What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic is the art, science and philosophy of locating and treating vertebral subluxations
through specific chiropractic adjustments that aids your body to function with better potential.
What is a subluxation? Misalignments of one or more of your spinal bones that
causes interference to your nervous system. The nervous system, when interfered with, impairs your
body's natural ability to heal itself along with impeding its ability to function at its maximum potential.
What is an adjustment? A specific thrust delivered by the hands. The goal of
the adjustment is to aid in relieving spinal subluxations.
Do adjustments hurt? Generally chiropractic adjustments feel great. In a very small
fraction of patients, with certain conditions, some very short lived tenderness might be experienced.
The reality is that chiropractors are specially trained so those instances of tenderness is significantly
lower and less invasive than that of other forms of care such as surgery or drugs.
Is chiropractic safe? Statistically, chiropractic is one of the safest forms of
healthcare available. Period! On top of that its cost effective for both short and long termed care.
