What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is the branch of healthcare that deals specifically with the nervous system,  which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves in the body. With a normally functioning nervous system and a healthy lifestyle, your body is able to function optimally and heal itself naturally.

The spinal cord is protected by the spinal column, which is comprised of 26 bones (vertebra) that are moveable. When these bones become misaligned–what we refer to as subluxation–there is interference in the transmission of nerve impulses from the brain to the rest of the body. This interference may be perceived as pain, but most often a patient will be unaware of this condition until less obvious and often more ominous symptoms present themselves. Frequently, pain is the end symptom of a long chain of nervous system interference that goes undetected and untreated. A body under this kind of stress simply cannot function at 100 percent.

Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct these subluxations and restore proper function to the nervous system.  Chiropractic doesn't use drugs or surgery. Rather, a chiropractic spinal adjustment–the application of a precise force to a specific part of the spinal segment­–corrects the misalignment, permitting normal nerve transmission and restoring optimal tone, position, and flexibility. A chiropractor is the only health care provider trained to detect and correct subluxations.

By finding and reducing stress and interference to the nervous system, chiropractors allow people to experience greater function, health and overall quality of life.
