Dr. Brad Fraum Chiropractor of Week at The Statehouse

Chiropractic is the largest, drugless healing art in the world. Through gentle, specific adjustments, millions have unleashed the healing power of the body.

Dr Fraum -The Chiropractor of the Week at SCCA 2020Dr. Brad Fraum was recently honored as The Chiropractor of The Week as The Official SCCA Statehouse Chiropractor. The South Carolina Chiropractic Association (SCCA) member doctor volunteers from around South Carolina. Each doctor volunteers to take time away from their practice to provide quality care to South Carolina legislators, their staff, and statehouse workers. This is an outreach effort of the SCCA to show firsthand the many benefits of chiropractic.

This program offers basic chiropractic services, and is not intended to replace a regular chiropractic care plan for conditions that require more extensive diagnosis and consistent treatment plans. Thank you for participating today and being a part of making this program a success!

Dr Fraum at the StatehouseThe profession of chiropractic as a distinct form of health care dates back to 1895. However, some of the earliest healers in the history of the world understood the relationship between health and the condition of the spine.

Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases.
Hippocrates – Known as the Father of Modern Medicine

Herodotus, a contemporary of Hippocrates, gained fame curing diseases by correcting spinal abnormalities through therapeutic exercises. If the patient was too weak to exercise, Herodotus would manipulate the patient’s spine. The philosopher Aristotle was critical of Herodotus’ tonic-free approach because, “he made old men young and thus prolonged their lives too greatly.”

The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
Thomas Edison

The public is entitled to one truly drug-free system of health care and doctors of chiropractic are fully trained and qualified to fill that role with proven clinical and cost effectiveness. For more than a century, the marketplace has sustained and supported chiropractic on the basis of its unique, drugless approach to health and healing. This is especially crucial at a time when our society at-large is recognizing the alarming complexities, costs and complications of a drug-based approach to treatment and the trend is strongly in the direction of a minimalist approach regarding drugs, and with good reason.

There is an INNATE intelligence within you that is absolutely incomprehensible.

At conception, one cell is sparked to life and begins to divide, becoming over 40 trillion cells and creating an entire human+being in just nine months.

That spark is the entrance of an electrical energy,a BEING within your human, the YOU within you.

And that inner light and potential did not abandon you at birth; it remains within you and is the very essence of life. 45 miles of nerves grow to connect every cell, tissue, and organ with the energy flowing within you.

This self-created and regulated, neuro-spinal system perceives, receives, & integrates your internal and external worlds.

In a perfect world, you have the space and time to live at a pace that is innately right for you. But at the hectic speed of life that you experience here in a city like Dallas, your ability to adapt can often be exceeded.

When overstressed, you can store your experiences within your body, stalling your own process of healing and resulting growth. You were Innately designed to Heal, Grow, & Thrive.

But you were not designed to live out of balance with your true nature and environment. Your neuro-spinal system communicates to you about internal balance, health, and changes needed through the language of symptoms.

True health cannot be defined merely as the presence or absence of symptoms; because the majority that we make are not life threatening, but full of vital information.

Chiropractic and its leaders have changed and evolved through the years, but the principles of this distinct healing method are still the same as they were 100 years ago. Essentially, the body is a self-healing organism. The nervous system controls and coordinates every organ and tissue. The relationship between the spine and the nervous system is a predictor for the state of health. Find the interference, correct it, and the body will always move back toward health.

Today, Chiropractic is licensed as a distinct healthcare profession in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia and dozens of other countries throughout the world. There are over 35 Chiropractic colleges throughout the world including the United Kingdom, France, Denmark, the United States, Canada, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.

Today’s recognition and acceptance of chiropractic is primarily based on the strength of the growing body of scientific research, which all started from B.J. Palmer’s commitment to make Chiropractic scientific. The positive results chiropractic care has given to millions of satisfied people continues to add credence to what one man started over 100 years ago. Chiropractic is now the world’s, largest, drugless, and fastest-growing healthcare profession.
