Family and friends who don’t know much about chiropractic often ask us what it’s all about. Since it’s been coming up a lot recently, we thought we would share it with everyone!
The foundation of chiropractic is built on the idea that the people are intelligent beings, and when placed in the right environment, they can heal from the inside out. We also understand that the nervous system controls every function in your body. The nervous system is transmitted from the brain to the rest of the body by the spinal cord and the nerves that branch off of it. Each nerve exits the spine at a certain level and supplies a specific organ or performs a specific function. When a bone in the spine becomes misaligned it can put pressure on the nerve causing it to not function properly. After time, these malfunctioning nerves can lead to symptoms in the organs that they supply.
Chiropractors are the only health professionals properly trained to correct the misaligned bones in the spine, to take pressure off of the nerves so that they can function at 100%.
