Chiropractic works by restoring your own inborn ability to be healthy. When under the proper control of your nervous system, all the cells, tissues, and organs of your body are designed to resist disease and ill health. The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and help remove interferences to your natural state of being healthy.A common interference to the nervous system is the 24 moving bones of the spinal column. A loss of normal motion or position of these bones can irritate or impair the function of the nervous system. This can disrupt the transmission of controlling nerve impulses.With improved spinal function there is often improved nervous system function. Your chiropractic doctor can help remove interference that may be impairing normal health.Since the primary focus of your care is improving nervous system function, chiropractic can have a positive effect on many health conditions not normally thought of as "back" problems.
