Chiropractic is the second largest, and fastest growing healing profession in the world today. It is an "inside-out" approach to healing which allows the body to heal itself from within. It is a natural, non-invasive form of primary health care focused on the spine and nervous system and based on the fact that many health disorders are caused by nerve interference in the body. The most common cause of nerve interference is a serious, but common condition known as "Vertebral Subluxation". Subluxations are very common and can be caused by many different factors including: poor posture, stress (physical or emotional), and physical trauma (including sports or workplace injuries, car accidents etc…).
Chiropractors locate, and correct Vertebral “Subluxations” (Spinal Misalignments) that interfere with the vital nerve communication between the brain and the body and inhibit or interfere with the body’s natural (innate) ability to heal. Chiropractors correct "Vertebral Subluxations" (misalignments) with gentle and controlled "Spinal Adjustments" improving the mobility, alignment, and overall health of the spine and the function of the nervous system. In other words, chiropractors are not simply "back doctors", but are "nerve specialists". Regular spinal check-ups maintain your spine in optimal health and prevent long-term spinal malfunction and degeneration.
