How does it work?
Chiropractic is based on the goal of removing imbalances both structural and postural to remove stress from your nervous system allowing your body to heal itself. For this to happen there must be no interference of the signals from your brain, down your spinal cord, to the network of nerves controling your whole body. Great health is only possible if the information from your brain is allowed to flow freely without any interruption to all parts of your body. Chiropractors have the ability and skill to remove these interruptions or misalignments (Vertebral Subluxations) and allow the body to perform as it was meant to.
Physical, chemical and even emotional stress can cause nervous system interference. If you've ever been in a car accident, played a sport, fell down or just bumped into something too hard, it's very possible that you are not functioning at your best due to a misalignment. While there are many potential mechanical or structural causes for misalignment, there are also chemical reasons. For instance, if you smoke or drink excessively or even just have a poor diet, the chemical issues in your body can eventually cause underlying conditions and disease to appear. It is a long proven fact that prolonged emotional stress causes illness and disease.
Allowing a chiropractor to get you back on track both chemically and structurally will bring your body back to the proper state it should be in to perform at it's peak. Correcting physical and chemical stresses in turn helps coping with mental and emotional stressors.
