About Chiropractic

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic: from the Greek chiro-"hand-" + praktikos "concerned with action"

Chiropractic has become the largest drug-less health care profession in the world because it has helped millions of people recover from sickness, disease, disability and minimize the use of drugs and surgery in their lives!

What a Chiropractor Does

Today’s doctor of chiropractic locates and removes a severe form of spine and nerve stress, a condition that puts pressure on nerve, unbalances your body, lowers your resistance to the disease and weakens you: the vertebral subluxation complex.

Chiropractic and the Nervous System

nervous system

Billions of nerve fibers are bundled inside your spinal cord, an extension of your brain, which passes through your spinal column. Nerves branch off from your spinal cord through openings between the vertebrae to connect you to the world. Without them you couldn’t see, hear, touch, taste, smell, feel hot, cold, pleasure or pain.

Nerves Keep You Alive and Healthy

Nerve messages also help regulate your body’s activities such as breathing, heartbeats, digestion, excretion, changes in temperature, and all kinds of stress. If your nerves are "pinched" or interfered with, the flow of messages over them can be disrupted and your body can become "dis-eased" or weakened. Lowered resistance to disease, infection, colds, flue, allergies, ulcers, constipation, diarrhea, asthma, fever, headaches, seizures, bed-wetting, hearing, imbalance, visual disruption and many other health problems have been related to an unhealthy nervous system.

How Do Nerves Get Impinged or Pinched

Your skeletal system, especially your spinal column protects your spinal cord and other nerves. If your spinal bone are misaligned even slightly they may "pinch" or stretch the nerves they are supposed to protect. This in turn can affect other structures in the area including blood vessels, discs, ligaments, joints, muscles and tendons. This is referred to as a subluxation.

What Can Cause Subluxation?

Nearly any kind of stress can cause a subluxation: a fall or an accident, even a very mild one that happened years ago; a bad sleeping position; poor posture; emotional stress; poor nutrition or a combination of stress. A subluxation need not happen all at once. It could "set" in your body over timing-coming on so gradually that may not not be aware you have one.

Most Subluxations Don’t Cause Pain

Most people with subluxations are not in pain since most nerves do not carry pain messages. They may watch their body suffer and their health deteriorate for years without the faintest idea that the problem may be coming from their spine.

The Chiropractic Adjustment

Subluxations do not go away by themselves. No amount of painkillers or muscle relaxants can fix them. Only doctors of chiropractic are able to analyze your spinal column for "pinched" nerves or vertebral subluxations and use spinal adjustments to gently realign your spine, release your internal stress and free you from your symptoms.
