What is Chiropractic?

by admin


There is a lot of misinformation about what chiropractic care actually is. Many people believe that chiropractic is only for people who have “thrown out” their back. While this is certainly an important aspect of chiropractic (and a welcome relief for those who have sustained a trauma of that magnitude!), there is more to chiropractic than that. Patients don’t need to be doubled-over in pain to be subluxed, or misaligned. Often, the discomfort we carry in our bodies every day is easily reversed with regular chiropractic adjustments and self-care.

Chiropractic medicine typically works by pinpointing subluxations (bone misalignments) and realigning them. Not only does it feel better to be aligned, it also helps the body function optimally. In the spinal column, for example, alignment is tantamount to having a completely “clear” pathway from the central nervous system to the peripheral nervous system: signals travel quickly, and without interruption, from one point to another. A misaligned spine, on the other hand, slows down the body and inhibits it from functioning optimally.

At The Vital Energy Center, Dr. Kohler has worked with a variety of different patients with different health and wellness goals, problems, or concerns. He has worked extensively with dancers, runners, bikers, people who have been in accidents or traumas, as well as with the ubiquitous Seattle software engineer. Patients come to him not only for help with spinal misalignment, but also for other concerns, be they digestive, respiratory, nutritive, or even emotional.
