HUMAN CHIROPRACTIC CARE
Chiropractic care is the use of adjustments, whether by hand or with an instrument
(Activator), that helps to realign the spine and allow the nervous system to work in its optimal capacity. By doing this, the body can do exactly what it was designed to do, which is heal itself. Misalignments, or subluxations, to the spine occur due to traumas (micro- as in repetitive motions or macro- such as auto accidents), toxins (what we either put into or breathe into our bodies) and thoughts (stressors, whether emotional, physical or spiritual that tighten the muscles and cause trigger points). Chiropractic care boosts the immune system, helps to regulate the body's digestive and cardiovascular systems and strengthens the musculoskeletal system by correcting posture and relieving stress on joints.
