Chiropractic is a means to decrease pressure on your nervous system. By improving the mobility in the joints of the spine through chiropractic adjustments, pressure will decrease on your spinal cord and spinal nerves. Since the nervous system controls every function in your body, the decreased pressure on your nervous system will result in a healthier, stronger, more vibrant person. Many people seek chiropractic care as a means to decrease pain. Certainly, decreasing pressure on your nervous system can, and many times does, decrease pain symptoms. However, chiropractic care is not a treatment for pain, but rather an attempt to allow the innate intelligence in your body to heal itself.
