Chiropractic Care Means Improved Overall Health
Chiropractic care is a holistic approach for improving and restoring health. Chiropractors are trained to view each person as a whole, understanding that every part of the body is connected. Every cell, organ, muscle, and tissue in our body is connected and coordinated by the nervous system. The nervous system is where it all comes together, and the health of our nervous system determines the health of the entire body. With this understanding, we look to the spine, as the spine houses and protects the central nervous system. The goal of chiropractic care is to restore and maintain proper spinal alignment and motion; therefore allowing the nervous system to function optimally resulting in the full expression of health.
How does it work?
Improper spinal alignment creates stress throughout the body. It disrupts proper movement of the spinal vertebrae, increases muscular tension, and interferes with the function of the nervous system which can create a myriad of symptoms depending on the nerves affected.
A chiropractor is trained to assess and detect areas of misalignment or fixation in the spine. Through the delivery of specific chiropractic adjustments, the chiropractor can gradually restore the spine to its natural position and motion, thus improving nervous system function, spinal function, and overall health.
