Chiropractic care is about much more than simply relieving back and neck pain. Insuring that your spine and your entire nervous system operates properly are the primary functions of a chiropractor.
Your spine, which consists of 24 vertebrae, serves both to support your musculoskeletal system and to protect your nervous system (the spinal cord, including the spinal nerves).
In fact, your nervous system controls every aspect of your body. Your brain sends information down your spinal cord and out your spinal nerves to every organ, system and appendage to your body.
Therefore, it only makes sense that it is necessary to have your spine in proper alignment in order for your nervous system to function optimally, have full range of motion and for you to be as healthy and pain free as possible.
Subluxations are misalignments on your vertebrae which put pressure on your nervous system and can limit your normal spinal motion and function.Most people are not aware that the cause of their condition may be due to an imbalance in their musculoskeletal and nervous system.
Adjustments or Mobilization consists of the use of gentle directional force to move stuck or subluxated (misaligned) vertebrae or joints back to their normal position, relieving pressure on the nerve and allowing the body to receive the energy and signals needed to heal itself.
Chiropractic care emphasizes on diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous system, thereby contributing to your overall health and wellbeing.
