How Chiropractic Care Works

What Does Chiropractic Do

Dr Greg Frost, Carlsbad CA chiropractor on how chiropractic care worksThe nervous system is the foundation for all of the body’s functions. Chiropractic manipulates a subluxated or “stuck” vertebra back into its natural state, therefore relieving harmful stress which allows for a free flowing nerve signal. If left untreated, the chronic pressure placed upon the vertebra will turn into dis-ease. Chiropractic is a natural approach to attaining wellness by giving the body the assistance and tools it needs to heal on its own. It does not require the aid of drugs or surgery, which typically only focus on masking the symptoms. Chiropractic fixes the root of the problem by treating the condition as a whole.

How does it work

A basic philosophy of chiropractic is that the body naturally seeks the proper balance among all the systems of the body, and that these systems are meant to work together. A second basic principle is that proper structure is necessary for proper function. If a structure is impaired by injury or stress, its function can be adversely affected.

Chiropractic interacts with the body’s joints, muscles, and nervous system that make up the body’s structure. The nervous system is the foundation for all of the body’s functions. Chiropractic manipulates a subluxated or “stuck” vertebra back to its natural state, therefore relieving harmful stress which allows for a free flowing nerve signal. Chiropractic fixes the root of the problem by treating the condition as a whole.

As stated from the Palmer College of Chiropractic the philosophy of chiropractic is “the principle that life is intelligent. This innate intelligence strives to maintain a state of health through adaptation mechanisms. The nervous system is recognized as an avenue for these self-regulating processes. Interference with neurological function can impede these mechanisms, disrupt homeostatic balance and adversely impact health. Chiropractic posits that subluxation of the spinal column and other articulations can affect nervous system function and the expression of health, which may result in symptoms, infirmity and disease.”
