Chiropractic Wellness is a process by which an individual can achieve ongoing health and well-being through the application of the scientifically substantiated concepts of D.D. Palmer, the founder of Chiropractic. Dr. Palmer, and later, with other researchers such as Hans Selye and George Goodheart, recognized the fact that all stressors of life could be categorized into three groups. They are: 1) Physical Stress (trauma, structural insufficiencies), 2) Chemical Stress (toxins, nutritional deficits, energetic disruptions), 3) Mental Stress (emotions, auto-suggestion).
Health enhancement and a state of wellness can only be created by providing regular care, or interventions, aimed at supporting the body’s own healing abilities, rather than merely alleviating symptoms. Our goal is to discover and identify potential disease processes before they can be medically quantified and qualified. This is accomplished by addressing each of the three stressors of life with implementation and adherence to the concept of the Triad of Health. This concept encompasses regular therapeutic intervention in three areas: 1) Structure (musculoskeletal, neurology, viscera), 2) Chemical (nutrition, hormones, toxin elimination), 3) Mental (stress management, education, faith).
“I desired to know why one person was ailing and his associate, eating at the same table, working in the same shop, at the same bench was not. Why? What difference was there in these two persons that caused one to have various diseases, while his partner escaped?” Dr. D. D. Palmer, Founder of Chiropractic
Belief and adherence to the principles and philosophy of Chiropractic gives an individual a life without fear. The knowledge of normal human physiology and the understanding of original chiropractic principles allows for the realization that the human body, under most circumstances, is fully capable of recognizing and adapting to the environment. You are completely deterministic as to your freedom to move, eat, and think, but realize that your body’s physiology is always in a state of adaptation to the environment you put it in. Act accordingly.
