Some Clarity on The Role of Chiropractic Care
Vertebrae fit together so that the nerve supply produced in your brain may filter down your spinal cord and out over your nerves. These mental impulses of vital energy are resopnsible for growth, repair and healing in your body. The loss of alignment can cause nerves to become "pinched," or stretched and/or twisted.
This disturbance is termed "Vertibral Subluxation" and may result in the failure of one or more parts of the body, as well as fostering sickness and even disease. One of our jobs is to detect and correct subluxations, which can serve to treat the underlying cause of conditions instead of their symptoms alone.
Our goal in correcting these subluxations is to improve and restore natural body function. This is typically done by applying carefully controlled pressure gently along the vertebrae to correct position. As vital nerve energy is restored the body can heal, causing associated symptoms to diminish or disappear.
