Chiropractors don’t put any drugs or chemicals into the body, and they don’t remove body parts-and yet for well over a century millions of people have benefited from chiropractic care.
We’re not just referring to musculoskeletal pain such as the back, wrist, arm, shoulder, neck, head, leg, hip, and other pains but much, much more.
Chiropractic has become the largest drug-free healing science, art, and philosophy in the world because of its successes. At a time when organized medicine attacked chiropractic care, the numbers of people visiting chiropractors exploded. Why? Because it works! Chiropractic is drug-free (no side effects or drug reactions), safe (chiropractors’ malpractice premiums are a small fraction of those of a medical doctor, especially orthopedists) and effective-as millions of people around the world will testify.
If you’d spend a day sitting in the waiting room of a chiropractor’s office, you’d be impressed with the many different people coming in for care. First of all, consider the ages- from newborns to the elderly, pregnant patients, and those who are literally carried in and walk out.
Second, you’d hear stories such as: “my child doesn’t have any more ear infections,” “he’s not as clumsy and has more self-confidence,” “her asthma seemed to disappear,” “his ability to concentrate has improved,” “his grades are better,’ “his allergies have stopped,” and many, many more.
Athletes especially benefit from regular chiropractic care – students, weekend, amateur, and professional athletes.
The role of the chiropractor is to make sure there are no distortions, blockages, subluxations, and other forms of nerve interference in your spine.
