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.

Whole-Wheat Carrot Cake
Category: Desserts
Description: Carrot cake is a perennial favorite, but it is often loaded with vegetable oil and laden with a cream cheese frosting. Our version is healthier, using a small amount of olive oil, a full cup of honey for moistness and flavor, and a combination of whole wheat pastry and unbleached flours. The crunchy walnuts even add a bit of omega-3 fats to this sweet treat. With a cup of hot green tea, this cake will make you forget about cream cheese frosting. Enjoy!
