Why Chiropractic?

According to The Association of Chiropractic Colleges, "Chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs and surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health."

In a nutshell, chiropractic care produces results by helping your nervous system work the way it should.

´╗┐It's a scientific fact that your brain, spinal cord and the rest of your nerves control every aspect of your body.  Hinder those vital links between your brain and your body, and poor health can result.  A common source of intereference comes from the moving bones that encase the "information superhighway":  your spinal cord.

Nerve pressure can cause numbness, weakness or the under-performance of organs and tissues.  Or, spinal misalignment can cause nerve tissue to stretch, chafe and become irritated.  This can distort nerve messages between your body and your brain.  The result can be hyperactive organ function, high blood pressure or even pain.

The medical approach is to treat with chemicals (drugs) to change the way your body works.  Besides the side effects, possible kidney damage and fatal mistakes, drugs often ignore the real cause of the problem.  Instead, the focus of chiropractic care is on the integrity of your nervous system.

A thorough examination helps locate areas of nervous system compromise.  The moving bones of the spine are common culprits.  Then, specific chiropractic adjustments help reduce these interferences.  The intent is to restore your body's ability to regulate and heal itself, without drugs and without surgery.

Chiropractic care is simple, natural and honors the wisdom of your body.  And it has helped millions enjoy relief and better health for more than a century.
