How does chiropractic work?

Most people consult chiropractors with pain somewhere in their spine or limbs. Deeper questioning of the patient often reveals ailments such as headaches, back weakness, pins and needles, stiffness, or lack of flexibility.

All can be attributable to the irritation of the nerve at the level of the spine, i.e. a subluxation. Subluxation is the result of a joint and disc holding improper movement causing inflammation.

Chiropractors resolve subluxation through spinal adjustments. As joints and discs use movement to receive nutrition, spinal adjustments will restore movement and allow joints to heal with high levels of nutrition.

Spinal adjustments are gentle, specific movements of the spinal joint which train the joint how to move correctly again.
