When an individual seeks chiropractic health care and I accept this individual for such care, it is essential for both to be workingtowards the same objective. Chiropractic has only one goal. The goal is to eliminate Subluxations within the spinal column, which interferes with the expressionof the body's innate wisdom. It is important that you as the patient understand both the objective and the method that will be used to attain our goal. This will prevent any confusion or disappointment.
Adjustment: An adjustment is the specific application of forces to facilitate the body's correction of vertebral Subluxation. My chiropractic method of correction is specific adjustments of the spine and extremities.
Health: A state of optimal physical, mental, and social well being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Vertebral Subluxation: A misalignment of one or more of the 24 vertebrae in the spinal column which causes alteration of nerve function and interference to the transmission of mental impulses, resulting in a lessening of the body's innate ability to expressits maximum health potential. Ancillary treatment: In addition to spinal adjustments I may adjust subluxations in other joints of the body. When necessary Imay also recommend specific exercises and /or therapies such as ice, heat, electrical stimulation or ultrasound. I do not offer to diagnose or treat any disease or condition other than Subluxation. However, if during the course of chiropractic examination we encounter non-chiropractic or unusual findings, I will advise you.
If you desire advice, diagnosis, treatment for thosefindings, I will recommend that you seek the services of a health care provider who specializes in the area. Regardless of what the disease is called, I do not offer to treat it. Nor do I offer advice regarding treatment prescribed by others. MY ONLY PRACTICE OBJECTIVE is to eliminate major interference to the expression of the body's innate wisdom. My method is specific adjusting to correct vertebral and joint Subluxations.
I have read and fully understand the above statements.
