As a Chiropractor in San Diego I realized the truth is there is more to health care than drugs and surgery! A great deal more!

San Diego Chiropractor Dr. Robert Walcher is asked if chiropractors are real doctors so often he decided to address the question in his latest blog titled ‘Are Chiropractors Doctors,” available on his Personalized Chiropractic website. Dr. Robert Walcher clears one of the most misunderstood questions in his profession by enlightening his patients to what a chiropractor really does. Dr. Walcher was asked to explain, why there is still a doubtful misconception regarding Doctors of Chiropractic? “This is due, in part, to the public's narrow and limited view of medical treatment - being solely of administering prescription drugs and performing surgery. It's unfortunate that the majority of people believe this is all there is to health care. As a chiropractor in San Diego I realized the truth is there is more to health care than drugs and surgery! A great deal more,” states Dr. Walcher, who happens to be one of San Diego's top Children's Chiropractors along with his thriving adult practice.

So, are Chiropractors real doctors? Dr. Walcher explains further, “the difference between the education of an MD and that of a chiropractor lies in the fact that an MD trains in pharmacology and surgical procedures and a chiropractor trains in the care of the spine. You can read more on Dr. Walcher’s Are Chiropractors Real Doctors blog, but in essence the spine is designed to protect the nerves in the body. From here the nerves go out to every muscle, organ, and tissue in the entire body. The healthier the nerves meaning the freer they are to function correctly, the healthier the entire body will be.

When asked how does Chiropractic works to find the root of the problem and fix it, Dr. Walcher said “I like to explain it this way: the spine is similar to a circuit breaker box in the body. Simply put, chiropractors fix the switch. Since the spine affects every nerve in the body, the key is to eliminate the subluxations in the spine. (A subluxation is a slight dislocation or biomechanical malfunctioning of the vertebrae.) This then allows the spine and the nerves to function properly.” For people looking for a chiropractor in San Diego and are unsure if a chiropractor is a real doctor, Dr. Walcher may be just the doctor that you want to visit. “At Personalized Chiropractic our goal is not to simply alleviate the symptom and send the practice member on their way. Our goal is to educate our patients on the importance of keeping all parts of the body in tip-top working order. All the time, every day,” says Dr. Robert Walcher.
