Chiropractic is one of the nation’s leading forms of natural healthcare. In addition to being ranked among the most effective and most affordable forms of natural pain relief, chiropractic care also has the potential to bring people to levels of health above and beyond what they ever thought was possible!! This is accomplished by removing stress from the nervous system, the body’s master control center, and allowing it to do what it does best – operate in a balanced, pain-free, and efficient way! A spine that moves well helps a person to live well.
The spine is made up of 24 vertebrae, or spinal bones, each responsible for a small amount of movement. This allows a person to move freely through life for everyday activities such as looking over the shoulder to back out of the driveway or for more intense activities such as throwing a fastball. When any one joint of a vertebrae gets stuck or jammed, the nearby joints will work harder and stretch further in an attempt to compensate for the decreased range of motion of the stuck joint (termed a “subluxation”). This leads to improper and imbalanced motion of the spine and irritation of the surrounding structures, including the nervous system. Many serious issues can arise from the imbalance and irritation. The most familiar issue, but not necessarily most concerning, is pain. Other issues include faulty muscular coordination leading to joint damage such as arthritis, hypersensitivity reactions of systems other than the muscles such as digestive issues, allergies, and chronic fatigue.
The chiropractic adjustment restores proper motion to the spine and allows the body to resolve the irritation of the muscles, joints, and nervous system. The effects are scientifically-validated and AMAZING!
