How Does Chiropractic work?
To fully understand this question and its answer we must first know a little bit about how the body works and what can cause it to work improperly.
The brain controls all the body's functions. It communicates with other parts of the body by nerve impulses. Most of these impulses are relayed to the other body parts via the spinal cord. The spinal cord is protected by the spinal column, which consists of individual vertebrae separated by cushioning discs.
From the spinal column, nerves network out between the vertebra to all of the organs and muscles in the body. Upon exceptional stress to your spinal column, such as an accident, fall, years of poor posture, or long-term tension, the vertebrae can slip out of position and "pinch a nerve." The chiropractic term for this condition is SUBLUXATION.
A vertebral subluxation is a misaligned vertebra causing interference with nerve messages between the brain and the body. This can cause symptoms of backache, tingling in the arms and legs, head-aches, fatigue, improper digestion and a wide assortment of other symptoms.
Now that we know how the body works we can begin to understand how chiropractic works.
Your chiropractor locates your subluxations and through gentle adjustments can restore the body's normal functions. With nerve passages open and regulatory impulses free to pass, the body's miraculous nervous system can heal itself. Chiropractic goes directly to the root of the problem. It does not mask symptoms as painkillers and frequently addictive prescription drugs often do.
