Chiropractic health care is based on the belief that an innate wisdom (Health) in the body, informs and organizes every aspect of our being. The body is able to heal itself when this wisdom is able to communicate unimpeded throughout the body.
The wisdom of the body is conveyed through the fluids, blood and nerves to each and every cell in the body. The flow of information depends on the ability for the communication systems to function well.
The nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord, located within the bony protection of the skull and vertebral/spinal column. A small spinal nerve passes between each vertebra from both sides of the spinal cord through the small canals formed by two adjoining vertebrae. If the vertebrae are fixed (not moving), compressed or misaligned, there is interference to the normal nerve function, resulting in localized pain and can lead to dysfunction and more systemic problems.
Chiropractors adjust the vertebrae restoring mobility and ease to the spine and restoreing normal nerve function, this in turn facilitates the ability for the body's wisdom to flow to each and every cell in the body.
Improving the function of the nervous system, improves the function of all the systems in the body including the digestion, immune, endocrine and respiratory systems. Chiropractic health care helps to improve overall health and well-being.
