What is Chiropractic?

Wether you are new to chiropractic or have already been adjusted and just want to know more about how it helps people all over the world achieve better health this article is for you!

Chiropractic is an extremely popular form of natural health care. It works by assessing the spine for misaligned bones that then put pressure (pinch) the nerves exiting the spine between the vertebrae. These nerves go directly to the muscles and organs of the body to and from the brain allowing them to function. If there is pressure on a nerve from a misaligned bone, whatever is at the end of that nerve, wether it is muscle or organ will not work at 100% and may develop symptoms such as pain, weakness or general feelings of being unwell.

Correcting misaligned bones is called an adjustment.  This is the primary therapy provided by a chiropractor.  It is typically done by hand and allows the body to heal itself by removing interference in the nervous system.  Correcting subluxations can allow sore muscles to feel better and bodily functions like digestion to work smoother too!

Because  chiropractic works by removing interference in the nervous system it works for many health problems. Some of the most common conditions chiropractic treatment has been proven to help with are: headaches, sciatica and low back pain, numbness/tingling in the hands and arms, back pain, shoulder and hip pain, indigestion, anxiety and problems with deep breathing. 

The longer a person has had symptoms generally the more progressed the problem is. If you or someone you know is having any of the symptoms listed above get in to see a chiropractor today.
