CHIROPRACTIC is an Art, a Philosophy, and a Science.
The art that I apply is adjusting patients with Chiropractic approved instruments to restore the body to normal function over time. I use the Activator Adjusting Method that leads me to locating the joint fixations and dysfunctions of the vertebra that need adjusting. I then apply the IQ Adjusting Instrument to the located vertebra, joint, or muscle and proceed to correct the misalignment. This procedure that I use is appreciated by my patients as I find what their problems are and correct them.
The philosophy can be well said by Thomas Edison, " The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease." To choose a natural approach is chiropractic. By doing so, you can overcome the need for unnecessary surgery and dangerous drugs. A quote from B.J. Palmer D.C., developer of chiropractic said: " It is useless to administer a powder, potion, or pill to the stomach when the body needs an adjustment." He also said, "Medical men have searched the world for remedies, desiring an antidote. Chiropractors find the cause in the person ailing."
The science of the human body is studied by chiropractors for 5 years. Our education consists of subjects of anatomy, physiology, pathology, neurology, biomechanics, X-ray, spinal adjusting techniques and more related subjects. These five years of study prepares chiropractic doctors to locate and help correct nervous system dysfunction that can cause the diseases and poor health of society today. Research is ongoing in the chiropractic world and updates to chiropractic education skills are continuous. All chiropractors in Australia have to complete 25 hours of post-graduate training to keep them updated with their skills in their chosen techniques that they use.
