How does it work?
Chiropractic works because you are a self healing, self regulating organism controlled and regulated by the nervous system. Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down the spinal cord, and out to every cell, tissue, and organ in the body. Signals are sent back to the brain to confirm whether your body is functioning as it should.
Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine may interfere with this communication by irritating nearby nerves and interfering with they function.
Chiropractic is based on the idea of removing imbalances both structural and postural in an effort to allow our body to heal itself. For this to happen the network of nerves and signals from your brain, down your spinal cord, to the network of nerves must be allowed to flow freely without any interruption.
Chiropractors have the ability and skill to remove these interruptions or misalignments and allow the body to perform as it was meant to. Precise chiropractic adjustments are intended to improve mind/body communications. Health often returns with improved nervous system control of the body.
