The specific application of forces used to facilitate the body’s correction of nerve interference.
A primary healthcare profession in which professional responsibility and authority are focused on the anatomy of the spine, immediate articulation, and the condition of nerve interference. It is also a practice that encompasses educating and advising about spinal health.
A comprehensive process of evaluation of the spinal column and its immediate articulations to determine the presence of nerve interference and other conditions that may contraindicate chiropractic procedures.
The professional practice objective of chiropractic is to correct nerve interference in a safe, effective manner. The correction is not considered to be a specific cure for any particular symptom or disease. It is applicable to any patient who exhibits signs of nerve interference regardless of the presence or absence of symptoms or disease.
The word disease is a combination of “dis” and “ease.” Dis is a prefix meaning “apart from.” It follows then that dis-ease is nothing more than a lack of comfort, a loss of harmony in the system. Chiropractors believe that instead of treating disease with chemicals and invasive procedures, whenever possible, first treat dis-ease with the reduction or elimination of nerve interference, thereby giving the patient a chance to recover naturally before resorting to drugs and surgery.
100% of the organs and tissues functioning 100% of the time in a state of optimal physical, mental and social wellbeing; not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
The forceful passive movement of a joint beyond its active limit of motion. It doesn’t imply the use of precision, specificity or the correction of nerve interference. Therefore, it is not synonymous with chiropractic adjustment.
Procedures that provide information about disease processes for the selection of treatment.
The nervous system is the control center of the body. The brain and spinal cord are so important that they are the only organs protected by being totally encased in bone (the skull and vertebral column). Billions of nerve fibers supply every cell, tissue, organ and system of the body. Messages or mental impulses are relayed through these fibers from the brain to the body and from the body to the brain. With a few exceptions, nerves travel from the brain down the spinal core. Thirty-one pairs of spinal nerves emerge from the spinal core and exit through holes located between the spinal bones. Each spinal nerve has millions of nerve fibers tightly bundled together, which branch off to supply the systems of the body. The body regulates its functions through these nerves.
Universal Intelligence is in all matter and continually gives to it all its properties and actions, thus maintaining it in existence.
The doctrine that teaches that in living organisms, life is caused and sustained by a vital principle distinct from all physical and chemical forces. It also teaches that life is, at least in part, self-determining and self-evolving.
A misalignment of one or more of the vertebrae in the spinal column, which causes alteration of nerve function and interference to the transmission of mental impulses resulting in a lessening of the body’s Innate ability to express its maximum health potential. Also referred to as nerve interference.
