Chiropractic: How Does it Really Work?

Chiropractor Adjustment of Woman in White Shirt, ImageChiropractic works by restoring your body’s ability to heal itself. Chiropractic is based on the scientific law that your body is a self-regulating and self-healing organism.  When under the proper control of your nervous system, all of the cells, tissues, and organs of your body are made to resist illness and disease.

While your brain is protected by the skull, your spinal cord is somewhat less protected by 24 moving vertebrae. When these bones lose their normal position they can choke off or irritate your spinal cord and surrounding nerves. This disrupts the function of your tissues or organs controlled by these nerves, leading to dis-ease and pain. The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and remove interferences to your natural state of health.

Chiropractors have tremendous success treating back pain, neck pain, and headaches.  However, because of the spinal bones and nerves being restored to their proper function, chiropractic can have a positive effect on many other health conditions not typically associated with chiropractic.

Some common conditions we see in our clinic that are not typically associated with chiropractic and that have had successful outcomes with chiropractic care are Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Hormone Imbalances, Emotional Issues, and Digestive Problems.

Chiropractic Care is key in restoring health and wellness to your body…less pain, more ability to move, and your nervous system functioning well, allowing your body to heal!
