What is Chiropractic?
- Chiropractic is a branch of the healing Arts that focuses on human health through the relationship between structures (the musculo-skeletal system) and function (the nervous system) of the body.
- Chiropractic offers a clinically cost effective treatment for many neuro-musculo-skeletal conditions including but not restricted to back pain, neck pain and headaches.
- The scope of chiropractic extends to conditions that can arise as a result of abnormal functioning of the nervous system and or the joints of the body.
Why choose chiropractic
Because chiropractic is a bloodless, drugless form of therapy that has a much lower risk of adverse reactions than does conventional medical care.
What about chiropractic “Miracles”?
In over 35 years of practice Dr. McLeod has seen many chiropractic miracles, and by miracles we mean health conditions that one would not think would respond to chiropractic care. Conditions like asthma, seizures and bleeding disorders. For a more complete list of extraordinary positive outcomes see – I Had a Patient Who… The Miracle of Self Healing.
Though positive results in these types of conditions can be capricious, it bears powerful testimony to the power of the body to heal itself and maintain homeostasis. (Homeostasis – The tendency of the body to seek and maintain a condition of balance or equilibrium within its internal environment, even when faced with external changes.)
The Chiropractic Oath
I do hereby swear before God and these assembled witnesses, both corporeal and spiritual, that I will do my utmost to keep this my sacred, trusted oath, as a graduate of the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, that henceforth:
I will esteem those who taught me this Art, Science and Philosophy of Chiropractic, and with this torch of knowledge, fashioned by Hippocrates, I will light the way to the understanding of those natural laws which preserve the human body as a fitting temple of the soul.
I will keep the physical, mental and spiritual needs of the sick as my foremost duty, ever searching for and correcting the cause of their disease to the best of my ability, insofar as my science is in the highest precepts of my Alma Mater and harmonious with the Vis Medicatrix Naturae.
I will at all times stand ready to serve humanity, without distinction of race, creed or colour, in my lifelong vocation of preventing and alleviating human suffering, wherever it may be found, by exemplifying in my own life a pattern of living in harmony with the laws of nature.
I will refrain from any act of wrongdoing and will regard the keeping of a patient’s confidence as a moral obligation, using any such information only in his/her best interests.
May God so direct the skillful use of my hands that I may bring strength to the sick, relief to the suffering, peace of mind to the anxious, and inspiration to all humanity to attain bountiful health that we may live this life to the fullest expression of its innate endowments.
I therefore solemnly swear to uphold these principles and precepts to the best of my ability, so help me God.
