What is Chiropractic?
A Natural, Wholistic, and Pro-Active Approach to Health and Healing
At Kibby Chiropractic Center, we use a healthcare philosophy of evaluating one's health as a whole, as a sum of interdependently working systems, not as body parts. This philosophy is based on the concept that the body, given the correct environment, has the ability to be self-regulating and self-healing.
Your body functions are controlled by the brain. The spinal cord and the vast network of nerves carry the brain's messages to every tissue and organ in the body. When the nervous system is functioning at its peak, your body’s overall health and performance at an optimal level.
In the chiropractic world, we don’t prescribe drugs to treat our patients. In traditional medicine, too often, drugs and prescriptions are used as 'bandaids' to treat symptoms, rather than treating the source of the problem.
The US population makes up 5% of the worlds population. But, the US consumes 70% of the medications and drugs manufactured in the world. And, according to the World Health Organization, our standing, among the list of healthiest countries in the world, is declining. Drugs and medications can be essential in many cases, but their overuse seems evident. According to an article in the medical journal, Spine, approximately 16,000 people die each year in the US alone from the overuse of over-the-counter pain relievers.
Chiropractic care addresses health problems naturally, without the use of drugs or surgery.
