Welcome to the Ward Chiropractic Office. In the following paragraphs we would like to try to answer some of the more common questions about chiropractic and explain some of the policies and procedures of this facility.
The first thing that needs to be understood is that chiropractic is a natural form of the healing arts which depends on the body's natural ability to heal itself and maintain its own health There are no drugs in this office and no shots. The principle at work here is that all of the actions of the body are operated and co-ordinated by the central nervous system. our mutual concern, then, is the condition of the central nervous system in general, and more specifically, how it is affected by its principal means of support the spine.
Sometimes, when a person has a headache, an aspirin tablet may be taken through the mouth and enter the stomach. Although the problem is in neither of these last two places, they serve as avenues of approach" for the reduction of the headache symptoms. Similarly, the spine is the chiropractors "avenue of approach". Much as the aspirin needs to pass through the stomach to reach the head, the chiropractor needs to use the spine to reach the nerve system. There are twenty-four moveable segments of the spine and if anyone of them moves enough to irritate the spinal cord or delicate nerve roots that pass between them, the result is malfunction of those nerves; which, in turn, affects the functions of the body.
The object of chiropractic care is to locate and to correct as completely as possible these misaligninents, called subluxations, to reduce the pressure on the nerves and to restore normal function to the body.
