What is Chiropractic and Why is it so Important?

Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline that is centered on the role of the spine and central nervous system in maintaining good health and leveraging the recuperative power of the body to heal itself naturally and efficiently.

What does that all mean? Essentially, Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the structure of the spine and the function of the nervous system. The structure, or spine, is made up of small bones called vertebrae. These vertebrae house the spinal cord and numerous nerves that make up the nervous system. Through regular Chiropractic adjustments this important relationship is able to function optimally, promoting the preservation and restoration of health.

Chiropractors identify and correct the cause of spinal misalignments, which restores the neurological communication between the brain, nervous system, and the rest of your body. This communication is vital to the health of your body. If this communication is altered it impacts things such as the function of your body’s muscles and organs. Through regular Chiropractic adjustments this important communication between your nervous system and body is properly restored and maintained to allow you to be the healthiest you can be.

Much like regular visits to your dentist promote good oral health and prevent dental problems, regular Chiropractic visits maintain the health and wellness of your spine and ultimately your entire body.

Stay healthy, get adjusted regularly!
