What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a holistic system of healthcare focused on restoring, preserving, and optimizing health by natural hands-on care.

The spine acts as a protective cage for the spinal cord. All of the nerves in your body, which control everything from muscle function to digestion, originate from the spinal cord. These nerves exit through holes made up by the bones of the spine. When vertebrae are misaligned, they can irritate these spinal nerves as they exit the spine. This irritation can cause localized pain, as well as problems in the area(s) that those nerves travel to.

Remember that nerves control everything in your body, so it is extremely important to have a healthy, functioning nervous system. Chiropractors use their hands to administer an adjustment (a quick and controlled “push”) to the spine in areas where it is not moving properly. By restoring natural motion to the spine, nerve irritation is eliminated and spinal mobility is increased. Chiropractic is safe and effective for all age groups.

Think of all the stress we place on our bodies each day: working at a desk, sitting with poor posture, carrying children, lifting groceries out of the car, cleaning our homes, jogging…the list goes on. It’s no wonder that many of us have aches and pains that stem from spinal imbalances. For patients in pain, chiropractic care can alleviate your pain naturally and prevent it from returning. For patients not currently experiencing pain, chiropractic care will help you maintain spinal mobility, prevent future injuries, and benefit your overall health by allowing your nervous system to function optimally.
