Chiropractic has been around since 1895 and there are still many people that only associate us with “cracking backs” and getting rid of back pain. Don’t get me wrong- we adjust the spine and we do a great job at getting rid of back pain! But there is a so much more to it than that. We have our brain and it is what runs the show. It communicates with the rest of the body by way of the spinal cord and spinal nerves.Our spine is made up of 24 movable segments called vertebrae. They make up our spinal column which protects our spinal cord. In between each vertebrae there is a space for the spinal nerve to exit and communicate with a particular organ, muscle, tissue or cell.When there is misalignment, that communication is interrupted and it is called a subluxation. Chiropractors find the subluxations by analyzing the spine, making a specific adjustment and allowing the body to heal from the inside, out. My patients are always fascinated when they see the chart of the autonomic nervous system and which nerves go to all the different organs. They start to see a bigger picture as to what conditions could be improved if the subluxations were corrected. Connecting the brain to the body, and the body to the brain thus optimizing health from the inside, out. Drug-free and 100% natural. Wow, now that just makes sense if you have a spine to get it checked out.
