The Science and Practice of Chiropractic

The Science of chiropractic deals with relationship between the articulations of the skeleton and nervous system and the role of this relationship in the restoration and maintenance of health. Of primary concern to chiropractic are abnormalities of structure or function of the vertebral column known clinically as the vertebral subluxation complex. The subluxation complex includes any alteration of the biochemical and physiological dynamics contiguous spinal structures which can cause neurological disturbances.

Chiropractic holds that the body is a self healing organism and that major determining factor ini the development of states of disease or dysfunction is the body's inability to comprehend its environment either internally and/or externally. Directly or indirectly, all bodily function is controlled by the nervous system, consequently a central theme of chiropractic theories on health is the premise that abnormal bodily function may be cause by interference with nerve transmission and expression due to pressure, strain or tension upon the spinal cord, spinal nerves, or peripheral nerves as a result of a displacement of spinal segments or other sketetal structures (subluxation).

The art of chiropractic pertains to the skill and judgment required for the detection, location, analysis, control, reduction and correction of primarily the vertebral subluxation complex. It also involves the determination of any contraindications to the provision of chiropractic care to any particular method of adjusting. The ICA holds that the chiropractic spinal adjustment is unique and singular to the chiropractic profession due to its specificity of application and rationale for application.

The doctor of chiropractic is an independent professional at the doctoral level and, as such, is well-educated in the basic, anatomical, clinical and chiropractic sciences and other health-related areas. This broad range of education is taught within the context of the philosophy of science, principles, and ethics of chiropractic. The doctor of chiropractic is trained in physical, clinical, laboratory, analytical, and diagnostic procedures. As well as in monitoring of body functions thus enabling him or her to responsibly and effectively care for his or her patient in health and disease, to engage in timely consultation with other health care professionals, and to refer and accept referrals when in the patient‘s best interest.

The practice of chiropractic consists of the analysis of interference with normal nerve transmission and expression produced by abnormalities of one or more vertebral motor units or other skeletal structures and the correction there of by adjustment of these structures for the restoration and maintenance of health, without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractic is well established in more than 100 nations worldwide and has been officially incorporated into the public health systems of most nations.

Chiropractic care utilizes the inherent recuperative powers of the body for the restoration and maintenance of health through the normalization of the relationship between the recognizes that essentially only the body heals and therefore, holds forth no cure for disease.

The clinical application of chiropractic includes the adjustment of the spinal vertebrae and other skeletal articulations, the use of analytical and diagnostic x-ray of the skeletal system and of its adjacent tissues; those procedures necessary to interpret disorders of the neuromuscular skeletal system and those conditions related thereto; and the use of physical, clinical, and laboratory diagnostic procedures to ascertain the nature of the patient’s problem and respond appropriately so as to secure the optimal care of the patient. Inherent to this concept is obligation to consult with or refer to other healthcare providers before, during or after the rendering of chiropractic care, if in his/her professional opinion, it is appropriate and in the best interest of the patient.

The doctor of Chiropractic may use all appropriate ancillary and rehabilitative procedures appropriate to the area of dysfunction in support of chiropractic adjustment, wellness and lifestyle counseling, nutritional advice for the overall enhancement of the health of the patient. In recent years doctor of chiropractic have become a leading resource in promotion of prevention and wellness, including healthy sleep, and an example to other professions in the application of those vitalistic dimensions of healthcare.
