What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic is based on the body being a self-sustaining, self-healing, and self-developing mechanism. These important functions are controlled by your brain, spinal cord, and nerves. When the nervous system is impaired through illness, injury or stress it can cause tissues and organs throughout the body to function improperly. This degenerative chain reaction is called the vertebral subluxation complex. When the nervous system is not functioning at its peak, the performance of the human body is diminished. This leaves the body more susceptible to musculoskeletal pain, chronic illness and disease.
In Chiropractic, we treat the source of the problem that is causing the pain or illness. In some instances, drugs and other prescriptions are band-aids treating the symptoms and not treating the actual problem that is causing the symptoms. With Chiropractic's hands-on, drug free health care approach, millions have found a healthier life through diet, exercise and maintaining proper spinal function.
Chiropractic is perceived to solely treat back and neck pain, This is a small piece of the profession can handle and treat successfully. Chiropractors not only treat musculoskeletal problems such as back and joint pain but are successfully treating problems and conditions that are often prescribed medications to "symptomatically" treat. Some of these include headaches, allergies, insomnia, fibromyalgia, digestive problems and many more.
Nerves control everything in your body! That is the science and the way God created the body to work.
