Chiropractic is the practice and science of detecting and correcting vertebral subluxation, which occurs when one or more of the bones in your spine, neck or pelvis becomes improperly aligned or loses its ability to move properly.
While pain is one of the most common symptoms, subluxation can lead to far more devastating problems. It alters nerve function within the spinal cord and within the nerve roots exiting the spine, which connect the brain to every cell, organ and tissue in the body. Subluxation is commonly the underlying cause of muscle spasms and tension, swelling and abnormal sensations of numbness or tingling. Left uncorrected for a long period of time, subluxation causes spinal degeneration in the bones, joints, discs, and surrounding soft tissues in the spine.
Recent research indicates that subluxation can also increase sympathetic stress reactions in the brain and body called “fight or flight” responses. Enduring these sustained “fight or flight” responses can lead to hormonal and emotional imbalances, inflammatory reactions, elevated blood pressure, decreased concentration, poor digestion, sugar and metabolism problems, and even decreased immune function. The effects of stress are responsible for many chronic and degenerative diseases, which seem to be on the rise in our society today.
Our bodies were designed such that when there is little to no pressure on the spine and nerve system, we have the innate power to properly function, heal, restore and maintain normal body functions, without drugs or surgery. Chiropractic has such a powerful impact because it works with the amazing power that is already in our bodies.
