The Philosophy of Chiropractic

Chiropractic has a philosophy on healing and health which differs from the traditional medical view.

Chiropractors approach health in a holistic manner. In other words, chiropractors evaluate the entire person as a whole when assessing and treating a patient's health ailment or disease, rather than focusing solely on a symptom or specific area of the body.

Chiropractors know that the body is able to maintain and heal itself in most cases. We also know that true health is not achieved through the ingestion of chemicals or the cutting away of diseased tissues. Instead, health is something that comes from within and is inherent to our body.

The chiropractic doctor understands that circumstances occur which may require medical intervention, but ultimately, it is the body that conducts and manages the process of healing and not the doctor or externally applied forces.

When the chiropractic doctor corrects spinal abnormalities and eliminates spinal and nerve irritation and interference, pain is alleviated and the body's inborn healing capabilities are set into motion.

The doctors here at Back In Motion in Spokane, WA have a strong philosophy for helping people heal naturally. We look at the whole person, rather than just their symptoms. As we say in our mission statement: "We desire to correct the cause, not its effect, to free rather than control, and to assist rather than intrude. Our approach is a holistic one, whereby we treat the entire person, not just their symptoms. To this end, we will empower you with the knowledge and inspiration needed to choose optimal health solutions to treat yourself and your family."
