Chiropractic vital role in Spinal Health Month

Dear Editor,

I am writing this letter to make you aware that once again the month of October has been proclaimed by our state government as Spinal Health Month. And that Doctors of Chiropractic play an important role as one of the experts on spinal health.

As even more evidence supporting the effectiveness of chiropractic continue to emerge, consumers are turning in large numbers to chiropractic care – a non-surgical, drug-free treatment option. The focus of chiropractic care is on the integrity of your nervous system. It is a scientific fact that your brain, spinal cord and the rest of your nerves control every aspect of your body. If there is a hindrance of vital nerve links between the brain and your body, then ill health can result.

A common source of interference comes from the moving bones (spine) that encase the “information superhighway” of your spinal cord. These subluxations can produce a variety of health problems. Today’s Chiropractic doctor is well educated and passes stringent licensing examinations before earning the right to practice. A thorough examination helps locate areas of nervous system compromise. The moving bones of the spine are common culprits. And specific chiropractic adjustments help reduce these interferences. The intent is to restore your body’s ability to regulate and heal itself, without drugs, without surgery. Many medical doctors, orthopedists and neurosurgeons recognize the importance of chiropractic care for neuromusculoskeletal disorders and are making more and more referrals.

Chiropractic is simple. It is natural. It honors the wisdom of your body, and it has helped millions enjoy relief and better health for more than a century. Anyone who has a spine (that is everyone) needs to have their spine checked periodically.

Yours in good health,

Dr. Martin Shealy,
