What Is Chiropractic


What is Chiropractic?What_Is_Chiro.jpg

Chiropractic is a trinity comprised of a philosophy, science and art based on the principles of tone.

" Tone: is the standard from which we note the variations of structure, temperature, tonicity, elasticity, renitency (resistance), and tension; it is the standard of health; any deviation therefrom is disease. Tone is the BASIC PRINCIPLE, the one from which all other principles, which compose the science, have sprung."
-- pg. 8, The Chiropractor, 1914

" Tone is the tension and firmness, the renitency (resistance) and elasticity of tissue in a state of health, normal existence; The mental and physical condition known as disease is a disordered state because of an unusual amount of tension above or below that of tone;
... normal and abnormal amount of strain or laxity are due to the position of the osseous (skeletal) framework, the neuroskeleton, which not only serves as a protector to the neural system, but, also, as a regulator of tension. The present and future make-up of individualized spirits depend upon the cumulative mental function which, like all functions, is modified by the structural condition of the impulsive, transmitting, neural system"
- pg. 10, The Chiropractor, 1914

So what does all that mean? Simply there is an infinite wisdom in your body that knows exactly what it is doing and expresses itself perfectly. This wisdom provides the body with a tone that gives way to optimal function. This tone will be present as long as there is no interference with the wisdom that creates it. The purpose of chiropractic is to free the body from these interference's such that the inborn wisdom could express itself at its greatest potential. Dr. Margil is a Chiropractor whose training emphasizes in tonal (meningeal and structural) integrating and adjusting.

Taking A Natural Systemic Approach To Healing

Chiropractic is an overall way of looking at the human body. It's based on the idea that the body is self-sustaining and self-healing. The body is in essence completely controlled by the brain through its connection via the spinal cord and the vast networks of nerves that make up the body. When this system is not functioning at its peak, the overall performance of the human body is lacking.

In the chiropractic world, drugs and medicine are not utilized as a form of treating a patient. While supplementation and nutrition are almost always a part of the bigger picture, drugs and prescriptions can be viewed as band-aids to treat symptoms rather than going to the source and treating the real problem.

While it's often perceived that the chiropractor is solely here to treat back and neck pain, this is simply a small piece of what the profession really is capable of handling. Chiropractors not only treat soft and hard tissue problems such as sciatica and joint pain, but are largely called on to deal with more significant issues. Some of these issues include fibromyalgia, allergies, insomnia, headaches and many more.
