Chiropractors are specialists in the detection and the treatment of subluxations.
Subluxation—a condition involving misaligned or poorly moving joints.
Subluxated joints cause interference to the nervous system by choking, pinching, or inhibiting nerves. This interference decreases the nerve supply from the brain to the body and back to the brain.
Think of what happens when you decrease electricity to a light bulb. The bulb dims and decreases in function. The same is true with the electrical impulses transmitted through your nerves. If you have subluxations that inhibit the electrical information or nerve supply to your cells, tissues and organs, they will also decrease in function and health.
Because the nervous system controls all others systems, subluxations that choke nerve supply can cause problems in any other system of the body. It is therefore likely that your general health will improve under chiropractic care. Fewer colds, better digestion, more restful sleep, and so on. Like may of my patients, You may choose to continue receiving spinal adjustments on a regular basis in order to prevent future problems and enjoy better health the rest of your life.
