years of professional school. Medical students and Chiropractic students alike, spend a tremendous amount of time studying anatomy, physiology, neurology and other basic sciences. The main difference during the first two years is that Medical students have a heavy emphasis on pharmacology (study of prescription drugs) and Chiropractic students emphasize nutrition and natural alternatives to drugs.
The programs take a different turn after the first two years. Medical students prepare for the “trade” by rotating each month to different medical specialties such as pediatrics, orthopedics and family medicine.
The second two years of education for Chiropractic students focuses on learning the tools of their “trade.” Chiropractic treatment today can be effective using manual and computer controlled care.
Both doctors of Medicine and Chiropractic are very well trained to treat their respective patients utilizing the skills of their professions. The most promising and encouraging change in today's treatment environment is that many healthcare clinics provide both Chiropractic and Medical care for their patients.

Nerve Impingement Syndrome
Nerve Impingement Syndrome (NIS), or a Subluxation, occurs when a misalignment of one or more of the joints in the spine places pressure on a nerve. Nerves communicate from the brain through the spinal cord and nervous system. Pressure on the nerves can cause interference with the transmitted signal. This can cause pain and/or discomfort, as well as other symptoms.
In addition to pain, other symptoms of Nerve Impingement Syndrome Include:
Headaches • Fatigue • Sleep Disturbances
Sinus and Allergy Issues • Mood Swings • Digestive Problems
Are you among the thousands that are suffering needlessly because of a lack of understanding of your symptoms? If so, would not you like to relieve these symptoms and return to a happier, healthier lifestyle?
Cause... The misalignment of a joint is called Nerve Impingement Syndrome or a Subluxation. This can develop for a variety of reasons, including an accident trauma, poor posture or diet, lack of or incorrect exercise, a sports or repetitive motion injury, relationship or financial stress.
It is the Subluxation that creates the Nerve Impingement Syndrome that prevents you from enjoying all of life pleasures.

Nerve Impingement Syndrome Facts:
Your Nervous System
Chiropractic care can be the key to detecting the cause of your problem. If detected early enough, Chiropractic adjustments can often return the joint to its normal position, releasing the pressure on the nerve and eliminating the Nerve Impingement Syndrome.
Your Chiropractor''s job is to relieve as much Nerve Impingement Syndrome as possible. By allowing the nervous system to freely transport the nerve impulses throughout your body, you will begin to feel like new again; free to enjoy life to the fullest! Chiropractors work to achieve the highest level of function for your body, relieving the pain, eliminating the symptoms. With the help of modern technology, the job of improving your health just got easier. Many people learned the importance of proper nervous system function as they watched the story of actor Christopher Reeves unfold. He played Superman in the movies. A horseback riding accident damaged his spinal cord in a very dramatic way and the consequences were profound.
There is also a basic simple fact, that if one can grasp and remember, will make true sense on a very basic, instinctive level. This is called “innate intelligence,” the wisdom that our bodies know what is right. Breaking down the complexity of spinal anatomy, neurology and physiology into a simple, usable and reproducible idea would go something like this: The brain controls and regulates every system, organ, cell and tissue in the body through the nerves.
The nerves are our wiring system with hundreds of thousands of nerves running throughout the body. They transmit chemicals and electrical impulses to tell the body how to function. If they can do this without interruption from outside influences, then the body would have the ability to function at a near perfect state, which we can call health. If the nervous system is assaulted or interfered with however, it will either not be able to send a signal at all or only send a partial signal to its final destination. This might be a muscle, an adrenal gland, the stomach or another organ or tissue. The nervous system can be assaulted through obvious ways like direct and severe trauma as was the case with Christopher Reeves or, less obviously, through poor posture, sports, minor falls or simply bumping your head.
