Unlocking the body’s natural healing
Chiropractic is natural health care without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractors take a holistic, hands-on approach to your health, working with your body’s own ability to heal itself.
The foundation of chiropractic is the spinal adjustment. During an adjustment, chiropractors use their hands or an instrument to deliver a precise, corrective adjustment into areas of the spine that are misaligned or lacking proper motion. In chiropractic, this spinal misalignment is called a “subluxation” (i.e. a misaligned vertebra that affects nerve function). After an adjustment is made, motion is restored to the spine and pressure is taken off the nerves. This reduces stress, tension, and allows allows the body to return to a more balanced state. With time and repetition, this reduces pain, symptoms, and increases overall function from within, as the spine stabilizes and nervous system function is restored. This is where healing begins.
