What Causes Pain?
The nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves) controls every function of your body through nerve signals. The spinal cord is located within the spine. The brain sends nerve signals through the spinal cord to the different parts of the body via nerves.
Misalignment of the spine can cause interference of the signal, which may lead to symptoms such as headaches, neck, shoulder and low back pain.
Misalignments of the spine can be caused by accidents, falls, stress, tension and many other factors.
What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a scientifically based health care discipline that focuses on the detection and correction of spinal misalignments without drugs or surgery. Although the primary focus is on the spine, other joints of the body can also be manipulated. Doctors of Chiropractic are specially trained in the evaluation and correction of spinal misalignments primarily through specific spinal adjustments using their hands or specialized instruments.
Doctors of Chiropractic use traditional diagnostic testing methods such as x-rays, CT scan, MRI, and other tests to properly assess if it is safe to perform a spinal adjustment.
