Chiropractic, developed by Daniel David Palmer in 1895, began in Davenport, Iowa and has grown throughout the world to become the number one and fastest growing natural healthcare profession servicing millions of human beings in practically every country around the world.

Chiropractic is based on three essential healing principles:

• The human body is self healing.
• The nerve system directs all control and healing of the entire body.
• A problem called a “subluxation” interrupts the control of the nerve system.

Doctors of chiropractic spend over 4,000 hours to earn their degrees as primary health care providers fully licensed and board certified so that they are able to detect and correct these abnormalities of the spine called “subluxations”.

Subluxations interrupt the normal transmissions of electrical nerve impulses coming from the brain on their way out to the body, the result is a reduction of power to the effected tissue causing it to function and heal abnormally.

This can have serious life threatening effects in the body since every cell, tissue, and organ are completely dependent on the brain for the electricity necessary to function and heal properly. By releasing this hold on your nerve system a flood of nerve power is set free in your body enabling anyone to heal and reach levels of health previously unattainable by reconnecting the brain's communication to the body.

The best part is that Chiropractic's safety record is second to none, resulting in the lowest malpractice insurance among all primary care doctors and a treatment that is completely natural. Chiropractic has been "going green" for decades!!

What is Subluxation?
In simplest terms, a subluxation (a.k.a. Vertebral Subluxation) is when one or more of the 24 bones of your spine (vertebrae) move out of position and create pressure on, or irritate spinal nerves. Spinal nerves are the nerves that come out from between each of the bones in your spine. This pressure or irritation on the nerves then causes those nerves to malfunction and interfere with the signals traveling through those nerves.

Subluxations are commonly caused by stress from poor posture, poor sleeping habits, slips and falls, auto accidents, sports impacts, strenuous exercise, work injuries, childhood falls, medication and substance abuse, and even the birth process.

How does this affect you? Your nervous system controls and coordinates all the functions of your body. If you interfere with the signals traveling over nerves, parts of your body will not get the proper nerve messages and will not be able to function at 100% of their innate abilities. In other words, some part of your body will not be working properly.

Chiropractic treatments called spinal adjustments are comfortable, safe, and highly effective. People of all ages, including infants and the elderly, can receive chiropractic care to get healthy and stay healthy.
