Chiropractic case is based on a simple but powerful premise. With a normally functioning spine and healthy nerve system, your body is better able to heal itself. That's because your spine houses and protects your nervous system, which controls feeling, movement, and all function throughout your body. When under the proper control of your nervous system, all the cells, tissues, and organs of your body have the best chance to function optimally. If you have a vertebral subluxation putting pressure on a spinal nerve, there can be a decrease in the communication between the brain and whatever that nerve goes to. The chiropractic care approach to better health is to locate and correct subluxations, so that you can have optimal function of your nervous system, and therefore your body.
