Chiropractic is based on the anatomical and neurological principles that the nerve signals from your brain, travel up and down your spinal cord, becoming a network of communication which must be allowed to flow freely without any interruption in order for the body to express its greatest potential for health. Small, seemingly insignificant misalignments (known as a subluxations) of the spinal bones (known as vertebrae) have the ability to compromise this full nerve expression. Chiropractors have the ability and skill to remove these misalignments/ interruptions of nervous energy allowing the body to perform as it was meant to.
If you’ve ever been in a car accident, played a sport, fell down or just bumped into something too hard, it’s very possible that you are not functioning at your best due to a misalignment…a subluxation. There are many causes of spinal misalignment (subluxation), mostly mechanical or structural in nature; however, misalignments can also be caused by noxious insult such as chemicals. For instance, if you smoke or drink excessively or even just have a poor diet, the chemical issues in your body can eventually cause underlying conditions and disease to appear due to their negative impact on the nervous system.
Allowing a chiropractor to get you back on track structurally, and possibly chemically/nutritionally as well, will bring your body back to the fullest expression of nervous energy and allow a proper state of balance to occur thereby allowing the body to perform at its peak.
