What Is Chiropractic?

The purpose of chiropractic care is to restore and maintain the integrity of the relationship between the brain, the spinal cord, its nerve roots and all the cells, tissues, and organs under its control.

These nerve pathways are housed in and protected by the cranial and spinal bones (vertebra). Slight misalignments, distortions or imbalances of these protective structures can cause a disruption of the normal transmission of neurological impulses through these pathways, thus effecting the optimal functioning of the entire body. These disruptive events are called subluxations.

Chiropractic adjustments remove and/or reduce these subluxations, allowing your nervous system to function at a more optimal level. This allows your body a better opportunity to deal with life's stresses including: physical, emotional, spiritual and chemical/toxic stressors.

We recognize six essential facets of health care necessary to maintain an optimal state of health and wellbeing: proper nutrition, rest, positive mental attitude, spiritual/meditative practice, exercise and a healthy functioning nervous system. All of these facets of health depend ultimately on the last, a healthy functioning nervous system, to truly reap their full benefits.

The fundamental goal of chiropractic care is to correct or reduce subluxations, allowing the proper transmission of nerve impulses throughout the nervous system, so that every cell, tissue and organ of your body can have a proper nerve supply at all times. This assists the innate intelligence of your body to function at its optimum efficiency, increases your healing capacity, and allowing you to express your full potential.

Regardless of the disease, symptom or condition, you body functions better if nerve interference (subluxation) is removed. The ultimate goal of chiropractic is the restoration and maintenance of a healthy nervous system, not the treatment of disease.
