Chiropractic care works because you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. Millions of instructions flow from your brain down your spinal cord and out to every organ and tissue in your body.
Signals sent back to your brain confirm that your body is working correctly. Improper motion or position of the movable bones in your spine (vertebrae) can interfere with this vital exchange by irritating the nerves and compromising the function of certain organs and tissues. This is called a "subluxation."
Specific spinal adjustments can help restore the mind/body communications. Health often returns when we improve the nervous system's control of the body.
