What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a gentle, and natural alternative medicine that allows the practitioner to find, treat, and prevent dysfunction in the body. Our body possesses an innate intelligence, which allows it to heal itself. However, in todays society we're confronted with several types of stress that can hinder the overall health of the body. These stressors include:
- physical: poor posture, falls, accidents...
- chemical: pollution, poor diet, pesticides, gmo's...
- emotional: work, financial, depression, martial...
The accumulation of these stresses creates dysfunction in the body, and prevents the body from healing itself. If this occurs for long enough the body eventually starts to present symptoms. Chiropractors use the term subluxation, to represent an area in the spine where there is tension in the nervous system leading to dysfunction, and pain.
What does a chiropractor do?
A chiropractor focuses, primarily, on the nervous system (which consists of the brain, spinal cord, and the nerves that emerge from the spinal cord). A chiropractor's job is to identify and correct subluxations with adjustments. Adjustments are a technique used only by chiropractors, to remove tension in the nervous system and optimize the function of the body.
