Chiropractic (ki”ro-prak”tik) – Chiropractic is a philosophy, science and art of things natural; a system of adjusting the segments of the spinal column by hand only, for the correction of the cause of disease.
Subluxation (sub”luk-sa’shun) – Any vertebrae which has lost its proper juxta-position with the bone above, below, or both, which impinges on a nerve and interferes with mental impulses. That is, a spinal misalignment or malfunction that doesn’t allow your body’s communication system to work properly.
Chiropractic is based on the understanding that our bodies are in a continuous state of healing. Healing takes place in all living people. This healing is directed by the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). This is the focus of the chiropractor; to make sure the communication is open from the brain to the body and from the body back to the brain.
We detect subluxations in the spine which can hinder these communications. Removing subluxations will allow the body to work better.
