Chiropractic theory states that when the spine is in alignment, information and energy is able to freely move throughout the body, optimizing health. Without proper alignment our bodies can not support proper communication of brain functions through our nerves to our other bodily systems, causing us to perform at less than our peak potential.
Chiropractic adjustments apply manual pressure to unlock joints and assist them back into their proper place. A typical adjustment may involve slow, constant pressure or a quick controlled thrust. One to several areas may be adjusted. As always, all adjustments are tailored to your size, age and particular health issue.
Overall, adjustments are an excellent way to keep the body functioning at its highest level. When the body is in alignment, the body is able to respond and perform as it was designed to.
