The majority of your nervous system lies inside of your spine. One of the most important the jobs your spine has is to protect the nervous system. Your nervous system is an extensive network that sends messages from your brain to virtually every cell that makes up your body. It coordinates and controls all the organs, structures, systems and functions of your body. When your spine is out of alignment this stops the nervous system from working properly. And when your nervous system can’t work properly your body cannot effectively send and receive important messages telling it that something is wrong. This inhibits your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Chiropractic care is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct these misalignments and restore proper function to the nervous system, helping your body to heal naturally. By apply precise force to a specific part of the spinal segment, you can correct the misalignment, allowing the nervous system to work as intended so you can maintain optimal health.
Chiropractic care focuses on maintaining your health to help your body prevent and naturally heal from disease, instead of just treating the symptoms.
The main focus of a chiropractor is to locate those misaligned areas of the spine/body that are causing problems and remove the interference. We use specialized equipment to detect misalignments and in order to correct them. Once the interference is removed, the spine can return to a balanced and unstressed position.
