Chiropractic is a total and preventive approach to health that focuses on the aspect of wellness rather than disease. Chiropractors focus on the nervous system, which controls all aspects of the body. The brain sends messages to the spinal cord across a huge network of spinal nerves to deliver the information to every cell, organ, and system in the body. The central nervous system consists of brain and spinal cord. The peripheral nervous system is a serious of nerves by which the central nervous system is connected to various tissues of body. A misalignment of the spine can hinder the body’s function. Such a misalignment is referring to as a “subluxation.” Chiropractic manages the body’s ability to heal itself or maintain good health if there is no misalignment in the spine. A healthy nervous system equals a healthy body. Chiropractors perform spinal adjustment with their hands as their main tools. Spinal adjustment is application of precious force to a specific part of the spinal segment. The goal is to restore normal nerve transmission as assist the body to re-corporate on its own. Chiropractic focuses on maintaining optimal health naturally without use of drug or surgery. Rather than treating the symptoms of disease, chiropractors help the body help itself by allowing the body to work on its optimal best. From children to older adults, chiropractic can help improve the immune system, decrease pain, and maintain good health. Chiropractic is a part of a healthy life style for all ages.
