What is chiropractic?
Chiropractic is the largest alternative healing profession in the world. It was founded on the principle that our most important organ, the brain, is protected by the skull while the extension of the brain, the spinal cord, is protected by number moveable bones making up the spine. Therefore, the spine can be considered one of the most important structures in our bodies. It protects and houses the spinal cord while allowing us to bend, twist, and move with relative ease. When the spine loses it’s normal motion or axis of rotation, the degenerative process sets in, causing spinal decay, and eventually pain and inflammation in the affected joints.
This loss of normal motion in the spine is what chiropractors have, for the last one hundred years, referred to as a “subluxation.” The goal of chiropractic is to detect and correct spinal misalignments, or subluxations, therefore restoring normal motion to the spine, and in the end adding many years of life to your spine. When the spine is healthy, you are healthy. Period.
