Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system. When your nervous system is functioning properly, your body knows how to heal, regulate, and adapt appropriately to the many stressors of everyday life, allowing you to live your life to the fullest.

When a vertebrae is jarred out of a healthy position, creating swelling, inflammation and ultimately nerve stress, the condition is called vertebral subluxation. The presence of subluxation in your spine interferes with the flow of information through your body, depriving you of the essential element of nerve supply.
In short, subluxation is a misalignment of the spine short of a dislocation.
Chiropractors correct the mechanical stress also known as vertebral subluxation to the spine that causes interference to the flow of information across the complex and sensitive nerve system. This is the same reason why the healthiest families in the world, not to mention elite atheletes like Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods
make regular chiropractic care
part of their health regimen.
It is important to understand why everyone who wishes to be truly healthy needs to get checked regularly to ensure optimal nerve function.
