About Chiropractic Care
Do you know how your body works? Your nervous system controls everything that happens in your body. Your brain constantly sends signals to your body to tell it what to do, and your body sends reports back to your brain, and together they run everything! All of those signals travel through your spinal cord and along your nerves to every part of your body. Those nerves must pass through small openings in the bones of your spine. Illness, injury or stress can move the bones of your spine out of place. This is called a “subluxation”. When the bones in your spine – the vertebrae – are out of place, they can put pressure on your nerves. This pressure can slow down, scramble, or entirely stop your nerve impulses from travelling to and from your brain, which can cause the part of your body connected to those nerves to malfunction. The body and the brain need to be able to talk to each other in order to work properly.
If the pressure on a nerve is not removed, over time you may find that you have increasing problems with the body part it serves. A chiropractor’s job is to find the bones that are out of place and gently return them to their proper position, removing the pressure from your nerves, allowing the body function correctly. Your body has an amazing ability to heal itself, but it can’t do its job if your bones are out of place. Once the chiropractor has adjusted your spine, the body can start to heal. When you have a subluxation, it will usually take a number of adjustments for your spine to stabilize in the correct position. Minor injuries often resolve in just a few visits, while more significant injuries or chronic conditions will take longer. But over time, chiropractic care will help your body heal itself so you can live without pain and do the things you want to.
