Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline that focuses on the spine and its relationship to the nervous system and the ability of the body to maintain healthy function.
There are four main principles:
1. The body's self-healing.
2. The central nervous system controls and regulates every function in the body.
3. Stress interferes with or disrupts the normal flow of nerve impulses.
4. Chiropractic adjustments remove spinal stress (misalignment/restriction) thus allowing the body to heal naturally.
In other words... The spine is the 'gatekeeper' of all signals that comes in to the brain and go out to the rest of the body. When vertebrae lose their normal degree of motion or position of alignment, nerves may become vulnerable to pressure changes, leading to a pattern of abnormal nerve impulses. This affects the connections throughout the body and often results in specific symptoms, including pain, headache, fatigue, joint aches/stiffness, numbness, illness, or a combination of other symptoms. By restoring alignment and mobility, your body will be more resilient to stress and will have a greater capacity to exist in a state of balance.
