Chiropractic means “treatment by hand”. It is an art, science and philosophy of how spinal function and the nervous system affect one’s overall health and well being.
Chiropractors remove subluxation allowing your own body’s innate intelligence the ability to, heal, restore vitality, resist disease and function at an optimal level.
The central nervous system is composed of the brain and the spinal cord. The spinal cord begins at the brain and passes through the spinal column. The spinal column is made up of segments called vertebrae. The primary purpose of spinal column is to protect the spinal cord. Nerves exit through the openings between the vertebrae and send branches out to innervate different parts of the body; such as organs, muscles and skin. The loss of normal motion or position of the vertebral segment s, called “subluxation,” causes abnormal pressure on the spinal cord, nerves, discs, and the surrounding soft tissues. This condition may or may not be painful, but will affect the overall function of the body.
