Chiropractic Care is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.
Chiropractic care is one of the best ways to keep your spine healthy and your nervous system functioning at its optimum level. Our main goal is to help people of all ages attain a state of optimal physical health and well being through correction of vertebral subluxations. In simple terms, a vertebral subluxation is when one or more of the bones of your spine (vertebrae) move out of position. The vertebral subluxation complex occurs when this misalignment or malposition of the spinal vertebrae causes
1) decreased motion in the joint
2) spinal nerve irritation
3) muscle tension or spasm
4) swelling or inflammation in the surrounding soft tissues, and
5) changes in blood flow to the effected area.
Chiropractic adjustments correct the vertebral misalignments, and thereby help alleviate all of the components of the subluxation complex. Thus the body can function at its full potential!
