What is Chiropractic?
A chiropractic treatment is adjusting the segments of the spine in order to keep the nervous system free of pressure or impingement. This allows the nervous system and the brain to communicate freely, and restore the body’s natural healing ability.
Generally, there are two ways that you can experience nerve stress and tension (subluxation). One way is slow degeneration of the spine. Unfortunately, degeneration happens to everyone, but we can combat our bodies natural degeneration by exercising regularly and eating well. The other way is by suffering a traumatic injury. A traumatic injury can be a car accident or even just a slip and fall. When nerves in your spine are impinged you may feel the effects all over your body. It usually starts at the spine but the pain can quickly spread to other parts of your body.

Keeping your spine in alignment not only helps restore normal nerve function, but can prevent health problems from starting. Prevention and maintenance is the best thing you can do for your body.
