What is Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic, both ancient and scientific.

Chiropractic is a natural healing method known throughout the world. The word chiropractic is derived from the Greek word "cheiros": hand and "pratto": to practice. It therefore means: 'to practice by hand'.

 

Chiropractic and medical science

Chiropractic is a medical science, based on traditional medical knowledge. However, chiropractic is distinguished from traditional medical science by the way the knowledge is applied.

The chiropractor achieves healing by influencing the nervous system. People do not become ill the moment the symptoms present themselves. The symptoms have a cause. In chiropractic, we locate and treat precisely this cause. As a result, the symptoms also reduce or disappear over time.

Your spine and nervous system are inextricably linked. And to function optimally, your body is completely dependent on these two. When your spine is not in top shape, your nervous system cannot function properly. This can have a variety of consequences for your health.

 

Pain and functioning

Most people only come to the chiropractor when they feel pain. Often there is already damage by then. Only ten percent of our nervous system consists of 'pain nerves'. When you feel pain, this means that the organ in question is only functioning at thirty-five percent. Anyone who wants to be one hundred percent healthy will benefit from regular preventive checkups by the chiropractor.

Also indirect complaints such as headaches, poor vision, ear infections, allergies, asthma and even apparent fertility problems can indicate a malfunctioning nervous system.
