What is Chiropractic?

chiropractic_img77-300x238Chiropractic is a clinical science, which is concerned with the human structural and disease processes as they relate to the spine, muscular-skeletal and neurological systems. Chiropractic is the 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.

How does Chiropractic stop pain?

The nervous system controls and energizes, rebuilds and repairs all other systems of the body. The nerves provide a pathway to and from the brain. The nerves leave the spinal cord through openings in the spinal bones or vertebrae. When vertebrae become misaligned they interfere with normal nerve function. The misalignment is called a subluxation. The subluxation causes nerve dysfunction or “Pinches Nerves.” Pinches nerves cause pain, discomfort, dysfunction in our bodies. The objective of chiropractic care is to locate and remove the misalignment or subluxation. The primary chiropractic treatment method is to manipulate or adjust specific spinal joints to restore spinal motion and nerve function. This will decrease or eliminate pain and promote healing. Skilled manipulation restores mobility in the joints by applying controlled force to change the stress on damaged tissues.
