Welcome to Chicago Neck and Back Institute.
Here at Chicago Neck and Back Institute we practice the Science, Art, and Philosophy of chiropractic care. Based on two sound principals, " the nervous system controls the function of virtually every cell, tissue, organ, and system of the body", and "only the body can truly heal itself."
Based on scientific fact, the nervous system controls everything. The nervous system consists of The Brain, The Spinal Cord, and the nerves of the body. While the brain is protected by the skull, the spinal cord is much more vulnerable, covered by twenty four moving vertebrae. When these bones lose their normal motion or position, they can irritate the nervous system. This can disrupt the normal function of the tissues and organs these nerves control. The science of Chiropractic Care is locating these areas of malfunction.
Chiropractic Doctors train extensively to become experts of the right amount of force, the right direction and speed of which to adjust a vertebrae or section of the spine. Chiropractic Doctors, after a thorough examination and review of your health history will recommend a care program specific to your needs. This may include a series of adjustments and exercises to restore your spine to normal function. The art of chiropractic care is to correct spinal malfunctions.
The philosophy of chiropractic care is simply, Doctors don't heal, only the body can heal itself. Chiropractic Care is identifying the root cause of your condition, aligning the body to heal the original problem, and strengthening the body naturally. Many traditional doctors heal the symptoms through medications often times never completely curing the root causes.
The philosophy of a Chiropractic Doctor is to reduce interference to your inborn healing ability.
