Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord and all the nerves of the body. Everything that happens inside you starts as a nerve signal inside the brain. All the information and power to run a healthy, pain-free body comes down from the brain through the spinal cord, over spinal nerves to every organ, tissue and cell. These cells, tissues and organs send messages back, forming a two-way communication or flow that is the essence of life and health.
Because of the way your spine is designed, improper motion or position of the spinal bones can irritate or choke delicate nerves -- interfering with the function of the tissues they control. Doctors call this subluxation.
When vertebrae go out of their normal position and put pressure on nerves and cause subluxations, that communication or "life flow" is distorted, damaged or cut off. Chiropractic is a natural method of health care based on maintaining a healthy spine and nervous system. The stress of modern day life, poor diet, inadequate exercise, too much sitting and accidents have led to many spinal disorders.
How Does Chiropractic Work?
Chiropractic works by restoring your own inborn ability to be healthy. When under the proper control of your nervous system, all the cells, tissues and organs of your body are designed to resist disease and ill health.
Doctors of Chiropractic are specialists in the detection, reduction and prevention of nervous system interferences.
The Chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and help remove interferences to your natural state of being healthy. With improved spinal function, there is often improved nervous system function. Your chiropractic doctor can help remove interferences that may be impairing normal health.
