What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a form of health care that concentrates on the adjustment of spine and nerve stress like vertebral subluxation complex, a condition that puts pressure on nerves, unbalances your body, lowers your resistance to disease, and weakens you.

How does chiropractic work?

Chiropractors analyze your body for vertebral subluxation, a severe form of spine and nerve stress.
Then they relieve any spinal nerve stress by performing various spinal adjustment techniques using their hands and other analysis tools.

Treatments are performed by working with the bones and nerves of the spinal column and spinal cord. Chiropractors spend years of vigorous training to locate misplaced spinal vertebrae impinging the nerves that travel down the spinal cord and out through the spinal columns reaching the muscles, organs, and glands of the body. After those vertebrae impinging the nerves are located, the chiropractor will perform a spinal adjustment to shift the misplaced vertebrae using various highly specialized techniques to release the pressure on the nerves.


Subluxations are the result of stress, but they can occur in infancy from difficult birth or childhood falls. In time, stress and emotional tension can gradually damage your spine or violent injuries can suddenly intensify its condition.

Eventually, almost everyone gets spinal nerve stress and so is affected by subluxations. It's a silent epidemic, that is why we all need to have our spines checked by a chiropractor for this condition every once in a while just like a regular dental checkup.

All kinds of conditions are treated with chiropractic care such as:

  • Colds
  • Ear infections
  • PMS
  • Spinal or disc problems
  • Arthritis
  • Migraines
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Pregnancy and labor
  • Vision problems
  • Headaches
  • Allergies
  • High blood pressure
  • Insomnia
  • Stress
  • Sciatica
  • Sinus pain
Please remember, the goal of chiropractic treatment is not the treatment of disease but rather the enhancement of health through the reduction of spinal nerve stress (vertebrae subluxation complex).

The above list may seem long as though chiropractic were a panacea. The truth is that most textbooks list over two hundred diseases. Please be mindful of the fact that chiropractic care is not like one drug used for one condition, but on the contrary, it is a complete healing art within itself, concerned with the systems of the body such as nervous, circulatory, digestive, respiratory, eliminatory, reproductive, hormonal, musculoskeletal, and seeks to correct health problems within those systems.

You can receive chiropractic treatments even if under medical care.

It is important to have your spinal nerve stress corrected no matter what other type of care you are receiving. You can have your spinal column checked by a chiropractor for vertebral subluxations. MD's and other healers are not trained in detecting and correcting spinal nerve stress. Chiropractic should be a part of your family's health care regimen to obtain optimal wellness and prevent disease.
