Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that uses spinal adjustments to correct misalignments and restore proper function to the nervous system. This helps your body to heal naturally. Chiropractic doesn’t use drugs or surgery. Rather, a chiropractic spinal adjustment, corrects the misalignment, called a subluxation, permitting normal nerve transmission and assisting your body to recuperate on its own. The nerves to the body descend from the brain through the spinal cord and exit at each vertebrae to tissues. Subluxations of the bones in the spine decrease nerve supply to the tissues in the body resulting in suboptimal health. Restoring spinal alignment also restores nerve supply to the tissues and allows the innate healing abilities of the body to restore health and function to the tissues.
