Welcome to Chicago Neck and Back Institute. Here and Chicago Neck and Back Institute we successfully combine Chiropractic and Medical care. We base our practice on the science and art of these two health care delivery systems. We are able to truly follow the biopsychosocial model of health care.
THE SCIENCE OF CHIROPRACTIC MEDICINE:
Based on scientific fact, the nervous system controls everything. The nervous system consist of the brain, spinal cord, and the nerves that are present all through the human body. While the brain is protected by the shell of our skull, the spinal cord is much more vulnerable. The spinal cord is covered with twenty-four moving bones these are called vertebrae. When these bones lose their normal movement or become unaligned they can irritate the nervous system. This can disrupt the normal function of the tissue, organs, and the nerves are controlling these disruptions resulting in malfunctions. The Science Of Chiropractic Medicine is locating these misaligned movements and malfunctions and treating the problem at its core. The Nervous System.
THE SCIENCE OF MEDICINE:
Every illness and disease progresses due to deterioration of normal function by structural, developmental abnormalities caused by viruses, bacteria, and germs. The science of medicine is to identify the deviation from the normal function.
THE ART OF CHIROPRACTIC MEDICINE:
Chiropractic Physicians train extensively to become experts at applying the right force, the right direction into which the the spine needs to be re-aligned, or repositioned. This is done by manipulating the vertebrae and adjusting the malfunction. This is called manipulation or adjustment of the spine.Chiropractic Physicians will give a patient thorough examination after taking the time to find out what medical problems the patient is experiencing. The Chiropractic Physician the does manipulations/adjustments, physical therapy, moderate exercises, bracing/casting and some form of traction such as spinal decompression or flexean abstraction. The Chiropractic Physician may also refer you to a Neurologist for pain management physical for co-treatment.The art of Chiropractic Medicine is to correct these malfunctions of the vertebrae, misalignment, fixation and restore normal function to the tissues and organs that these nerves control.
THE ART OF MEDICINE:
Medical and Chiropractic Physicians education and training is very similar and at times totally parallel one another. The Medical Physician will perform a thorough examination and review your health history. A treatment specific to your injury or condition will be recommended. This may include medication , synthetic and natural substance, injection, physical and psychological treatment to correct the deviation from normal function.
The Biopsychosocial model of healthcare is the approach stating biological (structured abnormalities, spinal misalignment, nerves, bacteria, genes, and injury),Psychological(behavior, emotion, thought) and Social (cultural, socioenvironment, socioeconomic) factors all play a significant role on human function in the context of disease and illness.
The merger between Chiropractic and Medical Physicians enables us to follow the biopsychosocial model in a team approach. As a team we can treat the "whole" person rather than just the symptoms or disease.
