I Bet You Didn't Think of This When You Typed Chiropractic Colorado Springs CO
Did you know that only about 7.4% of the US population
is served by chiropractors according to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA)
. It's hard to believe given that is seems like there is a chiropractic
office on every corner of Colorado Springs CO
. And when I speak to a group, it seems like at least 50% of them have been to a chiropractor. But that is what the statistics say.
It may be because people still associate chiropractic with only back pain, popping noises, and witch doctors. Doctors of chiropractic
had an up hill battle to fight when they came on the health care stage in the late 1800s, even though it was the "Father of Medicine," Hippocrates, who wrote two books on manipulation of the spine and the power of the central nervous system. The irony of this is akin to the fact that the "Father of Medicine" was the same guy that said, "Let they medicine be they food, and thy food be thy medicine." We consume more prescription drugs than any country in the world, by far, as our "medicine." Chiropractic
may only serve 7.4% of the population of the US because chiropractors have positioned themselves as the anti-thesis and sometimes nemesis (arch enemy) to the more widely accepted allopathic medicinal doctor (MDs). This was a poor marketing move by chiropractors
. "Can't we all just get along?"
However, today, the definition of chiropractic is more fuzzy. While chiropractic has its root in the word "chiro," meaning hands, some chiropractors
use instruments and computers to adjust the spine, FDA-approved laser technology for pain relief and fancy $150,000 spinal decompression
machines for herniated discs, X-rays, MRIs, and some don't even adjust patients. Those that don't adjust practice functional medicine using blood tests to identify the causes of disease and then eliminating the cause, thereby healing the symptoms. Chiropractic
has managed to stay true to its powerful philosophical roots (that when the body is brought back to function according to its design that it can heal itself) and stay natural, which is something I'm proud of, but it is certainly expanding its borders. Now medical doctors and doctors of osteopathy are marketing the same machines and techniques as chiropractors.
These doctors are approaching the same problems from different philosophical angles, using similar techniques. Health care is changing, and chiropractic Colorado Springs CO
