You should care, because the answer may totally be affecting your health and therefore also your quality of life.
Many traditional doctors only assess you, their patient, as one unit among many. They put aside any sense of art in your diagnosis & treatment and practically deify the science, a science often based on questionable big company research. Non-artist doctors have locked away palettes & paints in exchange for pharmaceutical “one size fits all” solutions to what they only see as biology or at best biochemistry. They have taken a magnifying glass to examine the paint on a canvass and never gazed at the picture as a whole.
An artist doctor sees his clients and the world differently. You are unique and an individual. The body you wear day after day carries its own inherent characteristics. You are an original design…a special edition! You are the greatest portrayal of art ever! That said, why would you ever want someone who will not see the art, treat you as only a biological science experiment.
The phrase the “Art and Science of Chiropractic” is unique to the field of Chiropractic for a reason. A good chiropractor doesn’t eschew the science over the art or vice versa. Both are important factors in attaining optimal wellness.
Chiropractic appreciates the role of the nervous system as the master controller of all cells, tissues and organs in the body and how any irritation or interference will hinder communication within that body. Rather than treating a specific disease or condition, Chiropractic focuses on removing any of the interferences, such as subluxations, that inhibit the innate ability of the human body to heal itself. The detection of the vertebral subluxation and deliverance of the chiropractic adjustment to correct the subluxation is the art of chiropractic. It is an art that takes experience and training to hone, but what a difference it makes to be under such care. A good chiropractor can tell if you are a subluxated Picasso or a peaceful Monet.
The human spine is made up of 24 movable bones called vertebrae – the canvass for your chiropractic artist. Your adjustment is where the science and art meet.
