Short Form, New Patient Orientation

34th Principle in 3 parts…

In A Nutshell

Most people feel that if they complicate something, it makes them sound really important, even if the language that they use fails to communicate their point. Most Chiropractors are no different. They take the simple and wonderful principles of Chiropractic and complicate them so far out of proportion that even the new Chiropractic students can’t understand Chiropractic, let alone Chiropractic patients. The following is an example of how to simply and concisely explain Chiropractic to the students as well as the layperson.

PEOPLE CONSULT CHIROPRACTORS FOR FOUR REASONS

1. Treatment of a specific problem only
2. Treatment and prevention
3. Spinal/Neurological Corrective Care (Reconstructive care)
4. Lifetime family Wellness Care

HEALTH IS OPTIMUM PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND SOCIAL WELL BEING AND NOT MERELY THE ABSENCE OF DISEASE AND INFIRMITY.

THERE ARE THREE FACTORS IN OBTAINING HEALTH:

Wholeness… Having all your body parts
Function… Having these parts working @ 100%
Time… Maintaining 100% function throughout your life.

KEY TO HEALTH IS FUNCTION

The brain and nervous system control the function of all the parts of your body.

If you interfere with the nerve system, it will cause malfunction, abnormal behavior and reduced life expectancy.

The major interference to the nervous system know by science today is the vertebral subluxation complex (VSC).

VSC is a malfunction of the spine which results in nerve system trauma and ill health.

The VSC is identified by its 5 components:

Kinesiopathology… Abnormal Spinal Function
Neuropathophysiology… Abnormal Nerve System Function
Myopathology… Abnormal Muscular Activity
Histopathology… Soft Tissue Degeneration
Spinal Pathophysiology… Bone Degeneration

The severity of VSC is recognized by its four phases:

Phase One – Misalignment and Malfunction
Phase Two – Tissue Degeneration (discs)
Phase Three – Fusion
Phase Four – Bone Remodeling

VSC causes body malfunction and degeneration

Chiropractors correct VSC with three types of care:

Initial intensive care… Beginning care when symptoms are usually reduced or eliminated
Reconstructive care… Maximum spinal/neurological correction
Wellness care… Lifetime family health care

Since VSC begins in childhood, frequently at birth, chiropractic care should begin at day one.
In conclusion, K.I.S.S.: keep it successfully simple!
