Chiropractic Questions and Answers
When a patient seeks chiropractic health care and we accept a patient for such care, it is essential for both to be working toward the same objective. It is important that each patient understands both the objective and the method that will be used to attain this objective. This will prevent any confusion or disappointment. You have the right, as the patient, to be informed about the condition of your health and the recommended care and treatment to be provided so that you may make the decision whether or not to undergo chiropractic care after being advised of the known risks, benefits, and alternatives.
Chiropractic is a science and art which concerns itself with the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (primarily the nervous system) as that relationship may effect the restoration and preservation of health. Health is the state of optimal physical, mental, and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
Vertebrae fit together so that mental impulses (nerve supply) produced in your brain may filter down your spinal cord and out over your nerves. These messages are responsible for communicating information throughout your body so that growth, repair, and healing my take place. When vertebrae are out of their natural alignment, the potential for nerve interference is great.
At A Line Chiropractic, we like to say that we are a "vacation from subluxation".
Since all body functions are influenced by the brain sending and receiving messages over nerves, when nerves become stretched or twisted ("pinched nerve"), this vital communication system is disrupted. These neurological disruptions are called subluxations.
Instead of treating the symptoms of disease, the Doctor of Chiropractic corrects the subluxations so that normal body function may be restored.
