All kinds of conditions are treated with chiropractic care, such as colds or ear infections, PMS, spinal or disc problems, arthritis, insomnia, stress, vision problems, headaches, allergies, bedwetting, colic, high blood pressure-the list is long! And yet, please remember, the goal of chiropractic treatment is no the treatment of disease but rather the enhancement of health through the reduction of spinal nerve stress (vertebral subluxation complex).
The above list may seem long as though chiropractic were a Panacea. The truth is that most textbooks list over two hundred diseases. Please be mindful of the fact that chiropractic care is not like one drug used for one condition, but on the contrary, it is a complete healing art within itself, concerned with the systems of the body such as nervous, circulatory, digestive, respiratory, eliminatory, reproductive, hormonal, musculoskeletal, etc., and seeks to correct health problems within those systems.
You can receive chiropractic treatments even if under medical care. Having your spinal nerve stress corrected is important no matter what other type of care you’re receiving. You can have your spinal column checked for vertebral subluxations by a doctor of chiropractic and still visit a doctor of homeopathy, naturopathy, osteopathy, or medicine. MDs and other healers cannot tell if you’re suffering from spinal nerve stress (vertebral subluxations) and are not trained in correcting it.
In Chiropractic there are other significant factors besides vertebral adjusting, including five laws to obey for those who desire health and longevity: 1) Proper nutrition; 2) Adequate rest; 3) Moderate exercise; 4) A positive mental attitude; 5) Proper nerve supply.
No matter what disease or condition you have, you can benefit from a healthy spine. Spinal health can be as important for your overall healing as proper nutrition. Are you and your family carrying the silent killer, the vertebral subluxation complex, in your spines? Only a chiropractic spinal checkup can tell.
Among the many things contributing to your health – the quality of the air, food and water you take in; how you handle emotional stress; your inherited weakness and strengths; your use of drugs; exercise; and relaxation – a healthy spine is absolutely essential. In some people it is a major factor and can make the difference between a life of health, strength and vitality or a life of disease, weakness and disability.
