A Chiropractic adjustment is the art of using a specific force in a precise direction, applied to a joint or vertebrae that is not moving properly. The purpose of this safe and natural procedure is to eliminate interference to the nervous system, improving spinal function and overall health. Gentle, specific spinal adjustments also boost your body's immune system. Chiropractic works by restoring your body's inborn ability to be healthy. When under the proper control of your nervous system, all the cells, tissues, and organs of your body are designed to resist disease and ill health. The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and remove interferences to your nervous system. With improved spinal function, there is improved nervous system function. The goal of our chiropractors is to remove interference that may be impairing normal health through specific chiropractic adjustments, allowing your body to heal itself. Regular adjustments before symptoms appear can help to prevent future problems but also future diseases. A healthy spine and a healthy lifestyle are your keys to optimal health!
