Dr. Martin Raboy Chiropractor

The word chiropractic derives from the Greek words cheir, meaning 'treatment by hand', and praxis – 'the practice of'. The aim of the chiropractic profession is to diagnose, treat, and prevent disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system, as well as the effects of these disorders on general health. The profession views as central the relationship between the spine and musculoskeletal system, and its coordination by the nervous system. Chiropractic emphasizes the body's ability to recover naturally (homeostasis).
Therefore, chiropractic treatment does not involve the use of drugs or surgery. It rather focuses on solving problems having to do with dysfunction and partial dislocation of joints, primarily through manual manipulation of the spine, which is called Chiropractic Adjustment.

Research demonstrates that 95% of people who seek chiropractic treatment suffer mainly from back pain and skeletal pain (the back, neck, head, shoulders, arms and legs). The rest are patients with an assortment of internal problems which are either caused or enhanced by limited movement ability of the vertebrae and their tissue, which manifests itself in the nervous system. Among the ensuing problems are hearing and vision impairment, asthma and other respiratory difficulties, dysmenorrhea, infantile colic, tonsillitis, constipation and other digestive problems.

Chiropractic was founded and evolved into a separate profession at the end of the 19th century in the United States. By the 1960's and 70's foundations were laid for its wider acceptance with the public and the medical community. It was then that educational and licensing standards improved, alongside publication of some substantial research, as well as legal recognition and regulation in all the US states and various other countries. Despite initial suspicion from traditional medical practitioners, in the past 20 years chiropractic treatment received growing acknowledgement as significant evidence testified to its efficacy. In the 1990's chiropractic was recommended in cases of back pain, neck pain and headache by interdisciplinary expert panels as national clinical guidelines in various countries, including the US, UK and Canada.

With more and more articles in the field being published, the level of accreditation and standards of educational institutions in chiropractic are also raised, with the added benefit of mutual respect and cooperation between chiropractors and other medical professionals. Interdisciplinary treatment is today the standard, with chiropractors and medical doctors, physical therapists and others working side by side or referring and receiving patients from one another so that maximum benefits can be achieved.
