Are Chiropractors Back Doctors?

Yes and no.  Chiropractors are technically doctors of the central nervous system.  Due to the fact the nervous system runs down the spine, this is our main area of focus.  While many people have experienced natural relief from neck pain, back pain, headaches, arthritis, and other musculoskeletal conditions under chiropractic care, modern research has been showing outstanding overall health and wellness benefits as well.

Overall health and wellness through chiropractic care is probably achieved through optimizing function through the central nervous system.  Gray’s Anatomy textbook calls it the Master Control System of the body, as “every organ, system and function of the human body is under direct control of the central nervous system” (brain, spinal cord, and nerves).

Our nerve system controls our immune system and directs our natural ability to heal.  By removing interference in the nervous system with chiropractic adjustments, we restore brain-body communication so essential for optimal health and wellbeing.
