"The Doctor of the future will give no medicine,
but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame,
in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease."

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that the nervous system,
your brain and spinal cord, controls the function of every cell,
tissue, organ and system in the body. Your body is much like the
Internet: your brain is your computer, your spinal cord is the
information highway, your spinal vertebrae which house nerves, arteries
and veins are the links to your organs, such as heart, lungs,
intestines, reproductive organs. The disruption of the function of
these tissues or organs and the nerve control is called VSC or
Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Chiropractic is the science of finding
these areas of spinal malfunction, the art of correcting them and the
philosophy of all things natural as we have been created.
The Art Our doctors master the "art" of chiropractic. This includes a comprehensive patient evaluation, a review of health history, arrival at a clear diagnosis and a recommended specific treatment plan customized for each patient. The patient care process involves administering specific spinal adjustments. The word adjustment describes the many hundreds of ways and techniques of directed and controlled pressure to restore spinal segments to a more normal position and range of motion. The art of chiropractic involves effectively identifying areas of spinal joint dysfunction and biomechanical imbalance then knowing how to improve it. Chiropracic is truly an art.
The Philosophy Chiropractic philosophy recognizes that the power that created the body can heal the body - as long as there is no interference. The doctor does not heal you, he is a co-facilitator with you for your body to be put in the correct environment to heal itself. The main purpose of the chiropractor is to reduce interference to your inborn, innate healing ability.
