Chiropractic care focuses on your nervous system
Our brain and our spinal cord control every single function in our body.
For you to be reading this, for your lungs to breathe, for a cut to heal on your arm - all of that requires a message to be sent from your brain, down your spinal cord, through your nerves to every organ, tissue and cell in your body. Your central nervous system is so important, that it is the only system in the body that is directly encased in bone - your skull and your spine.
Chiropractic care focuses on making sure those messages are getting through by providing gentle and specific adjustments, made by the hands to the spine. This promotes a state of healing and optimal functioning for your body.
How chiropractic works
When we have symptoms, they're a sign or a warning signal for us to understand that something needs attention within our body.
Pain lets us know that there is something fundamentally wrong within our system.
But, just like a check engine light that comes on in the car, the light coming on - or in this case, the symptom - is not the problem; the real problem is within the engine. So, turning the light off doesn’t fix the engine problem, but getting to the root cause does.
As a chiropractor, instead of treating symptoms, we look for the basic fundamental root cause of your health problems. In searching to correct the cause of the problem, we see that many patients not only have relief of pain, but also an increased quality of life because their bodies are functioning and healing the way they were designed to.
