Chiropractic produces results by helping your nervous system work the way it should. It's a scientific fact that your brain, spinal cord and the rest of your nerves control every aspect of your body. Hinder the vital nerve links between your brain and your body, and disease will occur.
These subluxations can produce a variety of health problems.Nerve pressure can cause numbness, weakness or the under-performance of organs and tissues. Or, spinal misalignment can cause nerve tissue to stretch or become irritated. This can distort nerve messages between your body and your brain. The result? Hyperactive organ function, high blood pressure or even pain.
Other approaches to help with these diseases put chemicals into your bloodstream to artificially change the way your body works. Besides the side effects and possible kidney damage, drugs often ignore the real cause of the problem. Instead, the focus of chiropractic care is on the integrity of your nervous system.
A thorough examination helps locate areas of nervous system compromise. Subluxations in the spine are common culprits. Specific chiropractic adjustments help reduce these interferences. The intent is to restore your body's ability to regulate and heal itself. Without drugs. Without surgery. Chiropractic is simple. It's natural. It honors the wisdom of your body. And it has helped millions enjoy relief and better health for more than a century.
