Chiropractic is a profession dedicated to improving the lives of people by naturally restoring proper function to the nervous system. Doctors of Chiropractic look to the spine to find specific locations where the body is not functioning properly. These areas are often where the body is “storing stress” and the condition is termed Vertebral Subluxation Complex (subluxation). Once these areas have been identified, the chiropractor is able to remove the subluxation gently through a chiropractic adjustment. The immediate effect of the adjustment is a restoration of the proper nerve flow from the brain to the body and from the body back to the brain. Chiropractic is based on the principle that the body must have constant and appropriate nerve communication to function properly.
