Chiropractic helps to remove postural imbalances and structural misalignments that can accumulate in our bodies over time. Our spines change and develop problems just like our teeth, eyes and heart. Left unchecked, these changes may lead to pain, early onset arthritis or other more serious problems.

Each of us is born with the ability to heal and recover from illness. Our bruises heal, cuts mend and common colds are overcome. Your nervous system regulates this inborn healing ability.

Chiropractic works by restoring your own inborn ability to be healthy. For your body to remain healthy, your nervous system must function well.  By restoring spinal function with Chiropractic Adjustments, nerve interference is reduced by misaligned vertebrae, thus allowing optimal nervous system function and improved health.

The Nervous System.... is a key part of your body. It is the communication system between your brain and all of your body's muscles, organs and tissues. The spine is the most common site of nervous interference because nerves travel from the spinal cord through openings on either side of the spine to communicate to all of your cells and organs.

Think of your brain as a central command post sending and receiving information through telephone wires (your nerves), which branch out to connect all areas of a city (your body).  A short circuit in a wire cuts off communication just like misalignments in your spine can put pressure on the nerves. This pressure interferes with your nervous system, affects your ability to self-heal and may prolong injury or illness leading to chronic health problems.

The main causes of joint dysfunction are mechanical and chemical. Mechanical causes are referred to as micro or macro trauma.  Micro trauma can also be called a repetitive stress injury.  Sitting with poor posture at a desk and typing all day can cause problems such as carpal tunnel, neck, upper back, or low back pain.  Macro trauma refers to pain due to trauma to the body, such as a fall, a break, or a car crash.  Both forms of mechanical causes of joint dysfunction can benefit immensely from chiropractic care.  Another cause of joint dysfunction is due to the chemical effects on the joint function and the body as a whole. Smoking, alcohol, genetics and poor diet are common precursors that can create chemical imbalances in the body.

The customized care you receive from your Chiropractor may help to improve your posture, muscle balance and mobility. It can also restore the integrity of your nervous system and get rid of pain quickly, so you can get back to feeling good today!
