Chiropractic Philosophy

Chiropractic was founded in 1895 by DD Palmer. His son BJ, developer of chiropractic, said that “Medicine is the study of disease and what causes a man to die. Chiropractic is the study of health and what causes a man to live.” It is a philosophy, science and art that is dedicated to the removal of nerve interference, permitting optimal nervous system function. Interference to the nervous system is called a Vertebral Subluxation.

Chiropractic is not designed to make you instantly feel better. It is designed to make you instantly heal better. Here at Goodland Chiropractic, Dr. Justine performs a detailed, thorough history. Completes a physical examination and detects vertebral subluxation through the rest of Gonstead's six part examination. She then removes this interference by performing a highly specific chiropractic adjustment.

Chiropractors are doctors of the Nervous System. The Nervous System allows for adaptation and integration of everything you experience. It is responsible for coordination and communication with every single cell in your body. Every day our bodies are under physical, emotional and chemical stresses. To adapt is crucial for survival and optimal wellness. The body has an innate ability to heal itself and maintain a state of balance. When there is interference, the Nervous system cannot maintain optimal function. It does everything in it's power to maintain the highest level of function and wellness that it can. By restoring this system with a specific chiropractic adjustment, the body restores itself to optimal function in every other system of the body.
