How Chiropractic Helps You:
Chiropractic is about helping you live healthier, fuller, and more productively. Chiropractic treatment focuses on your nervous system and uses painless manual adjustments to the vertebral column to improve the performance of the nervous system.
The nervous system includes your brain, spinal cord, the spinal nerves that exit your vertebral column through openings on the side of each vertebra, and all of the peripheral nerves that branch off to serve your organs, tissues, blood vessels and muscles.
Information from your environment, both external and internal, travels through your spine to reach your brain. In the same manner, information processed and decisions made in your brain are transmitted through your spine to your limbs and organs.
Chiropractic adjustments are intended to remove slight vertebral misalignments called subluxations that disrupt and distort the flow of energy through the spine. Chiropractors locate these subluxations and then correct them to restore the normal flow of nerve energy to help you feel healthier and more comfortable.The philosophy of chiropractic maintains that health comes from within the body, not from the outside.
