What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic care is a natural approach to health care. It uses adjustments to correct misalignments of the joints of the body to restore proper function to the nervous system, helping your body heal naturally. Every function of your body is controlled by your nervous system. The bones of your spine, called vertebrae, provide protection for your spinal cord and nerves which leave the spinal column though openings between the vertebrae. When the vertebrae become misaligned, they can interfere with the functioning of the nerves. Disruption of the messages flowing in the nerves in turn interferes with the functioning of the organs and tissues that they supply. This misalignment is called a vertebral subluxation, by correcting the vertebral subluxation Chiropractors remove the interference to the nervous system and allow the body to function better.
