Developed over 100 years ago, this conservative, drug-free, surgery-free approach to optimal health is based on the premise that the relationship between the body's structure and function is a significant factor on your health.

Chiropractic is a healing discipline firmly grounded in science. Although its main focus is the relationship between the skeleton (particularly the spine) and the nervous system that runs through it, chiropractic is concerned with the care of the entire body.

Chiropractors use various diagnostics methods, including x-rays,
to discover the state of your health paying particular attention to your
spine and bone structure. Spinal adjustments, rehabilitative exercises,
passive soft tissue therapies and recommendations regarding nutritional
and lifestyle modifications are their primary methods of helping your body
heal itself.

Every cell in your body has a nerve that goes to it. The same nerve
that goes to a muscle or skin cell also goes to the organs, glands,
tissues and blood vessels in that area. Your brain and central nervous
system control how all parts and systems of your body perform their functions. Irritated nerves can cause functional problems like headaches, fatigue, sinus allergies and sleep problems, irritability and digestive problems. It can cause sensory problems like pain, tension, tingling and numbness.

How chiropractic works is similar to removing a pebble from a shoe.

Have you ever had a pebble in your shoe? A tiny pebble, because of its constant irritation of a nerve, can drive you crazy. At first it feels like a pressure, then an irritation, and finally, pain.

So what did you do about the pebble? You took your shoe off and took it out, right?

Taking pain killing medication for a pebble in your shoe would be ridiculous, wouldn't it? It's not logical to treat a physical problem with a chemical solution!
