A “Chiropractic Adjustment” vs. “Chiropractic Care”
I see so many people comparing apples to oranges when it comes to Chiropractic. Some people will visit our office once or twice and believe this effort to be Chiropractic. Some even forget our names over time. If you investigate further, you find out they only visited until their pain was gone.
A Chiropractic Adjustment is a specific force applied to the spine to facilitate(assist) the correction of a subluxation. Under this paradigm, you walk in with pain and want an adjustment to magically remove that entity that has been there for months to even years. You received a few Chiropractic Adjustments and you’re happy! You may have even been able to dictate to your chiropractor where and how to adjust you.
With Chiropractic Care on the other hand, you are part of an ongoing effort along with your chiropractor to maintain your nerve system clear of subluxations(interferences of nerve transmission to and from the brain to the body) for the rest of your life. On your part, you visit often, not because of any problem, but to constantly keep your nerve system clear of interference just because you know its better for you under ANY circumstance. As your Chiropractor, we will examine your spine locating any subluxations then gently introduce a calculated force(or forces) into the specific vertebra(s) involved to assist the body in its correction of these blockages. Over time and with consistency, your body will be better able to maintain its balance and keep you free of subluxations.
Which do you want? A Chiropractic Adjustment or Chiropractic Care?
