50% of all Americans suffer from some form of chronic disease. 1 in 4 has multiple chronic diseases and 30% of children also have chronic illness.  In the early days of the development of the medical profession, the leading causes of death were acute infectious disease. Today, the leading causes of death are lifestyle based chronic diseases.  The major players are diet and lifestyle. Changing the behavior of the country's population concerning diet, exercise and stress management is the most important factor to prevent and reverse disease. The medical system is not set up to deliver this type of care. This is where the chiropractor comes into play. The chiropractic profession is uniquely qualified to be the leaders in the chronic disease area. Well versed in the areas of nutrition, exercise and stress management, doctors of chiropractic positively affect the lifestyle choices of thousands of patients every day. In addition, the service provided by the chiropractor is a 100% natural way of improving the function, performance and health of the human body. Spinal adjustments balance the spinal musculature improving range of motion, reduce the friction on spinal joints preventing progressive degenerative changes and most importantly improve nerve impulse flow to body's cells, tissues, organs and systems improving bodily function and thus health.
