Can Chiropractic Care Help My XYZ?

Chiropractors have long held that interference to the nerve system (your body's master controller) affects every aspect of one's life.  There is compelling evidence that such interference (vertebral subluxation) could result in the signs and symptoms of many types of visceral disease.  For example, medical author Kunert states, "...lesions of the spinal column..are perfectly capable of simulating, accentuating or making a major contribution to organic diseases.  There no doubt that the state of the spinal column does have a bearing on the functional status of the internal organs."1

As dramatic a statement as that is, it is critical to understand that chiropractic is not a treatment for any disease.  A 1979 Royal Commission of Inquiry into Chiropractic by the government of New Zealand stated, "The chiropractor does not set out to cure or relieve a particular ailment.  What he sets out to do is to ensure that the spinal column is functioning normally.  If a particular ailment clears up or is relieved following therapy, so much the better.  If it does not, then at least the patient, now with no spinal impediment to the working of his nervous system, ought to be in a generally better condition and better able to cope with the ailment."2

"Chiropractic is a profession whose aim is the improvement of the function of the nervous system by improving the structure of the 'living conduit' in which part of that nervous system is housed"2
