Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.
Chiropractic care is considered alternative care and is mostly made up of chiropractic adjustments or manipulations. This treatment is safe, gentle and effective movements of your joints by the chiropractors hands or instrument performed for the purpose of restoring normal position and movement of those joints. Once these bones or vertebrae are restored to their proper position and normal movement is established, the spinal cord and its nerves are no longer irritated and so can work as they should. Remember, that the nervous system makes EVERYTHING in your body work, once the spine is simply “in line” and no irritation is on the nerve or spinal cord, the body has the ability to be strong, healthy and if injured…heal.
