Chiropractic isn't Alternative Anything says Corte Madera Chiropractor Dr Harte

I kind of cringe whenever someone puts Chiropractic in the slot of alternative, natural or complementary Medicine. I know that it's not meant in a nasty way. It's just that it's so wrong.

The operative word in Natural Medicine, Alternative Medicine, Complementary Medicine is, well... Medicine. Medicine is NOT an all-encompassing word for everything involving health. What Medicine is defined as is the diagnosis and treatment of disease. This is carried through whether it be traditional, "western" Medicine, or accupuncture, or herbal Medicine, whatever. All of these systems utilize the Educated Intelligence of the practitioner to heal the body from the Outside-in, in other words, to tell the body what to do.

Chiropractic is separate and distinct. The Principle of Chiropractic is that healing... health... only comes from Above-down, Inside-out. By the correction of nerve interference, Vertebral Subluxation through the chiropractic adjustment, the body heals itself, expresses more of Life. This is different... fundamentally different. from everything else.

A sad thing is when some of my lesser colleagues do not understand this, and they mistakenly guide people in the wrong direction, presenting Chiropractic as a natural treatment of back pain. Not so.
