TERMS OF ACCEPTANCE
When a patient seeks chiropractic care and we accept a patient for such care, it is essential for both to be working towards the same objective.
Chiropractic has only one goal: to eliminate misalignments within the spinal column which interfere with the expression of the body’s innate wisdom. It is important that each patient understand both the objective and the method that will be used to attain our goal. This will prevent any confusion or disappointment.
Adjustment: the specific application of forces to facilitate the body’s correction of vertebral subluxation. Our chiropractic method of correction is specific adjustments of the spine.
Health: a state of optimal physical, mental, and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
Vertebral Subluxation: a misalignment of one or more of the 24 vertebrae in the spinal column which causes the alteration of nerve function and interference to the transmission of mental impulses, resulting in a lessening of the body’s innate ability to express its maximum health potential.
We do not offer to diagnose or treat any disease or condition other than vertebral subluxation. However, if during the course of chiropractic spinal examination we encounter non-chiropractic or unusual findings, we will advise you. 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.
Regardless of what the disease is called, we do not offer to treat it. Nor do we offer advice regarding treatment prescribed by others. OUR ONLY PRACTICE OBJECTIVE is to eliminate major interference to the expression of the body’s innate wisdom. Our only method is specific adjusting to correct vertebral subluxations.
