When do you need a Chiropractor?
The purpose of the Chiropractic approach to health care (the wellness model) is to uncover the cause of your health condition, 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 Americans are unaware that today's Doctors of Chiropractic undergo an intense educational process that is similar to medical doctors over the first two years of schooling. 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 on nutrition and natural alternatives to drugs.
The second two years of education for chiropractic students focuses on learning the tools of their "trade"; manual and physical methods of treatment. This is learned through chiropractic manipulative therapy (CMT or "adjusting"), physiotherapy devices (such as electrical muscle stimulation and therapeutic ultrasound) and rehabilitative techniques.

What is Chiropractic Care?
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.
Chiropractic health care 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) will effect how the nervous systemrelates 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.
