What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a healing science – and art – that focuses on the function and integrity of the nervous system, which is central to a healthy body and spine. Because the nervous system controls every cell, tissue and organ in the body and allows us to adapt to the world around us, ensuring that it is functioning well, is essential to overall health. Chiropractors are trained to find and correct areas of the spine and nervous system that are stressed or distorted using what are called “adjustments”. Over time, chiropractic adjustments help your body return to a state of improved health and more optimum function.
Many people assume that chiropractic care is only for the treatment of back pain or other specific physical or joint complaints. However, many of our patients who come in with a specific complaint also experience other positive effects from chiropractic care such as better sleep, reduced stress and increased immune function. Whether you’re a week old or nearing your 100th birthday, chiropractic care can help you to enjoy improved health and vitality.
