One of the things I love best about chiropractic is the philosophy we embrace that our role as practitioners is to simply support the body as it heals itself.
Think of it—if you cut your finger, you apply antibiotic ointment, you cover it with a bandage, you may even receive a stitch or two—but all of these things merely SUPPORT the healing that your body does all on its own. All of the antibiotic ointment, bandages, and even stitches will never cause a piece of raw meat that has been cut to fuse back together. Healing occurs because of the LIFE FORCE that is within us, and healing is promoted when our actions are in harmony with that innate power within.
Chiropractic care supports the body’s nervous system by aligning the skeletal structure so nerve impulses can travel freely. Correct skeletal alignment also has a beneficial effect on the body’s muscular system. As the nervous, skeletal, and muscular systems of the body work together in greater balance and harmony, not only are pain, discomfort, and injury minimized, but general overall health is increased.
