CHIROPRACTIC is a science and art which concerns itself with the relationship between the spine and the nervous system. When any part of the spine is not moving properly, it causes interference in the nervous system that will affect the restoration or preservation of health. This can lead to pain, dysfunction, or may be entirely asymptomatic
HEALTH is a state of optimal physical, mental, and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
PAIN is not a symptom and CANNOT be treated. Pain is a signal sent from the brain to allow one to know that there is a problem somewhere in the body. When the problem is fixed, the pain signals will stop firing.
An ADJUSTMENT is a specific application of force to correct a restricted joint performed by a Doctor of Chiropractic.
ANCILLARY PROCEDURES (physiotherapies) can be performed prior to or following the chiropractic adjustment to aid in the healing process.
