What is Chiropractic?
- Chiropractic is a health care profession that addresses disorders of muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems and their effects on the general health. Therefore, chiropractic is a healthcare profession that focuses on correcting and restoring the proper relationship between structure, which consists of your muscular and skeletal systems, and function, which consists of your nervous system
- Chiropractic is safe and beneficial for all ages - newborns to centenarians and beyond
- Doctors of Chiropractic (DC) practice a hands-on, holistic approach to health and includes physical, neurological, chiropractic examinations, diagnosis, and treatment. Following the examination the chiropractor identifies the cause of your problem, usually a subluxation, and delivers a chiropractic adjustment to correct the problem
- A subluxation (sub'-luk-say'-shun) is a misaligned spinal bone or other joint bone in the body which causes compression, tension, irritation, and if left untreated, damage of the Nervous System (brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves). The nervous system controls all functions of the human body. In order to function efficiently and maintain a healthy lifestyle the information from the brain to all other parts of the body and vice versa must travel unobstructed. Chiropractic care removes the subluxation and allows the body to heal and to achieve maximum health
