Chiropractic is a primary health care discipline based on the scientific premise that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism.
The master controller of the body is the nervous system consisting of the brain and spinal cord. It delivers all the information you need from the sensors in your body to your brain and then returns the appropriate instructions to your body again.
The skull protects the delicate tissue of the brain. The moving bones of the spine protect the spinal cord and branching nerves (nerve roots). Subluxation, or more precisely, the Vertebral subluxation Complex, describes what happens when spinal bones lose their normal motion or position from emotional stress, physical trauma or chemical imbalances,
This lack of normal function may lead to confused or unclear information from this area to your brain. The messages that return to the joints from the brain are then not as accurate as they could be which means that you may not function or perform as well as you could.
Many everyday activities can lead to bones of the spine losing their normal motion or position resulting in a Subluxation.
Chiropractic is the science of correcting Vertebral Subluxations by using a chiropractic adjustment; a safe carefully directed, specific and controlled quick impulse. Removing subluxations restores proper motion and position to the spine, giving the body the ability to return to its optimal functioning condition.
