What Does a Chiropractor Cure?

My patients often ask questions like “Can Chiropractic cure my headaches?” or “Can a Chiropractor cure my asthma”? The truth is, a Chiropractor can’t cure anything.  As a matter of fact, no doctor, whether it be medical or Chiropractic, has ever cured anything.

To understand that, you must understand what healing, or curing, is.   It’s very simply the creation of new healthy tissue.  When you get a cut on your arm, billions of cells are destroyed.  Your body heals itself by replacing those damaged, or dead, cells with healthy new ones. When you have a sore throat, you have sick or dying cells in your throat.  Once your body replaces all of those bad cells with new cells, your soar throat is healed, or cured.

Here are 10 of the most popular reasons why patients seek Chiropractic Care:
