You may not realize this but, the curriculum for medical doctors and chiropractors are extremely similar with the exception of two areas. We take most of the same classes with the major exception being pharmaceutical drugs and surgery.
Where we differ greatly is our approach to healthcare. We treat the cause of the underlying problem which results in the symptom.
The basic philosophy of chiropractic is built on the belief that the body is not designed to be sick. It is the chemical, physical and emotional stresses that interfere with our bodies ability to fight off these problems. Too often people waste a lot of time and money trying to get rid of the symptom instead of attacking the cause. This is where Chiropractic can help!!
