What Is Chiropractic?
The word “chiropractic” means “done by hand.” Chiropractic has a single focus and that is to remove vertebral subluxations.
A subluxation is a vertebra that has shifted from its proper position causing interference within the nervous system.Your brain generates nerve impulses to control and regulate your entire body. These nerve impulses are sent down the spinal cord to every organ, tissue, and cell of your body. Nerve impulses are then sent back up to the brain so that your brain knows that everything is working correctly.
When a vertebra shifts from its proper position, it interrupts the flow of information in the nervous system, causing a breakdown in communication between your brain and the rest of your body. This vertebral shift is called a subluxation.
Subluxations can occur suddenly, as seen with an accident, or occur slowly over time. Subluxations cause abnormal function of the surrounding joints and tissues. Sometimes you will feel symptoms of pain or discomfort resulting from a subluxation, but this is not always the case. Subluxations don’t always cause immediate symptoms, they often go unnoticed for an extended period of time. If left unresolved, the abnormal function caused by subluxations makes you more susceptible to chronic health problems which can ultimately lead to dis-ease of the nervous system.
To put the safety pin back together again, chiropractors use their knowledge of the anatomy of the human body to locate and correct subluxations. Chiropractors use spinal adjustments to remove subluxations to restore joint function and support the nervous system. A chiropractic adjustment is a very safe, specific, controlled force applied to a joint to restore proper mobility and function. This allows your nervous system to function freely with ease.
We’re passionate about chiropractic care and the powerful effect it has on the body and the way it functions. Our healthcare system today is broken and has conditioned the public to mask symptoms with pain meds and other invasive treatments. That’s not us!
