Short Description of Chiropractic, the Human Body, and it's Nervous System: The human brain communicates with its body through the nervous system and spinal cord. The spinal cord is protected by the spine and allows nerves to leave and communicate with organs, muscles, etc. atall levels of the spine. When a bone(s) in your spine become misaligned (this can happen with even simple activities such as sleep and work) the nerves that are located around that bone become irritated and do not communicate properly. This can not only cause pain but will alter the way your whole body functions. Chiropractic is focused on correcting these misalignments (or subluxations) and allowing the nervous system to work/function at 100%.
