Chiropractic as a Form of Alternative Medicine

Why is Chiropractic Referred to as Alternative Medicine?

When we think of the term alternative medicine, many people will admit to thinking more of Chinese medicine, or acupuncture than any other form of alternative treatment. And while these are both infact alternative forms of medicine, often Chiropractic is overlooked as nothing more than a temporary, injury or back pain treatment.

Chiropractic is much more than the proverbial snap and crack of the back. Chiropractic seeks to work with the body’s own healing ability to bring the musculoskeletal system into alignment allowing the nerve signals that are the life source of the body, to flow uninterrupted.

It is one of the most widely recognized, drug-free, non-invasive  therapies for treatment of not only injuries and back pain but all types of neurological and musculoskeletal malfunctions.

It is true that the chiropractic adjustment sits at the central role of the chiropractic practice, however much analysis is first undertaken before the Practitioner makes the decision to adjust a patient. Chiropractic practitioners are driven by the belief that the body will dictate what it needs.

Other Forms of treatment that Chiropractors Employ:

Chiropractic is unique in its approach to healing the body because it begins with the heavy emphasis on the body’s healing ability. Chiropractors approach illness, disease and body malfunction with the assumption that the body has an innate intelligence, and the job of the health care practitioner is first, prevention as a form of maintaining and sustaining health. Then, when treatment becomes necessary, the first route of healing is sought by first allowing the body its most effective ways to heal itself by bringing the spine into alignment.

Dr. Terry himself explains the role of Chiropractic Biophysics in his treatment plan,  “The Main purpose of your spine is to house and protect your spinal cord and brain stem. As we all know, the spinal cord and brain stem deliver the life-giving electrical impulses generated rom your brain to every cell tissue in your body. ”

If this life giving impulse is interrupted it would seem reasonable to assume that many of our normal bodily functions cannot be performed as they should. Caring for your spine, and your musculoskeletal system is of high priority in this form of alternative medicine.

Dr. Terry Focuses on Sustaining  your life giving impulses with regular Chiropractic Maintenance!

Real Reviews from Real Patients

I reached a breaking point earlier last year when I experienced a migraine for about three months. Since I have been coming to see Dr. Terry I have been migraine free for four months. Not one migraine – it’s magic.

After one month of coming in for tractions and adjustments my headaches went away– and now after several months of traction with the spine, the curvature in my neck is back in a normal range.
