Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline that focuses on the central nervous system as being the key to healing and maintaining wellness.
The body has an innate recuperative power which allows for natural and efficient healing. Some mechanical problems can interfere with the nervous system preventing healing from occurring as it should. The practice of chiropractic targets the relationship between structure (the spine) and bodily function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship may be effecting your health.
Chiropractors identify and correct the cause of health challenges which arise when misalignments of the vertebrae (the small bones that make up the spine) disrupt neurological communications between your brain and the cells, tissues, and organs of the body.
Chiropractors correct these misalignments by gently adjusting the position of the vertebrae of the spine, reducing or eliminating nervous system interference thus allowing your body to properly self-regulate, adapt and heal.
