Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the body’s structure-mainly the spine-and it’s functioning. Chiropractors primarily perform adjustments (spinal manipulations) to the spine and other parts of the body with the goal of correcting alignment problems, alleviating pain, improving function and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
While most people commonly seek chiropractic care for back pain, there are many more reasons as to why one should see a chiropractor. By correcting the misalignment in the spine, the spinal nerves that branch from the spine to the organs and extremities are relieved of pressure that once inhibited nerve impulses. By relieving the pressure on the nerve, impulses are able to function correctly, thus correcting the dysfunction in organs, extremities and our immune system.
