What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is based on the scientific premise that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism, with these functions being controlled by the brain, spinal cord and all the nerves of the body.
Chiropractic looks at the relationship between your body’s structure, being primarily the spine and the pelvis, and your body’s function, coordinated by the nervous system. Nurturing this relationship can affect the preservation and restoration of your health. Basically, good health depends, in part, on a normally functioning nervous system.
Let’s look at how this works. 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. However, interferences to the nervous system can disrupt the transmission of controlling nerve impulses. For example, a common interference to the nervous system is the twenty-four moving bones of the spinal column. A loss of normal motion or position of these bones can irritate or impair the function of the nervous system, therefore affecting your body’s ability to function well. This is why we believe a healthy spine = a healthy life!
Here’s where Chiropractors come in! Chiropractors aim to improve your nervous system primarily through chiropractic adjustments, focusing on the spine, skull and pelvis, to help remove any interference that may be impairing your health!
Healthy Spine = Healthy Life!
