Chiropractic is a natural and conservative form of
health care, offering alternative treatment for
many conditions other than medication and

It is important to understand why our spine plays
such a significant role in our health.  The brain
and spinal cord make up the central nervous
system which is
completely encased and protected by the skull
and spinal column.

The spinal cord and spinal nerves are the main
pathway every function of the body.

"The nervous system controls and coordinates all
organs and structures of the human body."  
(Gray's Anatomy, 29th Ed., page 4)  

The spinal column includes 24 vertebra, each
separated by a disc.  Spinal nerves exit from
between each vertebra and extend to all parts of
the body.  When spinal vertebrae are misaligned,
those misalignments cause pressure or irritation
on the nerves, causing pain, numbness,
weakness, muscle spasms and interfering with
proper nerve signals to parts of the body. These
vertebral misalignments are called subluxations.   

Chiropractic is a natural approach to health care.  
It is based on the very simple premise – that good
health depends on a normal functioning nervous
system. Chiropractic uses a “hands on” approach
to treating and preventing disorders of the
musculoskeletal system as well as the effects of
those disorders on the nervous system.
Chiropractic's hands-on approach is treatment
without the use of drugs or surgery.

Chiropractors are specialized in locating and
correcting spinal subluxations. Treatment consists
of manual manipulation of the spine to restore
proper alignment. Such manipulations are called
adjustments. Spinal adjustments can correct
structural imbalances, thus restoring proper
nerve function and relieving the symptoms of
pain, numbness and muscle weakness
. Not only
can chiropractic treatment help to relieve  pain,
but it can also help to maintain better health by
allowing the body to function at it's optimum ability
without nerve interferences - therefore, the
reason that chiropractic care should be a part of
your health maintenance and preventative
