What is Chiropractic
Chiropractic is based on a field within the health sciences. For many years scientists have been researching human biology and neurology and have proven that the human body is a self-healing, self-regulating organism. Our nervous system, which consists of our brain, spinal cord and interconnecting nerves, controls the many millions of functions that our body performs on a daily basis.
Signals are relayed between our brain and nerves to ensure that our body is functioning correctly. The bones of the spine, called the vertebral bodies, protect the vulnerable pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. Impairment of these nerves or misalignments of the vertebral bodies can interfere with the vital nerve exchange relay that exists and cause irritation of the nerves which can lead to malfunction of tissues and organs. This is what chiropractors refer to as a subluxation complex.
Chiropractic restores your innate ability to heal and maintain a healthy body. When your body is functioning correctly it can resist disease, ill health, and pain. Chiropractic locates the interferences within your body and safely and effectively removes them to assist proper communications throughout your body. Whether a baby, child, adolescent or adult Chiropractic care can provide a safe and gentle approach to restoring optimum health. Improving proper spinal biomechanics through Chiropractic care can have positive effects on many health conditions not normally thought of as Chiropractic concerns. These include but are not limited to:
Our primary focus, as Chiropractors, is to improve your nervous system function and overall well-being.
