The health of your spine and nervous system is the foundation of your overall health.
The reason why Doctors of Chiropractic focus on the spine and nervous system to help optimize healing is very simple: your spine is the core structure of your body and directly affects the nervous system.
The Vital Connection: Nerve Supply is Life Supply
The nervous system is the master controlling system, that coordinates all body functions.
Picture an extremely complicated communication network or wiring system sending and receiving messages to and from all of your cells, organs and body parts—automatically, thousands of times per second. This network consists of your brain (master supercomputer), spinal cord (the body’s lifeline) and nerves (wires).
The nervous system is protected by a series of highly moveable bones called the spinal column.
Daily stresses, like sitting for long hours with poor posture, slips and falls, sports activities, car accidents, heavy school bags, work deadlines, projects, financial worries, chemical irritants, even the birth process can cause the spinal bones to silently and painlessly misalign. This is known as VERTEBRAL SUBLUXATION.
Subluxations interfere with the flow of life through the nervous system, greatly weakening the body from the inside out, and often this can occur for a long time without pain. Subluxation can lead to a variety of symptoms and health breakdowns.

Doctors of Chiropractic are the only healthcare providers that specialize in locating and correcting subluxations.
Through chiropractic adjustments, home exercise and possibly home traction (and other supportive procedures) we can correct your subluxations, and help you to recover and experience optimal health.
One of the earliest signs of subluxation and nerve dysfunction can be poor posture.
The first step in determining if chiropractic is right for you is scheduling a comprehensive, no obligation spinal checkup.
