The Simple Truth About Chiropractic3d rendered illustration - sections of the spine

It’s Effective. Because the nervous system controls your entire body, and chiropractic care helps restore nervous system integrity, chiropractic care has been known to help a variety of health issues.

It’s Natural. Simply put, chiropractic care doesn’t add chemicals to your body. And it doesn’t remove parts. Instead, it seeks to restore proper control and regulation of your body so health can return, naturally.

It’s Safe. Chiropractic care is so safe, even newborns get adjusted to correct the spinal trauma from the birth process!

There’s No Side Effect. Any “side effects” tend to be positive effects. Such as better balance, more energy, increased vitality and improved coordination.

It’s the Smart Choice. It makes sense to correct the underlying cause rather than fool the body with drugs. Studies show that chiropractic patients tend to be better educated.

What Are Subluxations?

A subluxation is the result of spinal bones with improper motion or position affecting nerve communications between your brain and your body.

Distorted nerve communications can be an underlying cause of many health problems.

A subluxation is a stress response. Muscles go into spasm. Spinal bones lock up. And adjacent nerves are choked. This interferes with the control and regulation of your body. This distorts communications between the brain and parts of your body.

Distorted nerve communications can be an underlying cause of many health problems beyond just headaches, neck pain, and back pain. For example, interference with nerve impulses going to or from your stomach: stomach problems.

Your nervous system controls every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. These nerve impulses travel through your spine. So having a spine free of subluxations is essential for optimal health.

Only a chiropractic examination can detect subluxations. And only chiropractic adjustments can reduce their effect to your nervous system, naturally.

How to get subluxation?

There are three basic causes of subluxations. Physical causes include slips and falls, accidents, repetitive motions, and improper lifting. Stress, anger and fear are examples of emotional causes of subluxations. Alcohol, drugs, pollution, toxins, and poor diet can be chemical causes of subluxations.

How can I tell if I have subluxations?

You can have subluxations and not even know it. Like the early stages of tooth decay or cancer, subluxations can be present before warning signs appear. The results of a thorough examination can show the location and severity of any subluxations you may have.

Find out if you have subluxations before they become more serious and more difficult to correct.
