A chiropractor uses spinal adjustments to correct misalignments (called subluxations) and restore proper function to the nervous system. This helps the body to heal naturally. Chiropractic doesn’t use drugs or surgery. Instead, a chiropractic spinal adjustment-the application of a precise force to a specific part of the spinal segment-corrects the misalignment. This permits normal nerve transmission and helps the body to recuperate on its own.

Similar to the regular maintenance of your teeth and gums that avoids dental issues, regular Chiropractic Care avoids malfunction of the spine. These subluxations create interference in your nervous system. Like tooth decay that comes from neglect, subluxations are often preventable.
Many adults suffer from subluxations that don’t translate into immediate pain or symptoms that may have started in childhood.
Benefits Children as Well as Adults
Chiropractic care is for children as well as adults. Children typically grow up with the inevitable falls, jolts, slips, and bumps, all of which may cause subluxations. The pains associated with these are soon forgotten, but the nervous system interference remains. Here are just a few of the more common children’s conditions that may improve with Chiropractic Care:
