Chiropractic is a natural method of health care that restores and promotes proper structural alignment and function to the body. Nerves extend outward from areas between each vertebrae to supply the extremities and internal organs. When the vertebrae are out of place, nerve function is diminished. By realigning the spine and other structural joints, overall function is improved.
Nerve function serves to support our bodies with muscle movement, blood and oxygen supply and as a central communication line. Even our hormones and emotions can be affected by improper alignment of the spine.
You may also hear the term “subluxation”, which refers to improperly aligned vertebrae. The method used to realign the spine we call a chiropractic adjustment. The adjustment gently restores proper alignment to the joints of the spine.
There are many causes of a subluxation. Some of these causes include a fall, trauma, injury, poor posture, improper sleeping habits and poor working conditions. In other cases, a preexisting subluxation may cause or exacerbate problems. Which comes first, the chicken or the egg? Whichever comes first, chiropractic adjustments help to restore the body to a healthier functioning system.
