Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that your nervous system controls the function of virtually every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. Therefore, any interference to the nervous system can cause a variety of health problems ranging from neck, back and limb pain to headaches and digestive problems. The spine and its joints house the nervous system and many everyday activities can cause spinal bones to lose their normal position or motion, creating nerve interferences (which are called subluxations). The role of the chiropractor is to detect and correct these subluxations in order to restore function to the nervous system. Your consultation will include a comprehensive history and examination including postural analysis, muscle testing, muscle and joint motion, neurological analysis and palpation of the spine and related areas. Based on the examination findings, the chiropractor will propose a tailored treatment plan.
