Chiropractic is a healthcare discipline that focuses on the spine and its functional relationship to the nervous system.
The science and philosophy of chiropractic is summed up into 4 principles:
1. The body's self-healing.
2. The central nervous system controls and regulates every function.
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 and recover 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, leading to a pattern of abnormal nerve impulses. This affects the nerve connections throughout the body and often can result 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.
