Hello and welcome to my first blog post.
I thought I would start with some Chiropractic philosophy, I know you are thinking what has philosophy got to do with Chiropractic?, what has philosophy got to do with anything. It is actually the basis of everything we do, a thief has a philosophy, which may be he considers that other people have things he desires, so it is good for him to take those things, that is different to my philosophy and I am sure different to yours, on matters of stealing, philosophy can be that basic.
My Chiropractic philosophy begins with the tenant that the body is a self healing and self regulating organism, nobody disagrees with this, it is self evident, if you cut yourself you heal, if you run fast your heart beats faster automatically. My second tenant is that the nervous system is the master controller of the body, everything that happens in your body is controlled by your nervous system, even your hormones are controlled by your nervous system. Thirdly, a major cause of nervous system interference is misalignment of spinal vertebra.
Chiropractors correct spinal misalignment, removing interference to the nervous system, allowing your body to self heal and self regulate the basis of real health.
