In science, we know that the nervous system is the most important system in the human body. It controls every function and sensation in the body. Now, think about what would happen to your body and health in general, if your nervous system was not functioning properly, or as well as it could be. Having a healthy nervous system, without any nerve interference (pressure on the nerves) will increase the ability of the body to adapt to its environment in a healthy manner, keeping you functioning and feeling your best!
-Hippocrates, Father of Medicine
The philosophy of chiropractic is the “why”? Chiropractic works hand in hand with nature and the power that created us, humans. Every person is born with an innate intelligence- this is the natural, inborn intelligence that transforms you from a fetus to a full grown adult, with the most complex systems all working perfectly in harmony together to keep us alive. Chiropractic has one main goal, and that is to remove the interference, thus allowing the body to heal itself, as it was intended!
The art of giving a chiropractic adjustment is a skill that takes a lot of practice and time. There is a difference between pushing or twisting on an area in the spine to make a “cracking” sound, versus analyzing and being very specific when delivering an adjustment. The art of the adjustment is being able to determine which vertebrae to adjust, the direction and the depth- all done with intent and purpose to target the level that is the root cause of the problem and not any areas of compensation.
