“I don’t believe in Chiropractic”

While chiropractic is unique and different, it certainly is not something that you have to “believe in”.  Chiropractic, like gravity, works whether you believe in it or not.  Chiropractic produces results because it acknowledges scientifically confirmed facts:

The nervous system controls everything in your body.  Nerve impulses flow from the brain, down the spinal cord where nerves branch off to every organ and tissue.  Impulses sent back to the brain confirm that the body is functioning normally. 

The nervous system is so important, the body put 24 vertebra to protect it. This armor also supports your body but when you experience physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, environmental and chemical stress (all day, most days) these bones can get stuck or mis-align. This interferes with this exchange of communication by irritating the nervous system.  Dysfunction and ill health will result from a compromised nervous system.  Chiropractic care removes the interference and helps restore the integrity of the nervous system thereby promoting health and healing.

     “If you start, do you have to go for the rest of your life?”

You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to. You don't have to brush your teeth, you don't have to eat well, you don't have to bring your car for an oil change. But anything worth having must be maintained. Regular spinal hygiene is not a new thing but as you can see its very important. Health is not a destination, it is a journey that starts with a choice.

This is a convenient claim made by critics who have chosen to overlook convincing proof to the contrary.  Being “all in your head” implies the power of suggestion.  Yet, chiropractic results have been experienced by newborns, infants, pets and others for whom the power of suggestion isn’t possible!  The power of suggestion can’t begin to explain the millions of patients who have been helped with chiropractic care. In fact, chiropractic has survived for the past 120 years and is the largest form on natural health care in the world. It has survived and thrived against much opposition simply because chiropractic always works. History does not lie and if you look up the facts you will see this. 

In 1918 the flu pandemic swept across the US killing thousands. During this time, more people were seeking chiropractic as a way to fight off the flu. Statistics reflect a most amazing, almost miraculous state of affairs. The medical profession was practically helpless wit the flu victims but chiropractors seemed able to do no wrong. National figures show that 1,142 chiropractors treated 46,394 patients for influenza during 1918, with a loss of 54 patients - one out of every 886! In New York City, during the same period, for every 10,000 cases medically treated, 950 died; and in every 10,000 pneumonia cases medically treated 6,400 died.

These figures are exact and a historical fact. 

  My medical doctor told me “Don’t let the chiropractor adjust your neck because it will cause a stroke.”

            Those in the medical profession who make this statement either have unknowingly been misinformed or they choose to spread misleading and inaccurate information.  When anyone makes a negative comment they need to back it up with fact (research), if not, it is all hearsay. 

The research produced to date has the occurrence of stroke with neck adjusting at 1 in 5,850,000 million adjustments.  The published statistics for women taking a birth control pill is that 1 in 25,000 will die from the pill.  If you are afraid of having your neck adjusted, you must be much more scared of the birth control pill. 4,000 children died last year from taking Tylenol. Last year, 40,000 people in Canada and 440,000 people in the US died from receiving medical intervention and those numbers continue to rise. Medical mistakes and errors is now the 3rd leading cause of death in North America.

            According to data obtained from the National Center for Health Statistics in the United States, it shows the mortality rate from stroke in the chiropractic patient population is less than half than that of the general population. Therefore, we could conclude that by having chiropractic care, your chances of having a stroke are actually reduced by 50%.

Facts and results have always proved that chiropractic is not only safe, it works! So what are you waiting for?
