QUICK ANSWERS TO COMMON QUESTIONS about CHIROPRACTIC CARE 

FAQ’S

What is Chiropractic care?

Chiropractic is a natural form of health care which has evolved over the past 115 years. The underlying principle of chiropractic care is that health problems can be treated and prevented by correcting spinal dysfunction. This is based on the vital relationship between the spine and the nervous system.

How does Chiropractic work?

Your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system in your body. In order to do this, nerves pass from the brain down through the spine and out through the holes between the bones of the spine (vertebrae). From here your nerves continue to spread throughout the rest of your body.

 

Correct spinal alignment and movement is essential for the healthy function of your nervous system. Physical stress, including trauma and unhealthy posture can cause vertebrae to lose their ideal healthy alignment and movement. This dysfunction is called “vertebral subluxation”. Untreated spinal stress and subluxations can lead to pain and discomfort.

 

Doctors of Chiropractic focus on detecting and removing subluxations, thereby allowing your body to function at its best.

What is an adjustment?
