WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC CARE?
Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the spinal column and the nervous system as well as the role of the spinal column in biomechanics and movement. Chiropractic is an important part of the holistic trend in health care. A holistic approach to health care looks at all of the external and internal influences on the body in the study of health and disease. Holistic therapies, such as chiropractic, are designed to work with the animal’s inborn ability to heal itself, which is called innate intelligence. Innate intelligence not only allows the body to heal itself, but it is also how the body is able to regulate its systems and function properly as a whole. This approach differs from purely allopathic approaches that often treat only symptoms instead of the animal as a whole. The role of the chiropractor is greater than simply treating conditions. Instead, by reducing vertebral subluxation complexes, the innate intelligence of the body can best express itself and thereby heal itself. This will then enable that animal to reach more of his or her full potential in every area of life.
