Chiropractic is a natural therapy. It’s a therapy that works with the body’s natural ability to heal and regulate itself without the use of drugs or surgery. It is a fast growing form of complementary and alternative healthcare and has grown to become one the biggest in the recent times.
Chiropractic focuses on the health and function of the nervous system through the window of the spine. When a spine is in proper alignment and can move freely, it allows the messages that the brain sends through our spinal cord to be expressed at its optimal. These messages are essential in how our brain responds to our ever changing lives to ensure the daily running of our normal body functions.
Picture a foundation to a house. Your nervous system and spine is the foundation for how our bodies work. When the spine is in proper alignment it allows these essential messages to run our bodies and to function at its peak. However, like a foundation of a house, if it is not strong or has misalignments, it can’t support the function of the nerves and in turn the body develops ill effects. Through traumas, past injuries and daily stresses, the joints of our spine can lose its proper alignment and in turn affect how the messages from the brain gets sent to our muscles, organs and tissues. We call these SUBLUXATIONS.
Injury, pain, inflammation and improper nerve function are by products of these SUBLUXATIONS.
A Chiropractor is an expert in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of SUBLUXATIONS. Through gentle and specific adjustments to the spine, we restore proper joint alignment and restore function back the spine. This allows the nervous system to now function at its peak to allow us to function at our peak.
