"The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease." ~Thomas A. Edison
What is Chiropractic?
The nervous system monitors and regulates all systems in the body. There are receptors inside and outside the body which are constantly monitoring conditions. When change is needed, signals are sent through the nervous system which triggers responses to bring the system back into the normal range of function. This is how our bodies maintain homeostasis.
Vertebral subluxation happens when a vertebra in the spine becomes stuck in a misaligned position narrowing the opening for the nerve. The impinged nerve may become irritated and have decreased activity which effects the part of the body supplied by the nerve, resulting in abnormal function or pain.
