About Chiropractic Care
The Art and Science of Structural Alignment was given the name “CHIROPRACTIC” almost 125 years ago. It was defined, then refined into a specific, natural healing art based on the principle that the best health cannot be gained or maintained without the normal, natural alignment of the spinal column which results in freedom from nerve interference. To the degree that you enjoy freedom from nerve interference, you are also more likely to enjoy good health.
It is a law of nature that when the body is out of balance, or alignment, nerve pressure can result in discomfort, pain, and illness.
Even the slightest misalignments of the spine can produce pressure and irritation upon nerves and when that happens, the transmission of vital nerve energy to the organs, cells, and tissues of the body can be altered. Examples of this are a sluggish gallbladder or liver, rapid heartbeat, or over-active stomach. Indeed, irritated nerves cause either increased or decreased body function in whatever organs those nerves supply.
Balance, Harmony, and Health
The ordinary daily stresses and strains of normal living and even the unavoidable pull of gravity on the upright body often overcome the body’s alignment and can cause poor posture and poor body mechanics. Misalignment of the spinal vertebrae can result. Additionally, when the accumulated stresses of environmental factors severely tax the immune system and overwhelm the body’s ability to adapt and cope, it makes no sense to further insult the system with drugs or chemicals.
It makes more sense to remove stresses to the body. Chiropractic Care helps to re-balance the body, remove stress on and in the nervous system and restore the body’s ability to effectively function in its environment.
Chiropractic Care is:
An approach to health which utilizes the body’s inherent natural recuperative powers.
A healing science which places emphasis on maintaining the structural and functional integrity of the body.
A method of healthcare which is conservative and does not utilize drugs or surgery.
