Chiropractic is a branch of healthcare that works to restore optimal function throughout the body. It does this by detecting and removing spinal misalignments that cause nerve interference in the body, referred to as subluxations.
The health of our spine is vital to our overall health and well-being as it is a key component to the central nervous system. The central nervous system, consisting of our brain, spinal cord and spinal nerves, control all human functioning. When an area of the spine is fixated or misaligned, it directly irritates the spinal nerves. When this interference occurs in the nervous system, it causes a disconnect in the brain – body connection, causing dysfunction to occur somewhere in the body.
When spinal misalignments or fixations are located, chiropractors treat them with spinal adjustments. This is a quick, specific manipulation of the joint that is out of position. As a result, this removes nerve interference, restores motion, decreases inflammation, and ultimately allows our body to function at a more optimal level.
By keeping our spines aligned through regular adjustments, the healthier and more at ease our bodies will be, improving mental clarity and overall well-being. Chiropractic is one of the safest and most gentle healthcare approaches and is meant for people of all ages.
