  • All too often we as a society have been taught that health means feeling good. Chiropractors locate, analyze and gently correct vertebral subluxations by using a broad range of adjusting techniques. By restoring proper nerve flow, the chiropractor helps people enjoy more of their full potential for health and optimal performance. Chiropractic involves the study of philosophy, science and art. Philosophy considers the fundamental nature of existence, of human beings and of their interaction with the environment. The sciences deal with human biology - especially the relationship between the spinal segments and the nerve system, and the effect this relationship has on the body's innate striving to express and maintain its own health. Chiropractic's art is the expression of its philosophy and is concerned with locating and correcting vertebral subluxations. Ultimately, chiropractic is concerned with improving the body's expression of life and health. Straight chiropractic education involves the study of philosophy, science and art. • Philosophy considers the fundamental nature of existence of human beings and of their interaction with the environment. Chiropractic recognizes that the body possesses a unique internal wisdom that continually strives to maintain a state of health. This wisdom is innate, inherent. The innate intelligence works to maintain homeostasis as it coordinates bodily functions to continuously adapt to ever-changing internal and external environments and maintain a state of wellness. • Chiropractic science deals with human biology – especially the relationship between the spinal segments and the nerve system, and the effect this relationship has on the body’s innate striving to express and maintain its own health. This relationship between structure and function is the applied science of chiropractic, which focuses on the inherent ability of the body to heal without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractic’s concern is with vertebral subluxation and its influence on health and health maintenance. Its aim is to ensure that the nerve system is functioning without interference from subluxation. • Chiropractic art is the expression of its philosophy and is concerned with locating and correcting vertebral subluxations. Central to chiropractic is the vertebral subluxation, a condition in which a vertebra becomes slightly misaligned and disturbs nerve function. The practice objective of chiropractic is to locate, analyze and correct vertebral subluxations. To fulfill the role of a primary health care provider, the clinical training includes taking a case history, physical examination, spinal examination, x-ray studies, the interpretation of specialized imaging studies, diagnosis, patient report of findings, determining a plan of care and the safe application of adjustive technique. Ultimately, chiropractic is concerned with improving the expression of life and health while the doctor of chiropractic functions as a member of a patient’s health care team through referral and co management.

    “ The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.” ~Thomas Edison www.sherman.edu
