What is a Chiropractor? - January 2019

By Cary Yurkiw

Dr. Cary Yurkiw

While working in a chiropractic office I have found that there is a lot more to it. Chiropractors know your history, they question you everyday life good and bad. They really care!


Every patient is different, every injury, every bone, every subluxation. There are is no one answer or treatment when it comes to choosing chiropractic; everything is based on the individual. No body has the same diet, exercise routine, stress level, work environment and your treatment has to take every aspect of you and your life into consideration. Chiropractors are the only health care professionals I know who come up with a recovery plan that revolves around you and you alone.

A chiropractor is a medical professional, but also is more involved with your daily routines. They take into consideration every aspect of your life, at work and home.


Doctors of Chiropractic go through years of education to work in this industry; they must have an excellent academic record. They must be able to empathize with patients, and be able to communicate and explain things in simple terms. They must have the skills to analyze and solve problems. The ability to concentrate, good observation skills, dexterity, patience, motivation and friendliness are important qualities. Because they often run a small business, they must also have management skills. There are many aspects of having a chiropractic clinic that people don’t realize; it’s more then going to work, adjusting patients and going home.


Many chiropractors spend hundreds of hours educating patients through seminars, classes and one on one consultation. There is a sense of calm when you know how and why you are feeling or not feeling a certain way.


A chiropractor is someone who cares and is looking out for you! A chiropractor isn’t looking for a quick fix; they look for the root of the problem and the safest most efficient way to insure you are functioning at your potential. A chiropractor has your best interest in mind all the time.


If you have been curious as to who and what a chiropractor is I hope this article helps. I wish you all the best with your journeys.

Wellness Tip
Foot health
Many foot problems result from poorly fitted shoes. A few buying tips: Try shopping for shoes in the middle of the day, as feet tend to swell most at this time. Strive for about a 1/2 inch of space between the end of the foot and the tip of the shoe. Wear the type of socks or stockings that will be worn with the shoes. And finally, consider having both feet measured. Feet can vary in size.

Celtic Ginger and Garlic Soup
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: This soup is especially soothing when tired, stressed or sick with cold flu and is very anti-fungal. This soup uses garlic and garlic. Garlic has long been touted as a health booster and now new research is beginning to unlock the secrets of the odoriferous bulb. “Even the Greeks would feed garlic to their athletes before they competed in the Olympic games.” Many home chefs mistakenly cook garlic immediately after crushing or chopping it, added Dr. Kraus. To maximize the health benefits, you should crush the garlic at room temperature and allow it to sit for about 15 minutes. That triggers an enzyme reaction that boosts the healthy compounds in garlic.

Ginger is an aromatic, pungent and spicy, ginger adds a special flavor and zest to Asian stir fries and many fruit and vegetable dishes. Fresh ginger root is available year round in the produce section of your local market. Ginger is the underground rhizome of the ginger plant with a firm, striated texture. The flesh of the ginger rhizome can be yellow, white or red in color, depending upon the variety. It is covered with a brownish skin that may either be thick or thin, depending upon whether the plant was harvested when it was mature or young. In herbal medicine, ginger is regarded as an excellent carminative (a substance which promotes the elimination of intestinal gas) and intestinal spasmolytic (a substance which relaxes and soothes the intestinal tract). Modern scientific research has revealed that ginger possesses numerous therapeutic properties including antioxidant effects, an ability to inhibit the formation of inflammatory compounds, and direct anti-inflammatory effects.
