Your Nerve System is the dominant system in your body. It controls and regulates the function of all cells, tissues, organs, and systems of your body. Because of the tremendous importance of this system, nature protects most of the system by bone. Your skull protects your brain and your spinal bones protect the spinal cord and spinal nerve roots. Your Nerve System's functionality can be compared to an electrical system. Just as with electrical systems, the proper flow of energy through your nerves is vital for normal function and health. Your brain sends message's down your spinal cord, and branches out the spinal nerves to the different organs of your body. In response, the organs send a corresponding message back through the nerves, up the spinal cord, and back to the brain to complete the information loop. The specialty of a chiropractor is to maintain or fix the flow of this message and to maintain a healthy functioning body. A blockage of the message transmission called Vertebral Subluxation can result in sickness and disease. Proper message flow promotes healing, health and wellness.
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a system of correcting (as opposed to treatment) the spinal column to allow normal body functionality. Chiropractic is founded on the idea that the body is a self-healing organism. Healing within the body occurs at its full potential when interference's are eliminated.
What is a Vertebral Subluxation?
The most common type of nervous system interference is called a Vertebral Subluxation, which most often occurs in the spinal column. The nervous system is the dominant system of the body because it controls and regulates every cell in the body. Vertebral Subluxation's obstruct the nervous system and prevents proper messaging which leads to poor health, and promotes sickness and disease. Vertebral Subluxation's are detected and corrected only by chiropractic doctors. Once Vertebral Subluxation's have been corrected, the overall function and healing capacity of the body is increased. A chiropractic examination can detect if a Vertebral Subluxation is present and preventing you from achieving normal function and health.
