What is Chiropractic?

The Science

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that the nervous system, mainly your brain and spinal cord, controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. Your body is much like the Internet: your brain is your computer, your spinal cord is the information highway, your spinal vertebrae which house nerves, arteries and veins are the links to your organs, such as the heart, lungs, intestines, and reproductive organs. The disruption of the function of these tissues or organs and the nerve control is called Vertebral Subluxation Complex or VSC. Chiropractic is the science of finding these areas of spinal malfunction, the art of correcting them and the philosophy of all things natural as we have been created.

The Art

Our doctors master the adjusting “art” of chiropractic, which includes a comprehensive evaluation, a review of health history, and arrive at a clear diagnosis and a recommended specific treatment plan customized for each patient. This includes specific spinal adjustments. Adjustment describes many hundreds of ways and techniques of directed and controlled pressure to restore spinal segments to a more normal position, allowing the nervous system to be restored to its properly functioning state. Chiropractic is truly an art.

The Philosophy

Chiropractic philosophy recognized that the power that created the body can heal the body – as long as there is no interference. The doctor does not heal you; he is a co-facilitator with you for your body to be put in the correct environment to heal itself. The main purpose of the chiropractor is to reduce interference to your inborn, innate healing ability. Our mission is to enhance the lives of our patients by improving their overall health. We want to educate them and empower them to take responsibility in achieving optimal wellness.


I had a pop in my neck one morning and that’s what led me to go to the chiropractor.  Before my first chiropractor appointment, I was having 3-4 headaches per week.  Since my first adjustment I haven’t had ONE headache.

The chiropractic care I have received has greatly improved my neck motion. I also no longer wake up at night with my hands hurting and that they have fallen asleep. Also my back no longer is painful.

In April my back was so bad I could hardly walk without crying with pain. My daughter talked me into coming to Sacred Health. Dr. Leland took x-rays and told me my back was bad with scoliosis. I started treatments 3 times a week. Slowly I began to improve. Then I broke my leg and ankle, had surgery, but Dr. Leland still kept working on my back. I now am down to 1 time per week. Little pain. I know I will never be 100%, but this is really good.
