What is Chiropractic?

I would like you to understand that our office is all about the health of your children and your family! It is not about giving you more drugs to make you feel temporarily better. No. It is about getting to the crux of why you have a problem in the first place! Now we’re getting somewhere!

I say this because I have found out in my years of practice that most people don’t truly understand what health really is. So here it is:

Your health is based on four very important principles:

1. Your body is a self-healing organism. 

It is designed to heal itself!  Did you know that?  For example, you get a brand new liver every month.  All the cells in your liver die and are replaced with brand new cells every 28 days!  Amazing!

Every four months all of your red blood cells are wiped out and your body creates a completely new set.  Incredible!

You get a completely new stomach lining every 5 days.

Your taste buds are replaced every 11 days.

Here is my favorite: At night when you go home and take off your clothes before bed, thousands of dead skin cells float down to the floor and then you vacuum yourself up the next morning!  Did you realize that most of the dust in your house is YOU?  You are a very dusty person!

Your body is in a constant state of change and repair! And in order to do this it follows a very exact program.  So my job is to find out why you are not following the program!  Why your body is not doing what it is designed and programmed to do.  And that is absolutely not OK!

2. Your nervous system is the thing that runs this program. 

It is like a computer central command center that runs you.  As long as your nervous system is able to communicate effectively with every organ, tissue, cell, every little nook and cranny of you, you should have the very best health that you have ever had in your life.  This is called normal.

3. If something interferes with the function of you nervous system and it is not able to do this, your body will not be able to do what it is designed and programmed to do. 

It will do its own thing…and this is what you are experiencing – your body is talking to you!

4. My job as a Chiropractor is to restore law and order! 

I’m the new Sheriff in town!
