How Chiropractic Helps

Chiropractors detect subluxations and correct those to enhance the healing process of the body.  All bodily functions are controlled by the brain.  

The brain sends and receives messages over nerves and when the nerves becomes stretched or twisted, referred to as a pinched nerve this important information is disrupted. This disruption is called a subluxation.

Subluxation also cause abnormal posture which will apply tension on the vertebrae, muscles, ligaments and tendons. This increased tension interferes with blood flow to internal organs.  Lack of oxygen in cells, tissues and organs causes dysfunction and disease.

Instead of treating symptoms of disease, the Doctor of Chiropractic corrects the subluxations so that normal body function may be restored.  The Doctor of Chiropractic places his/her hands on your back or neck and gently lines up the vertebrae into their natural position.  

This process make take weeks or months, depending on the amount of misalignment.  As the alignment is restored, the nerve supply will more effectively communicate throughout your body and the healing process begins.  As your body heals, your optimum health improves.
