Understanding the Chiropractic Philosophy

Dr Mark photoAfter hurting his back working on his dad’s farm, Dr. Johnson went to a chiropractor he knew through a friend. His problem was resolved, and while there he noticed that someone was being treated for migraines. Dr. Johnson’s mom suffered from migraines, and he convinced her to see the chiropractor.
It helped her, too, and Dr. Johnson started asking more questions.

He discovered the Philosophy of Chiropractic was based on scientific facts as true as gravity. While in school he learned the vast philosophy of Chiropractic and how 33 principles have provided the backbone of the profession. Dr.Johnson likes to keep it simple breaking down all 33 principles into 3 known facts.

  • The body heals and regulates itself. If you have a cut or scrape a scab forms as part of the healing process. Even more complex, a broken bone is healed as the body creates more bone to mend the break. There is no medication necessary to carry out the normal healing and regulating commands of the body.
  • The organ system that controls everything in the body is the brain. The brain extends to become the spinal cord. From the spinal cord, nerves branch out to organs, muscles and all cells of the body. The nervous system is the first to develop upon conception. It is the commanding relay system like a computer processor or electrical wiring in your house.
  • Chiropractic is simple in understanding that we are concerned with anything that interferes with the nerves that communicate with the body and the brain. If anything interferes with this communication it is called a subluxation. Chiropractors remove the subluxation so that the nervous system can communicate at 100%.


You don’t want bad signals in your body just as you would not want a bad signal to your cell phone. A bad signal in your body, caused by a subluxation, is what leads to decreased healing and decreased regulating in your body. This is why proper alignment is necessary for optimal health.
