Chiropractic is the art and science of detecting subluxations and then removing them with a specific adjustment. Our body is controlled by our central nervous system: the brain and spinal cord. When the central nervous system is functioning correctly the body is functioning correctly, but when there is a misalignment, we slowly start to lose our function. Think of your spine as a garden hose. When you turn on the water it is freely flowing. However, when there is a kink or twist in the hose, the water stops. Our spine is the same when there is a misalignment, it pinches on those nerves creating pain, abnormal sensations, degeneration, muscle tightness/spasms, and decreased range of motion.
Each and every day when we are doing our daily activities and it stresses the joints in our body, which can lead to subluxations. Subluxation is the lack of proper function of a joint. Once the subluxation is detected and corrected then the body can start to function properly. Many patients say they can move easier, sleep better, have improved digestion, along with just being able to live the life they were intended to live.
