How does chiropractic heal?
When the spine and joints lose their normal position and motion, nervous interference is created, which causes pain, irritation and ill health. If left uncorrected, individual spinal bones progressivley degenerate.
Spinal adjustments help to relieve nervous irritation, so the body can fight disease and heal itself. Chiropractic improves your overall health because it improves the function of your nervous system. If affects the quality of life so that you can enjoy things that are important and really matter in your life.
Chiropractic is based on the idea of removing imbalances both structural and postural in an effort to allow our body to heal itself. For this to happen the network of nerves and signals from your brain, down your spinal cord, to the network of nerves must be allowed to flow freely without any interruption. Chiropractors have the ability and skill to remove these interruptions or misalignments and allow the body to perform as it was meant to.
If you've ever been in a car accident, played a sport, fell down or just bumped into something too hard, it's very possible that you are not functioning at your best due to a misalignment. While there are many potential mechanical or structural causes for misalignment, there are also chemical reasons. For instance, if you smoke or drink excessively or even just have a poor diet, the chemical issues in your body can eventually cause underlying conditions and disease to appear.
Allowing a chiropractor to get you back on track both chemically and structurally will bring your body back to the proper state it should be in to perform at it's peak.
