As chiropractors, our job is to focus on the overall health of your entire body. We do this by using a completely natural, drug-free, and surgery-free approach. To be specific, chiropractic is defined as, "the diagnosis and manipulative treatment of misalignments of the joints, especially those of the spinal column, which are held to cause other disorders by affecting the nerves, muscles, and organs."
Basically, chiropractors assess the health of your spine and nervous system by checking for any kind of misalignment in the spine, or what is also known as a subluxation. What often happens to people, whether due to a bad fall, car accident, sports injury, desk job, or a number of other causes, is their bones can shift out of proper alignment, which in turn puts damaging pressure on the nerves. This is critical because every organ/function in your body is controlled by your brain. Your brain tells each organ in your body how to function by communicating through the spinal cord and nerves. When there is a blockage affecting communication from the brain, health problems can occur.
Take a look at the image below. This shows you which nerves go to each part of the body and how nerve interferences can affect the health of those particular regions.
What we do is first locate exactly where you have subluxations in your body. Then, we address the issue by administering a very specific adjustment to the appropriate region of your spine. This helps your body reestablish it’s natural balance and alignment. An adjustment is a precise amount of manual force, performed by a chiropractor, to a specific part of the spine that will work to correct the subluxation. Adjustments are natural and non-invasive. In fact, many people often find adjustments to be very relieving and therapeutic.
As you can see in the graphic below, the slightest amount of misalignment and displacement of the spine can have very damaging effects on the nerves and the rest of the body.
It's important to have your spinal health checked sooner than later. The longer you prolong taking care of any kind of misalignment, the harder it is to reverse the damage. Even if you're not experiencing pain, we still recommend chiropractic, because often times it can take years for a misalignment to develop and provoke pain. Plus, chiropractic is simply a great, natural drug-free approach to maintaining health and wellness for your body.
