Chiropractic is the art, science, and philosophy of addressing spinal misalignments known as vertebral subluxation complexes. Chiropractic has been around since 1895.
Chiropractors are BRAIN doctors, not pain doctors! The brain and spinal cord control all functions of the body and delegate 70% of the work to our autonomic or “automatic” nervous system, the part of the brain we don’t have to consciously control or think about. Pulse, breathing rate, and digestion are a few examples of the automatic nervous system.
Healing takes place under the parasympathetic nervous system and emergencies are handled by the sympathetic nervous system. We need both systems to survive but they need to be balanced.
The brain and spinal cord are protected by the skull and vertebral column. 90% of the energy the brain needs to regulate our bodies comes from the motion of the spine. If the spine is moving properly, we experience health and healing.
Physical, chemical and emotional stress causes brain and neurologic inflammation and stress. The more inflammation and stress we have, the faster brain and spinal degeneration occur.
Vertebral subluxations are misalignments of the individual vertebral segments that cause loss of motion. The more subluxations present, the less motion we have in our spines. The less motion we have in the spine, the less energy the brain has to control our bodies. The less brain energy we have, the faster brain and spine deteriorate and we become sicker and sicker.
