Many people are still not exactly sure what it is that chiropractors do, they just know that it has something to do with “popping” your neck or back to relieve pain. And while it is true that chiropractic is very effective in helping people get over their aches and pains, that is not all that it can do. There is an understanding in chiropractic that our central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) is the master system and controller of all other functions in the body. This system is protected by our skull and spinal column. When there are misalignments in the spinal bones protecting this system, what chiropractors call a subluxation; it interferes with the normal transmission of nerve impulses and creates a lack of communication between the central nervous system and the rest of the body. If these subluxations remain uncorrected, eventually it will lead to pain and other symptoms including headaches, heartburn, indigestion, and sinus problems to name a few. So, our job is to find and correct subluxations, restoring proper nerve function which allows the body to express its natural healing abilities and leads to an improvement in overall health.
