Chiropractic Treatment is based on the science that the nervous system controls every function in the human body. When spinal bones (vertebrae) move out of position (subluxate), they often put pressure on the nerves that exit the spinal column. These nerves serve as a communication line between the brain and the body. When pressure is put on the nerves by the vertebrae, they can no longer communicate correctly.
This “communication failure” can result in many common conditions such as: pain, numbness, tingling, headaches, weakness, infertility and decreased function of vital organs. Keep in mind that the nerves control everything we do, from the way we blink our eyes to the way we move our arms. These nerves also control our heart, lungs, kidneys, bowels, reproductive organs, and bladder.
ALL of our organs are controlled by nerves. Chiropractors relieve symptoms by addressing the root cause of many problems, which is usually nerve interference. This is done by removing the pressure from the nerves so the nerves can communicate efficiently. The pressure is removed by performing a gentle procedure called an adjustment or spinal manipulation.
