What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a natural method of health care that treats the causes of physical problems rather than just the symptoms. Chiropractic is based on a simple but powerful premise: With a normally functioning spine and nervous system and a healthy lifestyle, the body is better able to cope with the stresses of daily living (emotional, physical, chemical, environmental) and heal itself. That's because the spinal cord, which is protected by the bones of the spine, is the main pathway of the nervous system. The nervous system controls every function throughout the body. If there is a subluxation (a bone out of place or stuck in place) it will put pressure on the spinal nerves, and whatever that nerve is going to (heart, stomach, muscles, etc.) won't be able to function properly.
Why Are Spinal Checkups Important?
Just like you maintain your car by getting regular oil changes, your body needs periodic checkups too. Even if you don't have back pain, having regular spinal checkups is one of the best ways to help prevent problems from occuring. Chiropractic can help you and your family manage or prevent spinal problems and maintain healthier lives.
