Chiropractors begin with the fundamental philosophy that under the right circumstances the body can heal itself. Health, wellness, and proper function should be expected. How is it that we get so far away from that?
The spine is the protector of the nervous system, which is made up of our brain, spinal cord, and nerves. Every action we take, both conscious and unconscious, is integrated and mediated by the nervous system. The nervous system is the master controller of all other systems and functions of the body including every cell, tissue, and organ. Therefore, any interference with the transmission of messages over the nervous system can have a detrimental effect on the proper functioning of the body as a whole.
Chiropractors check the spine for vertebral subluxation – the physical manifestation of interference in the nervous system. Our goal is to clear that interference in a precise, specific, and gentle manner. This is why we aim to check every spine on a regular basis – from newborn babies to the elderly. The principle remains the same. A system clear of interference will function better than a system that is being interfered with. Imagine a world where everyone could experience that kind of optimum function.
A chiropractic adjustment improves function of the entire body by clearing interference from the system that controls all others. From pain to immune dysfunction to childhood conditions such as colic or constipation, the benefits of chiropractic care are varied and profound. So how does chiropractic work? By freeing your whole system for the full expression of health!
