Understanding Chiropractic
"When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied." (Herophilus)

What Is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a form of health care that emphasize the restoration and maintaining of a person's health through the adjusting of the spinal column (spine). The spinal column is the bony structure that houses the delicate spinal cord, a bundle of nerve fibers that connects (communicates) all parts of the body (muscles and organs) to the brain, this forms the nervous system. Although chiropractors are known for helping people with headaches, neck and back pain, we can also help other musculoskeletal problems that may have resulted from a fall, accident or injury. 


Chiropractic Adjustments

The Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.) has the ability to improve the motion within the spinal column through the application of a spinal adjustment. The adjustment can be done manually or by using a chiropractic adjustment instrument. Both are a high velocity maneuver that is applied to the spine to increase motion and to rid the spine of subluxations (misalignments). As motion is restored and improved wihtin the spinal column, the fluid and/or edema that was accumulated is remoeved or "pumped out." By doing so, the nerves are less or no longer irritated, resulting in more relaxed, normal, functioning muscles and other organs. 





"When in sickness first look to the spine." (Hippocrates)

 
Why is Chiropractic Care Important?

Subluxations (misalignments) of the spine lead to inadequate or lessen motion of the spinal column, which impede or interfere with the nervous system function. With inadequate or lessen motion of the spinal joints, fluid and edema begin to accumulate. This fluid and edema contains substances that irritate the spinal nerves and the surrounding tissues. 

When the nerves are irritated, they are not able to function in their full capacity, resulting in abnormally functioning muscle (s) and organ (s).

These spinal nerves become hypoactive, which is represented in the muscle system by acute or chronic muscle fatigue (weakness) OR hyperactive, which represented in the muscle system by muscle spasm/tightness, that leads to muscle tenderness (trigger points or tender points). It can also be expressed as digestive issues, numbness, imbalance, and so forth.
