Chiropractic is a discipline of healing rooted in science, art and philosophy. It is based on the direct relationship between the integrity of your nervous system and the health of your body. Your nervous system directly controls the function of every cell, tissue, and organ in your body.
Chiropractors examine the bones and joints of the spine as well as surrounding muscles, ligaments and tissues to detect subluxations in the spine. Subluxations are areas in the spine where abnormal position or movement of the vertebrae interferes with communication within the nervous system resulting in abnormal function in the body. These can be found using various diagnostic methods including palpation, range of motion, orthopedic testing, radiographic findings and other methods.
In order to eliminate these subluxations, a chiropractor will perform gentle and specific adjustments which help your spine to return to its proper position and normal range of movement and enable your body to heal itself.
