Chiropractic is a conservative treatment of health problems without the use of drugs or surgery intended to reduce vertebral subluxations through specific chiropractic spinal adjustments. The goal is to restore optimal posture and spinal alignments which results in improved range of motion and reduced spinal wear and tear.
Your nervous system is composed of the brain, spinal cord, and spinal nerves. It controls every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body by sending nerve impulses down from your brain through your spine to those organs and tissues. A vertebral subluxation is the result of spinal bones with improper motion or position affecting nerve communications between your brain and your body. It is a stress response in the body which causes muscle spasms and irritates the spinal nerves.
Distorted nerve communications can be an underlying cause of many health problems beyond just headaches and back pain. For example. Interference with nerve impulses going to or from your stomach: stomach problems.
Therefore, having a spine free of vertebral subluxations is essential for optimal health.1
