Brian Schroeder is the Doctor of Chiropractic at Natural Health and Chiropractic.¬†Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine that emphasizes diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, under the hypothesis that these disorders affect general health via the nervous system.¬† It is generally categorized as complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), a characterization that many chiropractors reject. Although chiropractors have many attributes of primary care providers, chiropractic has more of the attributes of a medical specialty like dentistry or podiatry. The main chiropractic treatment technique involves manual therapy, including manipulation of the spine, other joints, and soft tissues; treatment also includes exercises and health and lifestyle counseling. Traditional chiropractic assumes that a vertebral subluxation interferes with the body’s innate intelligence, a vitalistic notion that brings ridicule from mainstream health care. A large number of chiropractors want to separate themselves from the traditional vitalistic concept of innate intelligence.
