chiropracticChiropractic is a holistic approach to overall health that allows the body to heal itself of illness, injury, as well as environmental and emotional stress.

Chiropractic works by affecting corrections of the nervous system (NS). The NS is composed of three components:

  • Central Nervous System-brain and spine
  • Peripheral Nervous System-connects the central NS to the rest of the body
  • Autonomic Nervous System-controls functions we don't consciously control

The nervous system can be greatly and positively affected by physically, chemically, thermally or emotionally altering the vertebra of the spinal column and the surrounding musculature of the musculoskeletal system.

Nerves attached to various organs and tissues exit from the spinal cord at varying points along the vertebral column. If there are impingements or stresses in the spinal column and/or connecting muscles, nerve function is impeded and corresponding organs and tissues are adversely affected. Chiropractors treat these vertebral and muscular impingements by manipulating/altering the structure. Once these impingements are removed, the body's inherent ability to heal itself is re-enabled.

Although the basic focus of chiropractic care is to treat impingements (subluxations) upon the nerves, many chiropractors integrate other areas of therapy to help promote and maintain the results of their chiropractic adjustments.

Chiropractic care is appropriate for people of all ages and of all levels of health, from infant to geriatric ages. People suffering from back and/or neck pain, or who are experiencing high levels of physical and/or emotional stress in their lives are prime candidates.
