Chiropractic has been constantly evolving since it was established in 1895. Many people use chiropractic care for different reasons. Some are pain based symptoms, while others are wellness based. Before we answer this we must first understand the nervous system.
Our central nervous system (CNS) includes our brain and our spinal cord. The CNS controls and regulates our entire body, from the movement of the muscles to the beating of the heart. The CNS is encased and protected by our spinal column.
Chiropractors are trained extensively to evaluate the spinal column and to remove a subluxation by adjusting the vertebrae. Subluxation is a misalignment of the vertebrae that produces nerve irritation or interference. When the CNS is able to operate without interference our whole body works better. A person can have subluxations with no apparent signs or symptoms.
Is your nervous system working properly?
