Today’s chiropractic doctor looks for the underlying nervous system involvement that can be the cause of many health problems. Chiropractic works by restoring your own innate ability to be healthy. When under the proper control of your nervous system, all cells, tissues, and organs of your body are designed to resist disease and illness. The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and help remove all interference to your natural state of being healthy. The 24 moving (vertebrae) bones of the spinal column often become misaligned and interfere with the correct motion of the involved segments. A loss of normal motion or position of the vertebrae can irritate or impair nervous system function.
This interference can disrupt the transmission of controlling nerve impulses. Improved spinal function improves nervous system function. Your chiropractic doctor can help remove interference that may be impairing normal health. Since the primary focus of your care is improved nervous system function, chiropractic can have a positive effect on many health conditions not normally thought of as “back” problems
