Hueytown Chiropractor, Dr. Peter J. DeFranco, Helps Explain Chiropractic In New Book

Hueytown AL, 07-APRIL-2014 - Hueytown Chiropractic Clinic and Dr. Peter DeFranco DC, representative of chiropractors in Hueytown, are pleased to announce the release of a new book which explains the philosophy and techniques utilized in chiropractic medicine. Although much has been written about chiropractic medicine over the years, a fresh look at the history and the current developments is a welcome document.

Speaking to an interviewer recently, Dr. DeFranco DC described some of the basics of chiropractic medicine. "Each year more than 15 million Americans choose chiropractic for safe, natural and effective relief from back pain, neck pain, headaches, extremity pain, poor overall health, low energy levels and much more. These people may have tried traditional medicine and been unsatisfied with the lack of results."

He continues, "The Association of Chiropractic Colleges (ACC) says 'chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs and surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.'"

Chiropractors today do not rely solely on spinal adjustments to offer acute pain relief. Many other disciplines may be included as part of a comprehensive regimen of care. There may be massage, ultrasound therapy, nutritional counseling, recommendations for exercise and lifestyle changes, and stress reduction techniques. Patients are supported and encouraged to take steps to improve overall wellness and the body's ability to heal itself.
