| Dopps Chiropractic at 6820 W Central in Wichita it's about helping people live healthier, fuller lives. Our Wichita Chiropractors
focus on the nervous system and painlessly, manually adjust the
vertebral column to affect the nervous
system. The nervous system is the master system in the body which
controls and coordinates all other systems such as respiratory,
digestive, muscular, and immune.
The nervous system includes the
brain, spinal cord, the spinal nerves
that exit the vertebral column through openings on the side of
each vertebra, and all the peripheral nerves
that branch off to serve organs, tissues, blood vessels and muscles.
Information from the environment, both external and internal,
goes through the spine to get to the brain. In the same manner,
information and decisions made in the brain go through the spine
to affect certain outcomes. It is a two-way flow of information.
The chiropractic adjustment which we provide for people in Wichita and the surrounding areas, is intended
to remove any disruptions or distortions of this energy flow that
may be caused by slight vertebral misalignments called subluxations.
Chiropractors are trained to locate these subluxations and then
to remove them to restore the normal flow of nerve energy, in
terms of both quality and quantity.
idea is that if the master system (the nervous system) is healthy
and functioning well, then other systems under its control will
also function in a more optimal fashion. Chiropractic is based
on the belief that the same innate intelligence that can grow
a single cell into a complex human being, made of billions of
cells, can also heal the body if it is free of disturbances to
the nervous system.
example, if the spinal area that supplies
nerve flow to the stomach is subluxated, then information going
to the brain regarding that organ and its function, digestion,
will be distorted and the brain will not receive accurate data
on its condition. Likewise, decisions made in the brain and conveyed
along the nervous pathways will be disrupted and the correct responses
cannot be made. It is essentially the same scenario for all other
organs, muscles and blood vessels. When a chiropractor removes
this interference, then the nervous system functions more optimally
and the body is able to heal itself via the two-way communication
philosophy of chiropractic is that health, not merely the absence
of symptoms, comes from within the
body, not from the outside. It is the innate, or inborn, intelligence
of our bodies that does the healing.
