The Spiritual Nature of Chiropractic

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on April 17, 2010

Chiropractors have always been accused of being “different”.  In fact, as a profession we ARE different!  It’s that difference that makes chiropractic special and one reason why I chose to be a chiropractor.  And, that’s why many have chosen this as both their profession and Profession.  It’s also why so many people are choosing it as their path to health and happiness.  Let me explain.

There is a spiritual aspect to chiropractic that many in the profession would like to ignore.  Fortunately for you (and unfortunately for them) chiropractic has such strong spiritual roots that that connection can NEVER be erased.  And really, it is THAT spiritual root that makes chiropractic a natural choice for many in how they pursue their own health and vitality.

The very first premise of chiropractic is that “There is a Universal Intelligence in all matter that gives to it its properties and maintains it in existence.”  In other words, everything in the Universe is organized intelligently.  Further, that organizing force is in all living things, including us humans!  We chiropractors call that organizing force in living things Innate Intelligence. The job of Innate Intelligence is to help all living things not only cope with and adapt to its environment but to thrive and seek its greatest potential.

Some people use these terms interchangeably with God, Spirit, Creator, etc.  I don’t. I choose to neither personify nor deify those entities but to accept them as evidence that there WAS and IS a Creative Force that animates all life and enables it to thrive in harmony with and despite its environment at the same time.

But, the root premise of chiropractic is that YOU are part of something much bigger than the sum of your parts.  You are an expression of that Creative Force!  And when you are living at YOUR own potential, you are as great and healthy and vibrant as any other human being on the planet.  When you are at your potential, you exude an energy that draws people, resources and solutions to you like a magnet.   The ultimate goal of the chiropractor is to remove a physical blockage to the fullest expression of that Innate potential inside you.

The last and greatest of God’s Creation was Mankind.  To finish His Creation he breathed Life into Man and then rested and said “It is good”.  The Book says that we are EACH made in the likeness and image of the Creator of the Universe.  Is that weak, sick, ignorant and fearful?  NO!  You were made to be strong, vibrant, creative, healthy and full of joy. the chiropractor’s job is to help you reconnect with your Greatest Potential.
