Chiropractic is the largest, drugless healing profession in the world that specializes in locating and correcting a severe form of spine and nerve stress, a condition that puts pressure on nerves, unbalances your body, lowers your resistance to disease and weakens you – a subluxation.
A subluxation is an often painless misalignment of a spinal bone that can affect your nerves, muscles, internal organs, discs, bones, brain function, posture and overall health.
The nervous system controls and coordinates the function of all the systems in the body (i.e. circulatory, respiratory, digestive, hormonal, eliminative and immune system) – any aspect of health may be impaired by nerve interference.
The chiropractic adjustment restores nerve system function allowing the body the ability to express a greater state of health and well-being.
How Can Chiropractic Help You?
Chiropractic is the philosophy, science and art concerned with the detection, identification and correction of the vertebral subluxations. A subluxation is a condition in the body where a bone or vertebrae are out of proper alignment causing pressure or an interference with the nervous system altering proper function.
The nervous system controls every aspect of your body. When a subluxation interferes with the nerve system, it creates “dis-ease” (a term used to denote the loss of body harmony). Although this condition is often painless, it can cause irreparable damage if it remains undetected or uncorrected. It also can lead to gradual erosion of health and well-being.
Each and every one of us has the right to good health and it is never too late to take charge and live life to its full potential. By correcting subluxations and removing the interference to your nervous system, your body is free to function more efficiently on all levels. You do not have to be in pain or discomfort to benefit from chiropractic adjustments.

What If I Feel Fine?
Even if you feel fine, chiropractic care can help your body maintain or even improve its level of health and fitness. Most people are surprised to hear that chiropractic doctors do not treat symptoms, but its true. Treating symptoms is reserved for medical doctors. The medical approach to healthcare is prescribing drugs or surgery to numb, slow down, speed up, or cut out malfunctioning body parts.
Covering up symptoms with medication or removing parts with surgery never correct the cause of the problem; chiropractic doctors look to find the cause of the problem and help correct it. When you correct the cause of the problem, the symptoms will fade and eventually disappear.
Judging your health by how you feel can be dangerous! The first symptom of heart disease could be a fatal heart attack. By the time you feel a symptom, the problem has already been there too long.
On the other hand, you can be healthy and not feel well. Coughing, fever, diarrhea, and other symptoms are natural ways your body responds to infection and disease. This means your nervous system is working!
The focus of chiropractic is the proper functioning of your nervous system!
The absence of symptoms does not mean you have health. Regular spinal checkups can help detect and prevent spinal stress due to subluxations.
