What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a method of care that deals with the treatment of the neuro-musculoskeletal system.
The What? Let's break it down.
Neuro = of or dealing with the nerves
Musculo = of or dealing with the muscles
Skeletal = of or dealing with the bones
Back pain is only one of many conditions a chiropractor treats.
Chiropractors treat any condition in the body that deals with nerves, muscles, or bones and their interactions with each other. One of the main areas where these components interact is at the joints. If anyone component is malfunctioning our ability to move and live pain-free is compromised. Imagine a joint like your knee. Without the proper nerve supply, the muscles at the knee could not contract properly and keep you stable. Without adequate muscle tone, you would face a similar problem, an unstable knee. And without strong bones, you could suffer from instability or even a bone fracture. Whenever a lapse in normal function occurs pain also occurs.
Our bodies are well-designed structures but occasionally there are breakdowns in that structure. Chiropractic care can help ensure that your nerves, muscles, and bones (your structure) are strong and functioning well.
