Chiropractic, The Best Kept Secret In Health Care
The above headline came from a web site called www.parentsplace.com. This web site covers many issues in parenting but seems to do an exceptional job with chiropractic. In this particular article the authors do a good job of describing the chiropractic philosophy when they say, "Chiropractic is based on a vitalistic philosophy, which recognizes simply, that life, and therefore health, is an expression of an inner wisdom -- an innate intelligence animating every cell within our genetic design." In that article they go on to quote Deepak Chopra, M.D., "Intelligence is present everywhere in our bodies ... our own inner intelligence is far superior to any we can try to substitute from the outside..."
In addition this web site covers additional areas of chiropractic with relationships to children. The article gives links to each of those subjects which are worth reading. These additional articles are: Is Chiropractic Just for Back Pain?, Subluxations and Stress, What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?, Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy, The First Subluxation, Kids and Chiropractic, Ear Infections, Colic, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, and The Future.
The authors of the article, Deb Donovan and Bob VanMetter, sum up the chiropractic approach in a concise and exact manner. "Chiropractors work with the spine, not necessarily because its the source of neck and back pain, but because it houses and protects the central nervous system -- that system which monitors, controls and regulates all body function, allowing the body to adapt to its environment, both internal and external."
