What Exactly Does a Chiropractor Do?


Maybe you’re wondering about going to a chiropractor or maybe you’re asking yourself, “What is the doctor doing when I’m in his office?” We’re glad you asked. Here’s a simple explanation and it’s the reason why chiropractic has become the most popular drug-free healing art in the world today.


Using his/her hands and various instruments, Doctors of Chiropractic locate and release a serious form of stress in your spine and body structure called a subluxation. Chiropractors are the only professionals trained to do this.


What is a subluxation?


A subluxation is a tiny distortion in your spine and structural system that irritates your nervous system and stresses your entire body. These distortions may be tiny but they can cause big problems. How?


Subluxations make you off balance. This causes your ligaments, tendons and muscles to work harder because an off-balance person is not in harmony with gravity. Sitting, standing and moving take more energy resulting in fatigue and ultimately a feeling of being exhausted all the time.


A person who is out of balance often has “hot spots” or painful areas in their muscles and joints due to overworking certain muscle groups and underworking other muscle groups.


Additionally, subluxations can affect your internal organs and glands – even your brain.


Are You Scared of Germs?


We’re full of germs, bugs, micro-organisms, bacteria, viri, protozoa and more at all times. Billions of these tiny life forms cover every part of our bodies on the outside and on the inside. In fact, germs outnumber our body cells by about 10 to 1. There are more bugs in our bodies than there are cells of us. We can’t get rid of germs and shouldn’t get rid of germs. Without all these germs in our bodies we would die – we need them, they are a necessary part of living.


Do germs make us sick? If germs made us sick, there wouldn’t be a person alive who wasn’t lying in bed sick and moaning with a fever, diarrhea, achiness, rashes, eruptions and more. Germs live in an ecological balance inside and outside us. If we have a good balance of germs we will be healthy. If we are toxic and chemically out of balance these germs that live quietly within us will multiply and get off balance.




Antibiotics do not make us healthy. They actually make us sicker by driving disease deep and/or by not letting us detoxify properly.


Questions & Answers About Chiropractic


Q: Can chiropractic care help reading and schoolwork?


A: You might be surprised to learn that students (including adults) under chiropractic care have shown improvements in school work and even IQ.


Many parents have noticed improvements in grades, concentration and conduct of their children after they’ve seen their Doctor of Chiropractic. Chiropractic doesn’t only help people with learning problems, chiropractic also helps good students become great students. (1-4)


Traditional Eating


High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS)


HFCS is a highly processed chemical used in lots of commercial products as a cheap substitute for regular sugar. And if sugar is bad for your health then HFCS is horrible. Not only does it contribute far more to obesity than sugar (5) it produces (in animal studies):

  • Impaired glucose tolerance
  • High insulin levels
  • Insulin resistance
  • High triglycerides
  • High blood pressure


HFCS also contributes to fatty liver and the buildup of dangerous deposits in your blood vessel walls. (6) This leads to plaque buildup, causing increased susceptibility to both strokes and heart attacks, and accelerated aging. (7) As if that weren’t bad enough, HFCS has now been found to contain mercury. In January 2009, the journal Environmental Health reported that mercury had been found in nearly half of all tested samples of commercial HFCS. (8)



How can you avoid HFCS?


That’s simple, merely read food labels. Other processed sugars to avoid are “inulin,” “iso glucose,” “glucose-fructose syrup,” “dahlia syrup,” “tapioca syrup,” “glucose syrup,” “corn syrup,” “crystalline fructose,” “fruit fructose” and “agave.”


Most sodas are loaded with HFCS as are many fruit juices, ketchup, salad dressings, sauces, baked goods, crackers, cornflake crumbs, chicken broth, stuffing mixes, cereals and more.

Researching Chiropractic

Chiropractic clinical case histories have been a regular feature of our patient newsletter since its inception. There seems to be no limit to the health problems that respond to chiropractic care. How many people suffering, on drugs, facing a life of limitation could be helped by chiropractic care?


Probably most of them.


Ear infections and prenatal drug exposure. A 13-month-old baby boy with otitis media had been born premature and delivered through cesarean section with a vacuum used for extraction. At birth his blood contained opiates, methamphetamine and other amphetamines. He had been experiencing bouts of otitis media since three months of age and had previously been managed by medical doctors with rounds of antibiotics and nasal saline.


Chiropractic analysis revealed subluxations in the cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacroiliac regions. The boy was checked and adjusted where vertebral subluxations were found and corrected. His mother reported that his otitis media resolved the following week. He continues regular chiropractic care and has not been on any antibiotics since 13-months of age. (9)


Infertility. A 24-year-old woman began chiropractic care with a chief complaint of back pain and a 3.5-year history of infertility. She had infrequent progesterone-induced menstrual cycles.


Physical examination showed postural abnormalities, paraspinal muscular tenderness, myospasm and vertebral subluxations. She

was managed for vertebral subluxations through specific chiropractic care. By the ninth visit she had her first normal menstrual cycle since the start of chiropractic care and by the twelfth visit she was pregnant. (10)


Success Story

Neck Pain


I hurt my arm helping my daughter move. Tendonitis was diagnosed by an orthopedic doctor. Physical therapy was used to treat it and it was pain free until the pain seemed to travel up to my neck. It hurt in many areas of my neck – front and back. I had to stop exercising and spent a lot of time resting. Movement was hard – up and down, side to side! I felt as if I had aged tremendously because I hurt all the time.


Dr. Horning was recommended to me by a friend. I had never been to a chiropractor in my 59 years. Dr. Horning has evaluated and re-evaluated me since I began coming to him. He has tried different techniques. It feels as if it’s been a long haul but I feel great now! It’s amazing how different I feel physically and mentally now that my neck does not hurt all the time! I am exercising again and feel really good!


Thank you, Dr. Horning!        -Jayne C.




In Richardson, Texas a State Trooper was running radar. He had a perfect spot to watch for speeders, but wasn't getting any. Then he discovered the problem. A 12-year-old boy was standing up the road with a hand painted sign which read "RADAR TRAP AHEAD!" 


The officer later found a young accomplice down the road with a sign reading "TIPS" and a bucket full of money. (And we used to just sell lemonade!) 

A young woman was pulled over in Austin, Texas for speeding. As the Texas State Trooper walked to her car window, flipping open his ticket book, she said, "I bet you are going to sell me a ticket to the Texas State Police Ball." He replied, "Texas State Troopers don't have balls." There was a moment of silence while she smiled and he realized what he'd just said. He then closed his book, got back in his patrol car and left. She was laughing too hard to start her car.
