Chiropractic Medicine is the largest natural primary health care profession in the world. It's one of the most praised, yet misunderstood of all the health care disciplines, despite the fact that more than 50 million Americans utilize it each year. There are some 60 thousand chiropractors around the world. The purpose of chiropractic is to correct misalignments in the spine, which are called vertebral subluxations. The only reason that chiropractors work on the spine is because of what lies within the spine; the nervous system. The nervous system is made up of the brain and spinal cord, and runs through the spine and out little holes on either side of the spine.
Chiropractic - The Drug-free Choice
Chiropractic care is a drug-free alternative that has worked for millions of headache sufferers. Medications treat the symptoms; Chiropractic treats the cause of your headaches. Adjustments and self-help care can often make the difference. Remember, "headaches are not caused by a dietary insufficiency of aspirin or other pain medications." Every day that you are in pain is one day too long. If you suffer from headaches, don't delay in setting up a chiropractic examination. Once the source of your headache is identified, chiropractic care can help to correct the underlying cause of your pain.
