When chiropractors examine a person’s spine, they are checking for abnormal position of spinal bones. Chiropractors are the only doctors that check for this type of abnormal bone placement, and they are the only doctors that are knowledgeable in the proper way to re-position the bones back into a normal, healthy position.
The longer a bone is in abnormal position, the more problems develop. If bones are left in abnormal position long enough, the nerve, then the organ and then the spinal bone decay.
The practice of chiropractic is about trying to get a person as healthy as possible. Our objective is to have people improve the quality of their lives.
All people regardless of age or infirmity should have their spines examined.
Newborns should be checked within one week of delivery or sooner if health problems are evident. The longer people wait to have their spines examined, the more damage can occur. The condition of the spine and nerves determines the amount of care needed. The average person should experience noticeable results within 12 visits, younger people often sooner. Most people benefit from regular adjustments by being able to resist disease better, they feel great, they are happier and they live life to its fullest.
The proper term for a bone out of place is Subluxation. The proper term for repositioning of the bone is an adjustment.
If you want better health, get your spine examined for subluxation and adjusted if necessary.
