Chiropractic: According to The Association of Chiropractic Colleges, “Chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health”.
A Chiropractor’s goal is to increase your function and decrease any pain you experience by ensuring your muscles are flexible, your joints are mobile, and nerve flow is optimized.
Aches and pains are signs that your body isn’t working right. Your brain, spinal cord and all your nerves control how your body works. Physical, chemical or emotional stresses produce a defensive posture. Muscles contract, locking spinal joints that pinch or irritate nearby nerves. Lack of nervous system integrity sets the stage for disease and ill health. A thorough examination helps Chiropractors find these fixations (subluxations). Applying a precise force to fixated or stuck spinal joints helps the body right itself. Health usually returns as repeated visits restore nervous system integrity. That’s why Chiropractic care has helped millions get well and stay well.
