What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is based on the important relationship between the spine and the nervous system. One of the most basic ideas in chiropractic is that dysfunction in the spine, called a vertebral subluxation, can lead to dysfunction within the nervous system, and since the nervous system controls and coordinates all of the systems of the body, vertebral subluxations can have wide ranging effects on the body’s overall health. Chiropractors are the only doctors trained to evaluate and adjust the spinal dysfunction.
What are the benefits of Chiropractic?
The benefits of chiropractic are abundant! When you improve the function of the spine and nervous system through chiropractic, you have the potential to improve the function of all other systems in the body. With the science of psyconeuroimmunology, we know that the nervous system is intimately connected to the immune system. Improved immune function is one of the most talked about benefits of chiropractic care. Because of the neurological connections to the stomach, small and large intestines, improved digestive and gut function can also result from proper chiropractic care. Spinal adjustments can also improve the motor nerves thereby enhancing gross and fine motor skills. It has been shown that chiropractic adjustments improve neurological function which can improve mood, social behavior, focus and concentration. In short, when you improve the function of the spine and nervous system with chiropractic, you enhance the health potential of the human body on every level.
