Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that the human body is a self-healing, self-regulating organism and is healthy in its natural state. The nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system of the body. If the nervous system is impaired in any way, it can cause malfunction of tissues and organs throughout the body, therefore causing pain and discomfort. Improving the function of the nervous system can help restore the function of the entire body, in turn letting your body restore it’s own inborn ability to heal itself and be healthy.
Chiropractic is a natural method of healing that does not use drugs or surgery; instead chiropractors use massage, physiotherapy (such as ice, heat, and ultrasound), nutrition, exercise rehabilitation and spinal adjustments to treat their patients. This method of treatment helps reduce joint fixations and muscle spasms, thereby reducing pressure on nerves. Chiropractic focuses on treating the cause of physical problems, rather than just treating the symptoms. With a normally functioning spine and healthy lifestyle, your body is better able to heal itself and remain healthy.
