A natural approach to healthcare

​Chiropractic is a form of healthcare that deals with the structure of the spine as a direct relationship to the function of the nervous system. Chiropractors understand that nerves are the primary regulators, controllers and responders to stimulus and they should be considered carefully in the cause of physiological dysfunction, pain and even disease.

Chiropractic is based upon the principle of cause and effect, or stimulus and response. A prime example of unconscious regulation of function by the nervous system would be thermoregulation.  Sweating is your body’s response to stimulus (heat) used to decrease core body temperature, to the contrary, shivering is the mechanism used to increase core body temperature in response to decreased external body temperature.

The nervous system regulates the function of the organism using “divisions” (Somatic vs. Autonomic, or Sympathetic vs. Parasympathetic) which counteract or “regulate” each other- this is the biological principle known as homeostasis. Homeostasis is the tendency toward a relatively stable equilibrium between interdependent elements, especially as maintained by physiological processes. Chiropractors study the nervous system intimately and leverage it to facilitate responses that favor homeostatic balance.

Recently Chiropractic has gained popularity as a safe, cost effective alternative to surgeries, injections, prescription medications and even over-the-counter medications.  Chiropractic is known to be highly effective in the management of musculoskeletal conditions (ex: low back pain, neck pain, headaches, mid back pain)​ and is a great, natural alternative for stress management as well.
