What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is the science, art and philosophy of the restoration of good health by restoring and maintaining a properly functioning nerve system without drugs or surgery.
Correcting nerve interference
A central premise of chiropractic is that vertebral misalignments or malfunctions in the spine can produce interferences in the function of the nerve system, which impair your health and performance. These misalignments are called subluxations and are corrected with spinal adjustments administered by Doctors of Chiropractic (D.C.s).
Doctors of Chiropractic locate subluxations and reduce or correct them through a series of chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractors are the only professionals who undergo years of training to be the experts at correcting subluxations.

Benefits go beyond your back
Chiropractic is about having a healthy spine and nerve system so your body can be as healthy as possible.
Beyond lower back pain, chiropractic helps many 'non back' problems such as premenstrual syndrome (PMS), carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, crohn's disease, gall bladder problems, heart problems, asthma, allergies, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and other lung problems.
A balanced nerve system
Your body is controlled by three distinct nerve systems: the central nerve system, peripheral nerve system, and autonomic nerve system (which is further divided into the parasympathetic and sympathetic nerve system). All three must be balanced so they can operate in unity and create a truly healthy body.
If the signals traveling over your nerves are interfered with, your body will not get the proper nerve messages and cannot function at 100%. In other words, some part of your body will not be working properly.
The nerve irritation caused by subluxation leads to exaggerated activity of the nerve, resulting in muscular tension, postural asymmetries, and limited and painful motion. Other problems include chronic hyperactivity of the sympathetic nerve system, producing a variety of syndromes.
