Chiropractic’s basic philosophy is that housed within the cranium and spine, the nervous system controls (or directly affects) nearly every other system. Manual care of this spinal framework can eliminate restrictions that cause interference to our optimal skeletal and nervous system function. Chiropractic, therefore, is the detailed assessment of how the body is functioning from a neuromusculoskeletal perspective. Spinal restrictions, commonly called subluxations, are corrected by manipulation – the gentle popping (releasing) of the restricted joints. Additionally, numerous other therapies can be applied to help the body attain lasting balance.
Because chiropractic treats the spine (body’s main framework), the nervous system, the muscles, and the biomechanics of the extremities, a plethora of conditions can be comprehensively addressed at the root cause. You’ll find that our practice of the chiropractic art will always be directed at addressing the fundamentals of your health concern and restoring homeostasis.
