At Porter Chiropractic Clinic P.C., we believe that the human body is an incredible creation, capable of healing itself under most circumstances with a little assistance.
According to Gray’s Anatomy- the medical bible on anatomy- “The central nervous system controls and coordinates all functions of the human body”. The central nervous system- the brain and spinal cord- must be free of interference to optimally govern all functions of the body. This includes everything from the production of hormones and proper digestion, to muscle strength and coordination of professional athletes.
A condition called Subluxation occurs in a joint which causes a slight misalignment when it is overwhelmed by physical stress. When a subluxation exists in the spinal column, it often causes nerve interference which can cause dysfunction in the musculoskeletal system, digestive system, urinary system, immune system or nervous system. If these symptoms are determined to be likely caused by subluxation through listening to the patient and performing an examination, then the patient is informed of the condition and a course of treatment is discussed between doctor and patient(or legal guardian).
At Porter Chiropractic Clinic P.C., we believe that your healthcare is best determined by the doctor and the patient- a team approach. We do not believe that insurance companies, a “for-profit” organization, should have the right to interfere in the best course of action for the patient. They are financially motivated to provide the cheapest course of action which often results in prolonging proper diagnosis and treatment, as well as unnecessary pain and suffering.
