What Is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractors focus on the nervous system. The brain sends messages through the spinal cord to spinal nerves that deliver energy to every cell, organ and system in the body. When bones of the spine are misaligned or move out of their normal position, this is called a subluxation. These misalignment causes nerve interference that impacts your overall health.
