What is Chiropractic?
     There's nothing mysterious about Chiropractic.  Chiropractic is based on a simple but powerful truth.  The brain controls and coordinates virtually all functions of the human body by sending information down the spinal cord and out to every area of the body through the spinal nerves. Because of the close relationship between the bones of the spine (vertebrae) and the spinal nerves, small misalignments of the vertebra (subluxations) can cause irritation or interference to the spinal nerves resulting in pain and/or dysfunction.  Research has shown that even small amounts of pressure or irritation on spinal nerves can lead to serious problems.  Chiropractic is the only health profession which detects and corrects subluxations and it is done without drugs or surgery.   Very simply stated, the body functions better without nerve irritation and is then more capable of healing itself...just the way God designed it, naturally.
     Chiropractic is often mistakenly thought of as just a treatment for back pain, neck pain or other types of pain. While it is true Chiropractors are very effective in treating such conditions, it is important to realize that Chiropractic has far more to offer than just pain relief.  Studies have found Chiropractic to be effective in managing conditions like headaches, allergies, asthma, PMS, infertility, colic, ear infections and more.

"The Doctor of the future will give no medicine, 
but will interest his patients in the care 
of the human frame, in diet, and in the 
cause and prevention of disease."
- Thomas A. Edison
Safe and Natural.
Doesn't it make sense to start with the most conservative treatment possible?  Rather than prescribing drugs or surgery, Chiropractic works to treat problems at their source and restore function naturally.  If the problem stems from, or is complicated by, a misaligned vertebra, how will taking a pain pill or muscle relaxer help?  
From a safety standpoint, studies have shown Chiropractic to be significantly safer than taking over-the-counter pain medications and even more so when compared to most medical procedures.  Malpractice rates for Chiropractors are a fraction of those paid by medical doctors further demonstrating the safety of this natural approach.
