Who Should Go To A Chiropractor?
It depends on who you ask. For example, if you asked a person
who was relieved of migraines he’d say, "Anyone with
migraines should see a doctor of chiropractic." A child who no
longer wets his bed will say, "Chiropractic is for bed-wetting."
"Anyone with menstrual problems should go," says a woman who
suffered from menstrual cramps. Someone saved from back or disc
surgery would say chiropractic is for people with spine, back or
There are case histories of people recovering from nearly every
known disease and condition under chiropractic care: heart
trouble, hyperactivity, fatigue, allergy, digestive problems,
colds, flu, infertility and hundreds of other conditions.
You may be surprised to learn that doctors of chiropractic do
not treat migraines or bed-wetting or menstrual cramps or
backaches or the flu or high fevers or any other disease. The
goal of the doctor of chiropractic is to awaken your own natural
healing ability by correcting the vertebral subluxation complex,
one of the deadliest, most destructive blockages of life and
energy you can suffer from.
By correcting the vertebral subluxation complex, your doctor of
chiropractic promotes natural healing, vitality, strength and
That’s why, if you’d go into the waiting room of a
doctor of chiropractic you’d probably see people with many
kinds of health problems yet they are there for one thing only,
to have their vertebral subluxations corrected, not to have their
Having a healthy spinal column makes good common sense. If
you’re sick, you should go to strengthen your natural
healing ability. If you’re feeling fine, you should
remember that vertebral subluxations are painless silent killers.
You and your family should get your spines checked periodically
to make sure you’re living free from hidden vertebral
subluxations so you’re functioning at your fullest. Why

Should I go to a chiropractor if I’m
suffering from a disease?
Absolutely! Chiropractic care will help turn on your
body’s natural healer and improve your self-healing
ability. You’ll be better able to fight whatever disease or
condition you’re suffering from.
Can I go if I’m under medical
Yes. Having your vertebral subluxations corrected is important
no matter what other type of care you’re receiving. You can
have your spinal column checked for vertebral subluxations by a
doctor of chiropractic and still visit a doctor of homeopathy,
naturopathy, osteopathy or medicine. M.D.s and other healers
cannot tell if you’re suffering from vertebral subluxations
and are not trained in correcting them.
What Techniques Do You Use?
Our techniques include:
A more specific method for full spine adjusting utilizing the use of full spine x-rays to locate spinal mis-alignments.
The most common non-specific technique used by most general practice chiropractors. It is a technique which may utilize more than one method but will involve spinal adjustment.
The chiropractor uses an instrument called an Activator to make your adjustment. It is a small hand held impact tool in which a quick snap is applied to correct a vertebral mis-alignment according to a set pattern.
No matter what disease or condition you have, you can benefit
from a healthy spine. Spinal health can be as important for your
overall healing as proper nutrition. Are you and your family
carrying the vertebral subluxation complex in your spines? Only a
chiropractic spinal checkup can tell.
Among the many things contributing to your health: the quality
of the air food and water you take in; how you handle emotional
stress; your inherited weaknesses and strengths; your use of
drugs; exercise; and relaxation —a healthy spine is
absolutely essential. In some people it is a major factor and can
make the difference between a life of health, strength and
vitality or a life of disease, weakness and disability.
Chiropractic is now the largest non-medical healing art in the
world, attracting millions of people each year: housewives and
movie stars, scientists and businessmen, lawyers and laborers,
infants and the elderly, professional athletes and "weekend
warriors" all come seeking the unique services that only a doctor
of chiropractic can provide.
But millions of sick, suffering and dying people, perhaps living
on painkillers and other drugs, or facing surgery, have never
tried chiropractic care even though help maybe literally around
