Chiropractic is a system of health care based upon helping to eliminate pain and improve body function by working to remove irritation to the nerves in the body caused by a subluxation.
Subluxations can occur in numerous ways. Trauma, sports injuries, falls, poor posture, repetitive movements and toxins in our environment are just some of the ways to adversely affect our bodies. Whenever a subluxation occurs the body tries to stop further injury by tightening the muscles around it. Sometimes pain can occur immediately with a subluxation, more often than not, health problems occur slowly over time.
A minor misalignment of the bones of the spine, which causes nerve interference and a loss of function. Nerves that are pinched due to spinal misalignments, can cause undetected nerve damage. This creates pain, inflammation and decreased function. Since nerves control every cell, tissue, and organ in your entire body, this can create symptomatic problems.
