What is Chiropractic & What Do Chiropractors Do?
Chiropractic is based upon a few very simple ideas.
Your body is designed with an inborn ability to maintain healthy function. All of us have within our body the ability to make living tissue, heal cuts, adapt to environmental changes, produce the chemicals necessary for bodily functions, and to fight off bacteria and viruses. In summary, your body has the innate ability to enable you to lead a healthy productive life.
The nervous system is the master control system of your body. Every organ, gland and cell, in your body, depends upon messages carried to and from the brain via the spinal cord and nerves in order to function healthily.
Interference in the nervous system reduces your body’s ability to function in a healthy manner. Even slight damage to the delicate and vital spinal nerves can reduce your body’s ability to function to its fullest potential.
Slight misalignments of the bones of your spine (called vertebral subluxations) interfere with the ability of the nervous system to carry messages. These vital messages are necessary for the proper functioning of your body, and the attainment of optimal health.
Chiropractors correct vertebral subluxations. The objective of the chiropractor is to locate and correct vertebral subluxations to remove any interference to the optimal functioning of the nervous system. With a better operating nervous system, your body can heal itself more efficiently, be healthier and function closer to its potential.
