What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is about so much more than just the “treatment of misalignments of joints”. Chiropractic enhances and impacts the nervous system – that amazing, powerful and important control system that regulates EVERYTHING in your body! So, while it seems that we may focus our attention on the joints, in fact we are focusing our attention on the nerves and the nerve system that is being protected by those bones and joints. Because when stress is left to wreak its havoc on our bodies, our spines and our nerve system, we cannot function at our best. In fact, if left unattended, our bodies will continue to degenerate, decline, and lessen in vitality over the days, weeks, months and years. Taking the stress (subluxation) off that joint, tissue, and/or nerve allows the body to HEAL and work more efficiently.

Chiropractic looks at the overall function of the body. How much better could you function? How much more optimally can you meet the stresses of your day? What percentage of your focus, life, and energy could you bring to each and every day if you had less subluxation on your spine?

The fact is, environmental, physical, chemical, and emotional stresses take a toll on our body. And our bodies are pretty awesome – they adapt to those stresses. But eventually, our body hits its limit and it cannot adapt any longer. Then we start experiencing symptoms – our body’s way of telling us something is wrong. This is why Chiropractic helps people improve their health, function and energy – it takes away the effects of those cumulative stresses. This can be reactive – AFTER a symptom occurs…. OR it can be preventative – BEFORE the symptom occurs. The nice part about prevention is that it’s less time consuming and less expensive.

When people begin to understand Chiropractic, they start to understand the “chiropractic lifestyle”. It stands to reason that if stress from our daily attitudes, habits, posture, diet, relationships, job, and activities can impact our health negatively, so too can these same factors impact our health POSITIVELY if we make the right choices. One of those positive choices is getting regular checks and tune-ups to your nerve system, when needed. And that is our mission and passion – improving the nerve systems of families in our area!
