Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and millions of nerves. Your brain is protected by the skull, and your spinal cord by the 24 moving bones of the spine. Many everyday activities can cause these spinal bones to lose their normal position of motion. This can result in nervous system dysfunction and ultimately, ill health.
The Chiropractic approach to better health is to detect problems through testing and diagnostic imaging, reduce pain through physical and alternative therapies, and help prevent nervous system dysfunction. Chiropractic medicine is a natural approach to health care which uses no medications or surgeries.
