Chiropractic

Chiropractic is the exact opposite of the man-made medical model with which we are all familiar.

Chiropractic involves the use of touch and not the use of synthetic drugs or invasive surgeries. It involves educating people about true health and exposing many misconceptions about our current approach to disease management - what we sometimes mistakenly refer to as "healthcare." These truths lead to liberating people from the bondage of our current system. Unfortunately, more and more chiropractors are considering a move away from the non-surgical, drug-free, neurologically-based premise of chiropractic.  We, however, continue to always uphold a philosophy of practice closer to God's idea of healthcare rather than the man-made idea of sick-care.

Many people assume that chiropractic can only address neck pain, back pain, and headaches. However, chiropractors are licensed in all fifty states to be frontline gatekeepers to the healthcare system - independent practitioners who provide primary care services. A doctor of chiropractic is a portal-of-entry primary care provider with full scope of service.

Many people also assume that to be a doctor, one must prescribe medications or perform surgical procedures. This could not be further from the truth, and prescribing physicians must actually rely upon pharmacists to fulfill written prescriptions. While we recognize a time and place for life-saving medications and surgeries, our current model of healthcare is not just broken. It is completely shattered. At Divine Design, we take pride in understanding that your body's ability to heal comes not from a manmade drug but from your Creator's careful ingenuity.

We also understand that the word "doctor" actually comes from the Latin word "docere" meaning "to teach." As a doctor, it is one's duty, therefore, to educate patients concerning the true meaning of health.

Unique to the chiropractic profession, there are dozens of varied adjusting techniques. Some patients prefer a physical, manual adjustment, while others prefer a lighter touch. Regardless, we treat each patient uniquely and according to his or her preferences while taking into consideration which approach will be most effective for their immediate health goals.

Divine Design utilizes a full body approach when treating patients.  This will include neurological evaluations, gait and postural analysis, motion palpation, muscle testing, nutritional evaluation, and laboratory diagnostics as necessary.

What Chiropractic Is And What Chiropractic Is Not:

"Chiropractic is not about an unknown intelligence in the universe or in our bodies. Chiropractic is not a religion or a cult. Chiropractic is not a scam. Chiropractic is based on neurology and not pseudo-science. Chiropractic is powerful even without the use of drugs. Chiropractors are trained physicians. Chiropractors are non-surgical nervous system specialists. Chiropractors do not treat symptoms - they treat the cause of those symptoms. Chiropractors do not chase pain - they chase the reason it's there. Chiropractors need to remember that they do not only manipulate the spine. They manipulate the nervous system, and the nervous system controls and coordinates EVERY organ and structure in the human body."
