Chiropractic is a form of manual therapy that uses hands-on adjustment of the spine to address pain in joints, ligaments, muscles and nerves. These adjustments work by influencing the nervous system to assist your body’s natural healing capabilities, leading to optimal recovery or improved health.
Although adjustments primarily deal with spinal manipulation, chiropractic can deal with all areas of the body. Every muscle, joint and organ in the body is connected to the brain by nerves — and these nerves get to and from the brain through the spinal column. Even conditions that seem removed from the spine can be positively affected by chiropractic.
