Chiropractic Vs Medicine

There is a lack of understanding where each profession does its best work for better health. First people must realize that Chiropractic wellness care is not in competition with what medicine does.

Crises Care

Medicine is the best health care system we have for crises care. It has prided itself on the fact that people with health crises live longer than they have in the past. This is undoubtedly a great development in health care today.

Medicine takes most of its criticism over the issue of long-term health care, especially the use of drugs over a long period. In the last decade, different levels of research has shown that long-term health care belongs to the realm of natural methods.

Long-Term Health Care

An increasing number of medical professionals are saying that people should not look to drugs for long-term health care and to move to more natural methods unless their situation is dire. The World Health Organization, The United Nations, and local governments openly declare that the future of health care is in dealing with methods that strengthen the body. Crisis care should be left for crises not for daily health care.

There have been numerous advancements of natural health methods in Chiropractic wellness care. If medical doctors of the future are better educated about the successes of natural methods of Chiropractic, it will greatly truncate this conflict of Chiropractic versus medicine.


If someone’s health has failed and they experience a heart attack, I am very grateful that we have a system of paramedics and medical doctors that can keep that person alive. However, if for the years before, that the person had been involved with natural health methods Chiropractic has to offer, this person would have had a dramatic decrease in the risk of having the heart attack in the first place. The person would also have had a decreased risk of many other health crises. In addition, the person would have a stronger, healthier body and a higher quality of life throughout those years as well.

Chiropractic Philosophy

Chiropractic is based on the premise that we all have a brain and nervous system that holds all the information needed to have a perfectly healthy body. Health problems exist because there are blockages in how this information is allowed to get to the body for it to heal itself.

Chiropractors look for the blockages to how our nervous system is supposed to communicate with our bodies and removes them so as to allow the body to successfully communicate and heal.

Chiropractic wellness care prides itself on the fact that proactive care leads to healthier people. These people experience a decrease in many different diseases and health problems as their lives progress.

As Dr. Deepak Chopra has said: “All we need to do to have perfect health is to remove the interferences to how our body is supposed to work. We do not need to add unnatural substances.”
