What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is the largest health care profession which addresses the muscle and skeletal bone system (structure) of the body. Structural
imbalances in the body can range from twisting an ankle or arthritis, to compromise of nerve signals which exit and enter the spinal column on their way to the brain. Since nerves travel to all the tissues, organs and cells and control much of the body's function, compromised nerve signals can cause a wide range of health problems.

Why is your nervous system the key to your feeling well?

Your nervous system includes your brain, spinal cord and the network of peripheral nerves that exit and enter your spine. Your body's 100 trillion cells, biochemical reactions, organs, glands and tissues are under the control of your nervous system and is responsible for maintaining balance.  Chiropractic is intimately involved in keeping your nervous system communicating at its best.

Why is your spine the lifeline to the rest of your body?

The brain is housed within the skull. Similarly the spinal cord is housed within the spine, which itself is made up of 24 movable bony structures known as vertebrae. Openings within these vertebrae exit the peripheral nerves that carry the signals from your brain to all the various parts of your body.

What is a vertebral subluxation and how does it affect your feeling of wellness?

Restricted motion or misalignments of the vertebral structures, known in chiropractic as a vertebral subluxation, will intefer with the nerve signals which are conveying information between the brain and the rest of the body. Any interference of these nerve signals will compromise the normal function of the body parts served by these nerve signals.

What may be causing a vertebral subluxation?

Vertebral subluxations may be caused by any physical, nutritional, emotional or electromagnetic stress. Some examples of these stress factors are:  Slips or falls, prior car accidents, Poor diet, Poor posture. Medications, and Intense emotional turmoil.
