Chiropractic is simple. It is natural. It honors the wisdom of your body and has helped millions enjoy relief and better health.
Every cell, organ and tissue of your body are controlled by your brain. Messages for life and function begin in the brain, travel down the spine and out the nerves to all parts of the body. Chiropractic produces results by helping the nervous system work the way it is designed to work. The goal of chiropractic care is to adjust your spine to allow these genetic/innate life impulses to flow freely along the spine and nerves so that maximum health can be enjoyed.
Because nerves go EVERYWHERE in your body and your BRAIN controls EVERY function of your body, a pinched nerve can can cause symptoms and problems ANYWHERE in your body. Chiropractic focuses on the integrity of your nerve network. Chiropractic adjustments (view the 'Activator Method" tab within this web site for an explanation of an adjustment) restore your body's ability to regulate and heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.
Health is the result of a properly communicating brain and nerve network. Ill health and symptoms are the result of interference between your brain and your body. The most common cause of interference is a "pinched nerve" caused by one of the 24 moveable vertebra being out of alignment. This interference is a pinched nerve (chiropractors call this a "subluxation".) Subluxations are caused by one of three categories: 1. Trauma, such as accidents, injuries, slips, falls, repetitive motion, etc..., 2. Emotions such as stress and tension, and 3. Chemical assault on our bodies. Fore example: bad water, junk food, unclean air, too many prescription drugs, illegal substances, excess alcohol, smoking and the chemicals in household products.
Although patients get relief from spinal adjustments, chiropractors don't actually treat pain. What we do is correct pinched nerves so the body can heal itself. As the body heals, replacing bad cells with good cells one at a time, the symptoms go away. This is because the damaged tissue has been replaced with healthy. Relief is the result of the tissue being healthy again and this takes time. It's the power that made your body that heals your body!
