Chiropractic is a healing art, science and philosophy, discovered over a century ago that places emphasis on maintaining the structural integrity of the spine to support proper functioning of the nervous system. Your nervous system controls all the functions of your body. If the bones along your spine and vertebral column are stressed or subluxated (not in alignment) the communication between your brain and body is affected. Chiropractors locate and correct any of these “subluxations” causing nerve interference, so that your body can function optimally.
The spine houses the “information super highway” of your spinal cord. Pairs of nerve roots branch off from between each spinal joint. These nerves link your brain with every cell and tissue in your body. These delicate nerves are vulnerable because they are in such close proximity to the moving bones of the spine. A loss of proper motion or position of spinal bones can compromise this vital communication. Chiropractors can locate and correct these problems, reducing their effect on the nervous system.
