We all start out with the potential to be healthy. Why do we sometimes get sick, experience pain, or have other health problems? Often the answers can be found in our lifestyle choices. I am a Doctor of Chiropractic, delivering no drugs, no surgery, believing in the body’s ability to heal itself when negative interferences are removed. Over the course of my career I’ve been asked some interesting questions. One question asked is:
Q: I’ve been hearing a lot about chiropractors lately, both good and bad. I know they treat back pain and soft tissue injuries from car accidents, and sports injuries like sprained ankles, but what exactly is chiropractic and how does it work?
A: With approximately 65,000 Doctors of Chiropractic in the United States, 6,000 in Canada, and more than 10,000 internationally, chiropractic is recognized as the fastest-growing and second-largest primary health care profession in the world. Yet despite its rising popularity, many people remain confused about what exactly chiropractic is and how it works.
