Chiropractic in a Nutshell

BY William D.Esteb
  1. The body is a self-healing, self-regulating organism.
  2. This control and regulation is directed by the nervous system.
  3. Compromise to the nervous system interferes with the ability of the body to adapt to its internal and external environments.
  4. These compromises result from chemical, mental and physical stressors.
  5.  When these stressors manifest in spinal dysfunction, affecting nearby nerve tissue, it is called a subluxation.
  6. When the spine is subluxated, the body is not at ease, setting the stage for disease.
  7. Because the nervous system controls everything, subluxation produces whole body effects, both local and peripheral to the spine.
  8. Locating and reducing subluxation is the primary focus of chiropractic care.
  9. The essential chiropractic intervention is called an adjustment.
  10. An adjustment in its many applications and techniques is delivered with the intent of adding energy which the body can use to "right itself"
  11. It is the body that knows what to do or not do with the force delivered by the adjustment.
  12. Healing is a process dependent upon many factors, mostly outside the control of the chiropractor.
Since our life experiences are based on the proper functioning of the nervous system it makes sense to incorporate a chiropractic evaluation into achieving true health and vitality. An underperforming nervous system may negate doing exercises, improving your nutrition and acting on other countless wellness strategies.
