Chiropractors are wellness doctors too

Many people are unaware that when chiropractors remove misalignments or subluxations of the spine, that it can contribute to the wellness of a patient.  Subluxations of the spine can put pressure on nerves in the surrounding area of the affected vertebrae.  That pressure can cause the function of the surrounding organs to be compromised.   When a chiropractor removes the subluxation through a chiropractic adjustment, the pressure can be alleviated and it can help improve normal function and boost the immune system.  Chiropractic does not claim to treat or heal diseases, it simply can aid the body in the healing process by removing nerve interference.  Well educated chiropractic patients know that at the onset of a simple immune related condition such as a cold or simply feeling run down, it is time for a chiropractic adjustment. They also know that regular maintenance care is very important. The Shull household, of course, practices this diligently!

Another way in which chiropractors are wellness doctors is that they have been educated to be nutritional consultants.  It is the philosophy of chiropractic that the quality of food that a person consumes has a direct effect on health and the body’s ability to function properly and healthfully. The good food is not always enough and we may need vitamin supplementation.   We live in such a fast-paced society and many Americans are not taking the time to care for their bodies nutritionally or are simply unaware of how to do it.  It is evident by the height of obesity and disease in our country.  Proper nutrition, water, and exercise, are just a few factors to mention that we all must have to combat this era of high stress and environmental toxins/pollutants.
