What is Chiropractic?

Our bodies are programmed to be healthy! Chiropractic care helps restore optimum function. Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. The brain, spinal cord and all the nerves of the body control these important functions. The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spinal column protect the vulnerable communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots.

If the nervous system is impaired, it can cause malfunction of the tissues and organs throughout the body. Doctors call this the “Vertebral Subluxation Complex,” which, when broken down is defined as “Vertebrae” — the individual bones of the spine, “Subluxation” — less than a total dislocation and “Complex”– consisting of more than one part. A chiropractic doctor’s job is to locate and correct the subluxation complex and educate the patient on how to maintain the correction.
