Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your body is a self-regulating, self-healing organism. These important functions are controlled by the brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of the body.The skull protects the delicate tissues of the brain. The moving bones of the spine protect the vulnerable communication pathways of the spinal cord and nerve roots. If the spinal bones are misaligned the nervous system can be impaired, causing malfunction of the tissues and organs throughout the body. Doctors call this the Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Vertebral, meaning bones of the spine. Subluxation, meaning less than a total dislocation. And Complex, meaning consisting of more than one part.The sole purpose of your chiropractic doctor is to identify these damaging subluxations, determine the most effective method for their removal and then gently realign the spine, allowing the body to heal naturally. Health!!
