What is Chiropractic ?
Chiropractic is the nation’s third largest primary health care profession, surpassed in numbers only by practitioners of medicine and dentistry. It is the largest natural healing art in the world.
Chiropractic recognizes that the human body has a natural capacity to be healthy. Chiropractic is a natural, preventive and non-invasive form of health care that attempts to return the body to its optimal state of function which allows the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.
The body is a self healing organism with the nervous system as the master control. All body functions depend on the electrical transmission of the nerves to coordinate all organs and systems in our bodies. Since an individual’s health is either directly or indirectly controlled by the nervous system, interference within this system impairs normal function and lowers resistance to disease.
Spinal mobility is vital to protect nerve function and restricted mobility can alter nerve function by placing pressure on the electrical transmission of the nerves. Chiropractic treatment is based upon restoring the proper electrical function of the nervous system.
Through chiropractic adjustments, nervous system interference due to abnormalities in the musculoskeletal relationships of the vertebrae (called subluxations) can be corrected. This allows the nervous system to function properly, enabling the body to self-regulate and self-heal through its own natural recuperative powers.
Chiropractors are highly skilled in the art of adjusting all the articulations of the body, thereby reducing or minimizing the effects of chronic or acute trauma and biomechanical instability. The adjustment is a gentle and specific maneuver which can be applied effectively and safely to people no matter their age
