ADVERTISING: Advertorial — DR. WAYNE M. FICHTER: Prevention: The key to lifelong health

Print Article

Millions of patients have been satisfied with chiropractic since 1895. We know that a chiropractic adjustment is good for pain, but what about overall wellness and improved health.

The body is made up of 11 organ systems, and the nervous system is the only system in the body that directly affects every other organ system. This is because sensory information is collected from all parts of the body via nerves and sent to the brain. Once the messages are sent to the brain, it analyzes the information to determine what the body needs to maintain a healthy state. In essence, the nervous system is important to the quality health of the rest of the body.

Chiropractors realize that any misalignments in the spine can interfere with proper nervous function. Misalignments or subluxations in the spine are abnormal patterns in the spine. When vertebral subluxations occur, imbalances in the spine are the result, causing irritation and inflammation at the particular level. As a result, this can cause interference with information that is transmitted along nerves roots. Chiropractors are the only health care professionals specifically trained to locate and correct spinal subluxations.

For years, scientific research has been focused on the use of chiropractic care for low back pain, neck pain and headaches. In fact, there is so much research that shows that chiropractors are now recommended as the go-to professionals for spinal pain syndromes. With a wellness focus on the rise, many individuals are focused on non-traditional approaches to health. The Center for Disease Control reported that the four most popular forms of alternative and complementary medicine were listed as natural products, deep breathing, meditation and chiropractic.

The chiropractic core philosophy is about removing interference to the nerve system, so, to optimize the brain- body communication network, chiropractic can be viewed as a therapy with an emphasis on whole body health and wellness. An analysis of the use of complementary health approaches for back pain, based on data from the 2002 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), found that chiropractic was by far the most commonly used therapy. Investigators found that “chiropractic adjustments, often for the purpose of correcting vertebral subluxation, confer measurable health benefits to people regardless of the presence or absence of symptoms.” More people are seeking what chiropractic has to offer: optimization of health and an improved quality of life. Chiropractic care should be considered an invaluable tool for you to not only help you feel well, but to also help you be well.
