When a sperm fertilized an ovum and you became you, a genetic blueprint was created that determined the colour of your eyes and millions of other details about you.
To control and organize your growth, the nervous system consisting of your brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of your body were the first tissues formed.
Today your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body.
Your brain is protected by the skull. The vital communication pathway of the spinal cord is vulnerable, covered by 24 moving bones of the spinal column.
Pairs of nerve roots branch off the spinal cord from between each spinal joint to service organs and tissues of your body.
Because of the way your spine is designed, improper motion or position of spinal bones can irritate or choke delicate nerves – interfering with the function of the tissues they control. Chiropractors call this a vertebral subluxation.
Trauma which may occur to the spine from the birth process may be the first source of nervous system interference.
Car accidents, stress, poor diet, long periods of sitting, and many other everyday activities can cause the bones that cover your spinal cord to lose their normal position and motion.
Without a normal nerve supply, organs and tissues may be affected, sometimes producing the symptoms and pain.
Headaches and low back pain can often be traced back to spinal malfunction and nervous system interference.
Doctors of Chiropractic are trained in the detection, reduction, and prevention of nervous system interferences.
Today’s Doctors of Chiropractic undergo a five year university education before starting practice, and they must meet stringent licensing requirements. They must also complete ongoing post graduate studies on a yearly basis.
To determine the cause of your health problem, Chiropractic Doctors examine your spine to locate any areas causing nervous system interference.
You’ll be shown the exact locations of any nervous system interference and get specific recommendations for your Chiropractic Care Program.
Your doctor will use carefully directed and controlled pressure to return malfunctioning spinal bones to their proper motion and position, reducing nerve interference.
This procedure is called a Chiropractic adjustment. There are many ways to adjust the spine. Millions of Chiropractic adjustments are delivered every day.
Chiropractic adjustments are extremely safe.
Even newborns receive Chiropractic adjustments.
Regardless of the type of doctor you consult, doctors don’t heal. Healing comes from within.
The Chiropractic approach to better health is to allow the body to function normally by removing interferences to your nervous system.
Chiropractic makes sense. There is a growing body of scientific evidence supporting Chiropractic care. It’s provided by well-educated doctors. It’s extremely safe. It’s natural. It looks to correct the underlying cause(s) of your problem. And most important – it works.
IT’S AS SIMPLE AS THAT!
