Your body was created to have the natural ability to heal itself. When you cut your finger, you don’t have to tell your body how to rejuvenate.  When two cells come together to form a new life, no drug or doctor has to tell the embryo how to become a perfect complex human.  You have an innate intelligence within you.  Your body is continually communicating with this intelligence via your Nervous System, and when this communication has no interference, you are able to adapt and integrate the stresses of life. The functions of the body, even many of those that we perceive to be negative, are for very wise and protective purposes.

When physical, chemical and emotional stresses exceed our ability to adapt, that stress becomes stored in our Neurospinal system and vital information between brain and body becomes disconnected.

Chiropractic care is a drug‐free, non‐surgical approach to healing and wellness. Chiropractors go to the root of the problem by looking to the spine and removing interference from the spine with controlled techniques called an adjustment, which restores health and heals injuries.

A Chiropractic Adjustment is a minor movement of vertebrae in the spine that has been subluxated or misaligned. The objective is to realign the vertebrae to proper position taking pressure off of the nervous system allowing the body to properly function and heal from Above, Down, Inside‐Out.

An adjustment is often pressure from the Chiropractor utilizing the hands or an instrument to move the vertebrae back into place. This happens with a quick movement and often without discomfort. You may hear a noise that sounds like a ‘crack,’ we refer to this as a joint cavitation. It is the release of gases, such as oxygen and nitrogen from the joint. Adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level. When your body is in alignment, it can express itself in its full potential.

A subluxation is a misaligned vertebrae or joint that does not allow for proper movement and cuts off communication between your brain and your body. Subluxations can be caused by chemical, physical, and/or emotional stress. This ranges from bad posture to car accidents to not sleeping properly to stressing about a work day. If subluxations remain untreated, the spine and surrounding features, such as discs, begin to degenerate. This degeneration becomes more difficult to reverse as time goes on due to muscle spasms that have developed along with the nerves and bones taking on a new and improper position.

To remove subluxations or a misalignment between the joints, Chiropractors use an adjustment.
