Chiropractic is based on regulating proper biomechanics of the human body. Injury, stress or repetitive movement can cause structural abnormalities which in turn can cause nerve interference.
Your nervous system includes your brain, spinal cord and many nerves. The brain is protected by the skull and the spinal cord is housed within 24 moving bones of the spine. When the spinal bones or vertebra lose their normal position or motion, nervous system dysfunction can result. Chiropractic can help detect and correct nervous system dysfunction and improve health without covering up symptoms with drugs.
A chiropractic adjustment is the art of using specific force in a precise direction applied to a joint that is fixated (”locked-up”), or not moving properly. This adds motion to the joint, helping the bones gradually return to a more normal position and motion. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is improved spinal function, improved nervous system function and improved health.
