Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and all of the nerves in your body. It is involved in the control and function of your entire body. Your brain, which communicates with the rest of the body sends messages through the spinal cord. The brain is protected by the skull. Your spinal cord is vulnerable. It is protected by the 24 moving bones of your spinal column. Nerves branch off the spinal cord between each spinal joint.
The nerves travel to the organs and tissues of your body. Improper motion or position of the spinal bones can irritate these delicate nerves. This interferes with the function of the tissues they control. Doctors of Chiropractic call this a subluxation. When malfunction occurs to the spine there is nervous system interference.
Frequently asked questions about Chiropractic:
Do Chiropractor's prescribe drugs or surgical procedures?
No drugs, medications, or surgeries are performed by the Doctor of Chiropractic. Doctors of Chiropractic focus on restoring proper function as a way of pain relief and optimal health. In many cases, drugs are used to cover up your pain but do nothing to "fix" the cause of your problem.
What is Chiropractic, and how does it play a role in our health ?
Health, as defined by Dorlands Medical Dictionary, is normal state of mental, social, spirtual and physical well being, not merely the absence of disease and infirmatory, or nomal function. Chiropractic is primarily about wellness. Whereas medicine has historically been concerned with treating sickness and disease, chiropractic care historically was focused on helping the body function better. Specifically, this is done by identifying spinal misalignment or dysfunction and working towards correction of it. This correction reduces stress on the spinal nerves and entire nervous system; thus allowing the body's inherent healing abilities and normal health systems to fully express themselves. Chiropractic involves aligning the spine, so that our bodies function at 100%. Subluxation is a misalignment of the spine that puts pressure or causes irriation to the nervous system. It can be caused by poor posture, poor sleeping habits, strenous exercise, injuries stemming from poor working conditions, sports, slips or fall, even the birthing process itself for the mother and for the child.

Most insurance policies cover chiropractic care. Recent articles published in the Journal for Managed Care cited chiropractic care as being more cost effective than conventional medical therapies in treating low back pain.
