That's a great question. It seems that most chiropractors don't even know how to answer that these days. So here it is. Chiropractic is about maximizing your individual health potential. When the bones of your spine are out of their natural alignment (we call that a subluxation), they can put pressure on the spinal cord and/or spinal nerves that exit the spine at every level. Remember, your nerve system (the brain, spinal cord, and all the spinal nerves) control and coordinate EVERY function in your body. Every time you take a breath, every time your heart beats, every time you move; it is coordinated by your nerve system. There are literally billions of reactions that take place in your body every second, all of which are coordinated by your nerve system. You live your life through your nerve system. When the spine goes out of its natural alignment, putting pressure on the nerve system, it chokes off the flow of messages from the brain to the body. These nerve channels, or as I like to call them life channels, carry the messages of life to every cell in your body. How well can your heart work, your immune system work, your digestive system work, your lungs work, or any other part of your body work if the messages that control and coordinate those systems can't get where they need to go? The answer? Not very well. This is what Chiropractic is all about. We put the bones back in their natural alignment (we call that a chiropractic adjustment), taking the pressure off of your nerve system while opening those life channels back up, so that your body can heal itself. Hopefully you see that chiropractic isn't about neck pain or back pain. Chiropractic is about keeping your lifeline, your nerve system, functioning at 100% so you can function at 100%! You will be surprised by what your body can heal from when the brain and body can talk to each other 100% of the time. This is why so many people sign up with us and stay with us.
