What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic is a health care discipline that believes the natural healing power of our bodies can be restored to its optimal state without surgery or medication. The practice focuses on how structure (primarily the spine) and function are related, as well as their effect on overall wellness.
How Chiropractic Care Works
I’m sure you are wondering how the same chiropractic treatment can also improve my health. The answer lies in understanding how your spine and nervous system work together to control all living cells, tissues, and organs.
I’ll explain: Your spinal column protects your brain (the master controller of all cellular functions) which is surrounded by nerve roots that travel through it; essentially making up part of our nervous system!
Since the spinal column is so intimately related to our nervous system, many biomechanical and structural problems in this area can irritate parts of it. These conditions are often brought on by tissue injuries or even direct mechanical pressure which negatively affect how the nerves work, leading to different ailments depending on what cells they’re affecting and their severity.
What Our Chiropractors Do
A chiropractor is someone who uses a number of unique and highly refined skills, including the ability to detect vertebral subluxations which are complex changes that compromise neural integrity.
A chiropractor checks for vertebral subluxations, which are small movements of the spine or joints that can cause problems in different parts of your body. If an abnormality is detected like a misalignment, fixation, or other problem with the patient’s back then they apply gentle force to fix it and help restore function.
