What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a complete system of healthcare focused on restoring, preserving and optimizing health by natural hands-on care. Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulated, self-healing organism. The brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body control these important functions. The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spine protect the vulnerable communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. If the nervous system is impaired, it can cause malfunction of the tissues and organs throughout the body. When this system is not functioning at its peak, the overall performance of the human body is lacking. The chiropractic world focuses on allowing the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or medications. While nutrition changes and supplementation are integral parts of wellness, prescription drugs are seen as merely a temporary solution that merely treat symptoms rather than treating the underlying problem. Chiropractic patients often visit their chiropractor periodically in order to relieve irritations - to get "adjusted." Individuals also seek chiropractic care for neck pain, back pain, sciatica, headaches, joint pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, sprains, as well as non-musculoskeletal conditions including allergies, asthma, and digestive disorders as well as other more significant issues.
