Chiropractic does not treat any disease. Chiropractic removes interference
from the nervous system which allows optimal health to manifest naturally.
Chiropractic is a healthcare profession specialising in the mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system & the effect on the nervous system and general health. A subluxation is a state of altered spinal mechanics causing nerve interference which can negatively effect general health by altering the neurological communication between the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system. Chiropractic treatment of subluxations focuses on delivering a chiropractic adjustment to the dysfunctional spinal segments to help correct the function of the spine. Spinal manipulation is the primary procedure used by Chiropractors and has scientifically been shown to help with low back pain, neck pain and tension type headaches. Chiropractors rely upon non-invasive treatment methods & will refer to a medical practitioner when indicated.
The Triad of Health
A person's health can be described by the balance of three major health categories - chemical factors, mental factors and structural factors. This is called the Triad of Health. The Triad is represented by an equilateral triangle with structural factors as its base, and chemical factors and mental factors as the upright sides. When a person experiences poor health, it is due to an imbalance in one or more of these three factors. The Triad of Health is interactive: All sides must be evaluated for the underlying cause of a problem. A health problem on one side of the triad can affect the other sides. For example, stress (mental) can cause muscle tightness (structural) and ulcers (chemical).
