Since its beginning, chiropractic has been based on the scientific fact that the nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body. While the brain is protected by the skull, the spinal cord is more vulnerable, covered by 24 moving vertebrae. When these bones lose their normal
motion or position, they can irritate the nervous system. This disrupts the function of the tissue or organs the nerves control, and is called the Vertebral Subluxation Complex or Subluxation Syndrome. Today's Doctor of Chiropractic takes four-years of post-graduate college education to master the adjusting "art" of chiropractic.
In addition to the science and art, Chiropractic philosophy recognizes that only the power that created the body can heal the body--if there isn't any interference. Instead of covering up your symptoms with drugs, chiropractic looks to correct the underlying cause(s). Chiropractic is the science of locating these areas of spinal joint
dysfunction, the art of correcting them, and the philosophy of things natural.
After a thorough examination and a review of your health history, your chiropractic doctor will recommend a specific care program. If yours is a chiropractic case, this will include specific
spinal adjustments.The word "chiropractic adjustment" describes using a carefully directed and controlled pressure to restore spinal bones to a more normal position or motion. When spinal function is
improved, nervous system function (health) can improve too. After years of training, chiropractic doctors become experts at using the right amount of force in the right direction. This may require a quick
movement or in other instances a slow and constant pressure. The chiropractic adjustment is truly an art.
Chiropractors are experts in the care of the bones, nerves, muscles and connective tissues that make up about 60% of your body. All of the joints in your body are part of this musculo-skeletal system and its
optimal function is necessary for overall good health. Ask your Doctor of Chiropractic for more information about a care program that may include specific spinal adjustments, exercise recommendations, nutritional
advice or other conservative methods of care based on your health history, age, current condition and lifestyle.
