What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a health care discipline based on the scientific premise that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism and that good health depends, in part, upon a normally functioning nervous system.
Chiropractors know that a properly functioning spine decreases stress to the nervous system and allows the body to function at its best.
Chiropractors work with the joints and soft tissues of the spine that protect the communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. When the bones of the spine lose their normal motion or position, (known as a Vertebral Subluxation), they can stretch or irritate the nerves which in turn may cause pain and disrupt the function of the tissues or organs these nerves control.
Chiropractic works by helping to restore your own inborn ability to be healthy. When under the proper control of your nervous system, all the cells, tissue, and organs of your body are designed to function well and resist disease and ill health.
The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate subluxations and gently restore correct function to the spine which in turn reduces interference with your natural state of optimal health.
