Chiropractic is an alternative health care field that focuses on correcting joint misalignments called ‘subluxations’. Misalignments that occur in the spine and other places in the body cause interference to nervous system flow. This interference will disrupt the way the body, organs, muscles, and other parts of the body function. It is the chiropractor’s job to remove these subluxations with a chiropractic adjustment (done by hand) thus removing the interference and returning the body to its normal functioning state.
The main purpose of chiropractic is to align and correct vertebral subluxations along the spine, thereby improving the patient’s overall nervous system function leading to enhancement in overall well-being and better health.
Chiropractic care has attracted over the years people seeking help usually for:
- Low back and leg pain
- Neck, arm and hand pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Mid back, shoulder, knee pain
- Pre and post pregnancy chiropractic care
And for a great deal of the time people have found relief for some of the conditions listed above. Our experience has been that when you help the body to reach homeostasis by removing subluxations people have found some form of relief. Along with key factors that will help your body heal itself faster are: proper nutrition, hydration, movement, sleep and stress management.
