What Is Chiropractic Care?

Doctors Angela and Rafael Lopez Adjusting PatientsUpper Cervical Chiropractic Health Care is a natural, conservative, drugless, non-surgical form of health care that focuses on the health of one’s nervous system to help people get well and stay well. Doctors of Chiropractic do not treat the symptoms of sickness or disease.

They detect and correct spinal misalignments (called subluxations) that cause nerve system dysfunction. Prolonged dysfunction of the nerve system causes Dis-Ease in the body which leads to dysfunction of various cells, tissues, organs, and systems in the body. Optimal health for your entire body requires proper communication to and from your brain through your nerve system to every part of your body!

The basic philosophy and science of Chiropractic is that the full expression of life and health in the body is directly related to the proper function and health of the Central Nervous System (CNS; aka spinal cord). The CNS is the most important organ in the body! It communicates that message of proper function and health to every cell, tissue, organ, and system in the body. Although we can’t see this communication, we can measure its function.

One of the most important functions of the Spine, is to protect the CNS. If you’ve ever had an injury to your spine, recent or past, regardless if you’re experiencing decreased health anywhere in your body, consider having your spine and CNS checked by your Chiropractor. Many times we don’t remember an injury to our spine, or overlook small injuries. We also forget that the process of birth can be traumatic to our spine and CNS, and often goes un-noticed or un-checked. Many times we won’t experience the decreased health and dysfunction side-effects for weeks, months, or years later. This makes it difficult to connect the two as cause and effect.

Doctors Angela and Rafael Lopez Adjusting PatientsThe experience of health as something we ‘feel’ can be very misleading. Every disease, disorder, or dysfunction we experience in our bodies occurs as a process of time. Many of these aren’t discovered until late in this process, which correlates to the level of damage or degeneration sustained in the body, and further relates to the length of time for recovery and health, if at all. According to the CDC, in 2006, the three leading causes of death in our country are heart disease, cancer, and stroke. These all occur as a process of time beginning with Dis-ease (lack of ease or normal function), disorder, dysfunction, and eventually the process of disease and pathology.

The body is a self healing and self regulating organism. When given the proper conditions, the potential for health is incredible. Health is also a process of time. The Health process of Correction, Maintenance, Prevention, and Wellness are all achievable with a healthy spine, nervous system, and lifestyle. Consult your Chiropractor regularly as a Health resource to care for your spine and nervous system for optimal health.
