Chiropractic focuses on the natural healing power of the body. It is based on the philosophy that the body’s self-healing ability is controlled by the nervous system, your brain and spinal cord. Your nervous system is complex and facilitates millions of instructions that flow from your brain, down the spinal cord, and out into your body.
The focus is on solving the underlying causes of your discomfort rather than simply treating symptoms. Your nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) is responsible for sending instructions to every organ and tissue in your body. For example, when those messages are blocked by misalignments of the spine or improper joint motion, your body may respond with back pain, neck pain, headaches, or many other problems.
Chiropractic care focuses on maximizing your body’s natural capacity for self-healing. It is drug-free and addresses symptoms with non-surgical therapies.
