The results of chiropractic care are different for every person as each individual is unique. Many people find they have more energy, sleep better, have greater concentration and focus, are more productive, and have a greater ability to resist disease. We often see this improvement in children with chronic or recurrent ear infections. Other people find that their asthma, headaches, back or neck pain, shoulder, arm or leg symptoms significantly diminish or disappear entirely. Click here for references
Remember, regardless of the type of doctor or procedure, ultimately it is the body that does the healing. Chiropractic care is a fantastic way to optimise your body’s natural ability to adapt and heal.
The adjustment is not a specific treatment for any symptom or disease but rather improves nervous system function by restoring better motion and/or alignment to the spinal joints. Whether or not this causes a disease to subside or not is an illogical measure of the value of chiropractic. Normal spinal motion is a requirement for normal brain and nervous system function, so improving spinal function has a positive effect on the human being as a whole. Similarly, eating a good diet is beneficial whether or not you have cancer. Whether or not cancer is cured by eating a good diet is an irrelevant measure of its value. The same can be said about normal function of the spinal joints, their related tissues and the neurological pathways that are positively affected by the chiropractic adjustment. A fully functioning spine and nerve system inevitably gives a better chance of health regardless of any symptoms or disease that may be present.
Chiropractic care is not a substitute for medical care, any more than medical or other form of care, is a substitute for chiropractic care. Chiropractic is not a form, or branch of medicine. Medical doctors specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Chiropractic doctors specialise in the detection and correction of subluxations to enhance the expression of life, health, and proper function of an individual.
