Q: What is Chiropractic?

A: Chiropractors detect and remove subluxations. A Subluxation [suhb-luhk-sey-shuhn] is when your spinal bones (vertebrae) move out of alignment due to trauma or everyday repetitive stresses. You may not even feel it, but it may still be there. This can put pressure on or irritate the spinal nerves that come out between each vertebra. It then causes nerve dysfunction and interference of signals sent over those nerves.

Q: Why do you need chiropractic when you’re NOT in pain?

A: After years of stress to your spine, pain is usually the last thing that results from dysfunction and trauma. So when your pain disappears, it doesn't mean the cause of your problem has been corrected since the problem has taken so long to manifest. Subluxations lead to overall body dysfunction and in their later stages may cause pain. Few things as complicated as your body can be "fixed" and then ignored. That's why your chiropractic doctor may recommend a schedule of regular chiropractic checkups.

Q: How does a subluxation affect You?

A: Your nervous system controls and coordinates all of your bodily functions. If signals traveling over our nerves are interfered with, altered or decreased nerve messages will be sent to your body. This doesn't allow your body to function to the best of its ability- at 100%! Chiropractic care realigns your spine and helps your body clear the way for your nervous system to send signals between your brain and your body again!!

Q: What is wellness and how can I achieve it?

A: A wellness approach to better health means adopting a variety of healthy habits for optimum function on all levels - physical, mental, social, and spiritual. Because of its focus on the nervous system, chiropractic care can be an important part of a wellness lifestyle. The nervous system controls the function of virtually every aspect of our lives. Maintaining a properly functioning nervous system is essential if you want to be your very best. Those who want to be their very best, add regular chiropractic care to their other health practices. The pleasant result is often more vitality, endurance, and the capacity to enjoy life to its fullest.
