Chiropractic is based on the scientific law that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. The nervous system controls and coordinates this function in the body as well as the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body. While the brain is protected by the skull, the spinal cord is somewhat less protected by 24 moving vertebrae. When these bones lose their normal position or become misaligned, they can choke off or irritate the spinal cord and surrounding nerves. This disrupts the function of the tissues or organs controlled by these nerves leading to dis-ease. A chiropractor locates these areas of spinal malfunction and remove interferences that may be disrupting a state of optimum health.
Chiropractic works by restoring the body’s ability to heal itself. When under the proper control of your nervous system, all of the cells, tissues, and organs of the body are made to resist illness and disease. A chiropractor’s approach to better health is to locate and remove interferences to your natural state of health.
