Fundamental Concepts of Chiropractic Care
"Chiropractic is a philosophy, science, and art of all things natural as it pertains to Healing and Nerve Function!!"
Everything that happens in our body, from heart rate to the immune system, is dependent on how well our nerve system is functioning. The nerve system, comprised of the brain, brainstem, spinal cord, and nerves is collectively coined the master control network in the body. It is directly responsible for how well our bodies function, adapt to their environment, and heal. Our Bonita Springs FL and Fort Myers FL chiropractors know that this makes the nerve system or master control network the foundational component to achieving true health. In other words:
- Power that made body heals body. We were all born with an innate or inborn intelligence that is responsible for regulating ALL bodily function.
- This inborn or innate intelligence is expressed through the nerve system (Brain, Brainstem, Spinal Cord, & Nerves), and as long as it is expressed at 100% we maintain the ability to function properly, heal and adapt.
- Sometimes the expression of our innate intelligence can be interfered with by something called a Vertebral Subluxation.
- Our job at Breakthrough Health Center is to locate and remove these subluxations naturally, without the use of potentially harmful drugs or surgery, thereby restoring the expression of your innate intelligence, which in turn allows you to heal and function at 100%.
Goal of Chiropractic
According to The Association of Chiropractic Colleges, "Chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs and surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (namely the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health."
Therefore the only goal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic is to locate and remove interference from the nerve system, allowing a complete expression of the innate wisdom located within. This then allows the body to maintain and/or return to a state of health.
