Treatment is based on Chiropractic Philosophy that all living organisms are self-regulating and healing entities. Self-Regulations and Healing is done via the connection between the brain and the body. The Central Nervous System (CNS, the brain and spinal cord) extends out of the spine and connects to every aspect of the body through the Peripheral Nervous System. Any hindrance in this connection is due to "Subluxations" which affects Self-Regulation and Healing. Chiropractic therapy is designed in locating and removing subluxations with a specific force, restoring the body's optimal potential in Self-Regulation and Healing. This Promotes faster healing time and optimal health.
Note: Your Immune System is also a part of your Nervous System. Having a healthy spine promotes a healthier Nervous System which in effect promotes a healthier Immune System.
