What makes a Chiropractor Wholistic? The word Holistic is a common buzzword when we discuss health care. Sadly, it is about as meaningful as "natural." While Holistic means considering the body, mind, and spirit, many Health Care Providers merely pay it lip service. Wholistic Chiropractic is treating both the spine and the body as a series of integrated parts that are interdependent. A Wholistic Chiropractor's job description includes consideration of the alignment and health of muscles and ligaments as well as vertebral and extremity alignment. Finally, Wholistic Health Care searches for the cause of repeated subluxation, typically a repetitive movement, job, recreation, or habit, thus treating the whole person.
"I believe in treating the whole person. Chiropractic problems require the location and removal of subluxation (a bone and its contiguous structures out of alignment causing nerve interference). Sometimes the body, mind, and spirit need to be addressed together to find true cause and restore health. Health is not merely the absence of disease. It is a state of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well being."
The Directional Non Force Technique®, is an over 90 year old method founded and developed by Dr. Richard Van Rumpt, DC. The method involves a precise analysis and correction of subluxations causing nerve interference considering alignment from front to back (posterior), side (lateral), tilted, or back to front (anterior) and front to back (posterior). The bones, ligaments, muscles, and discs are aligned utilizing the thumbs to adjust with a few ounces of force. The reactive leg reflex is the indicator utilized to determine which segments are out of alignment. This is not a short leg, but is a leg which dynamically shortens in response to a physical challenge to the malpositioned segment causing nerve interference.
Chiropractic is the science and art of aligning the vertebra of the spine to remove nerve interference. There are three basic causes of this. Direct trauma or repetitive motion irritation often are the cause of subluxation, when a vertebra or other structure causes nerve interference. Sometimes, internal malfunctioning biochemistry or toxic exposure can cause it as well. Finally, intense emotional stress can trigger this problem as well. There are many different approaches to accomplishing the task of aligning, or adjusting the subluxated vertebra or structure, and D.N.F.T ®, or the Directional Non Force Technique® is among the gentlest of many Chiropractic services available on the market today.
