Chiropractic Has Nothing To Do With Back Pain
Chiropractic has nothing to do with back pain, it has everything to do with health!
The reason why chiropractic has become so successful in the back-pain world, is that most patients come into an office with back pain because they have not had results with medical care. Medical care looks at the symptom so a patient walks in telling a doctor what their symptom is, thinking that once that symptom goes away they don’t have a problem. And it’s easy for a doctor to give a patient what they want versus what they need. What a patient truly needs is to be healthy. When someone has a back problem, they have a health problem: their nervous system is not functioning correctly.
Your immune system works to keep you 100% natural, organic, unadulterated. It recognizes and destroys bacteria, viruses, pollutants, pollen, drugs, tumors, debris and certain artificial substances. Many things influence how well your immune system functions: your nervous system, endocrine system, diet, genes, and emotions. The most common immune system disorder is the allergy that occurs when the immune system overreacts to an allergen (dust, pollen, milk, dog or cat dander, strawberries, etc.), and the body produces too many neutralizing chemicals (especially histamines) in response.
Orthodox medicine has no cure for allergies, only treatment of symptoms. Antihistamines are often prescribed and these can cause heart problems (among other harmful side effects like nausea, vomiting, and blurred vision) and should not be used with alcohol, sedatives or tranquilizers.
The spinal column has two purposes: it supports the body and, of course
The spinal column has two purposes: it supports the body and, of course, it has the spinal cord and spinal nerves inside it, which branch out from the brain and the brain stem. When chiropractors do an evaluation, they are evaluating how well the nervous system is working through the structure of the spinal column. The care that is delivered is to correct the structure of the spine which, in turn, allows the body to create health.
Health comes from the body. It does not come from outside the body. The nervous system houses the power that controls the innate ability for the body to heal. This is the main principle upon which chiropractic is founded.
Chiropractors work with the innate ability that the body has to heal itself. The principle is known as the above-down-inside-out principle. Above being the brain, which travels down to the spinal cord, through the spinal nerves, and connects to the entire body including all of the organs, muscles, and every living tissue and cell controlled by the nervous system. The heart cannot beat, the lungs cannot breathe, even cuts would not heal if the communications were not working properly. It is for this very reason that countless patients have great success with conditions that are not known as muscular-skeletal conditions. The chiropractor never professes to treat and/or diagnose these things.
It is the body that is doing the healing.

My biggest inspiration and the reason I believe in Chiropractic and the philosophy of helping the body to heal itself continues to be my late mother, Lila Fishel. She passed away from breast cancer in October of 2002. I watched the greatest medical minds in the world be defeated by cancer; it changed my world. Since then I have made a commitment to educate the world about the holistic approach to health and well-being – Chiropractic Medicine.
