Chiropractic works by removing imbalances both structural and postural, keeping your spine properly aligned and moving thereby ensuring proper function of your nervous system which is located inside and inbetween the spinal vertebrae/bones. The nervous system is a vast network of nerves that send signals from your brain, down your spinal cord to all the other networks of nerves throughout the body that make your body work in full function. These networks of nerves must be allowed to flow freely without any interruption/irritation to the nerve otherwise when your spine alignment is misaligned due to physical trauma, chemical toxins or emotional stress, the nerves exiting your spine become irritated and compromised thus promoting a spinal degeneration process. Chiropractors have the ability and skill to remove these interruptions/irritations or misalignments, also known as subluxations and allow the body to perform as it was meant to, healthy and well without pain or dysfunction.
If you've ever been in a car accident, played a sport, fell down or just bumped into something too hard, it's very possible that you are not functioning at your best due to a misalignment/subluxation. While there are many potential mechanical or structural causes for a misalignment/subluxation, there are also chemical reasons. For instance, if you smoke or drink excessively or even just have a poor diet, the chemical issues in your body can eventually cause underlying conditions and disease to appear.
Our approach to better health is by helping patients maintain a healthy spine through Chiropractic care, educating patients about proper spinal care, nutrition and exercise. The more our patients focus on these aspects of health, the better they feel and the closer they are to their natural state of well-being. Since the primary focus of your care is an improved nervous system function, Chiropractic can have a positive effect on many health conditions not normally thought of as "back" problems.
