Nix Chiropractic Terms Of Acceptance

When an individual or family seeks and is accepted into a program of chiropractic care,it is esssential for all parites to be working toward the same objective. We have only one goal, and it is important that everyone understands both the objective and the method we will use to move consistently toward that objective. This will prevent any confusion or disappointment.

Health: A state of optimal physical, mental and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

Vertebral Subluxation: A disrelationship of one or more of the 24 vertebra in the spinalcolumn which causes alteration of nerve function and interference to the transmissionof mental impulses, resulting in a lessening of the body's innate ability to express its maximum health potential. Subluxations are caused by many of the things you do everyday and keep your whole body from functioning properly. It is our absolute conviction that the body is always better off without this interference.

Adjustment: An adjustment is the specific application of forces to facilitate the body's correction of vertebral subluxation. Our chiropractic method of correction is by specific adjustments of the spine.

Consequently, the objective of Nix Chiropractic is to provide a chiropractic adjustment to correct subluxation thereby restoring normal nerve function. We do not offer to diagnose or treat any disease or condition other than to determine the presence of vertebral subluxation. However, if during the course of a chiropractic spinal analysis, we encounter non-chiropractic or unusual findings, we will let you know. If you desire advice, diagnosis or treatment for those findings, we will recommend that you seek the services of a health care provider who specializes in that area. Chiropractic in our office is not an alternative or substitute for medicine.

Regardless of what the disease is called, we do not offer to treat it. We do not offer advice regarding treatment prescribed by others. OUR ONLY PRACTICE OBJECTIVE is to eliminate a major interference to the expression of the body's innate wisdom. Our only method is specific adjusting to correct vertebral subluxations.
