What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a natural and holistic form of health care
that focuses on correcting the cause of physical problems, rather than just
treating the symptoms. Chiropractic is based on a simple but powerful premise.
With a normally functioning spine and healthy nerve system, your body is better
able to heal itself.
Chiropractic works by restoring your body's innate (in-born)
ability to be healthy. When under the proper control of your nervous system,
all the cells, tissues, and organs of your body are designed to resist disease
and ill health. The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and
remove interferences to your nervous system caused by vertebral subluxations (spinal misalignment).
big deal about vertebral subluxations?
The impact vertebral subluxations have on our health cause
much more damage than symptoms of back and neck pain. They interfere with the ability of the body to function in
many ways, sometimes manifesting as disease. Because nerve interference
can be present without any obvious signs or symptoms it can be virtually
impossible for someone to know that their health is being compromised. This is why
it is so important to have regular chiropractic check ups.
