Chiropractic is that science and art that through deliberate short lever adjustments, increases nerve function and improves the communication between the brain, spinal cord, and the body. What Chiropractors do is fix the subluxation through adjustments to increase and restore health. (As defined by Life University, College of Chiropractic)
Subluxation is a misalignment of a vertebrae in relation to the bone above it, below it, or both which impinges on nerves and interferes with nerve function.
In a word - Stress. There are three causes of stress:
The brain tells the body when and how to function, both conscious and unconscious functions such as walking and breathing. A subluxation decreases the body's ability to communicate with the brain and vice versa.
Symptoms are a flashing neon sign that the body sends out telling you to take notice and take care of the problem.
Symptoms and pain are normal reactions to let us know that there is a problem that needs to be corrected. If it wasn’t for our nervous system we may never know about most serious problems, or correct them before they become worse.
Your body has feedback systems to let the brain know when the body is or is not functioning properly. When the symptoms are covered up that doesn't mean the problem has been fixed.
Chiropractic care also benefits those who seek to maintain a higher level of health so they can work and play better, faster, and for longer periods of time.
