How Does Chiropractic Work?
Chiropractors analyze your body for vertebral subluxation, a severe form of spine and nerve stress.
Then they relieve any spinal nerve stress by performing various spinal adjustment techniques using their hands and other analysis tools.
Treatments are performed by working with the bones and nerves of the spinal column and spinal cord. Chiropractors spend years of vigorous training to locate misplaced spinal vertebrae impinging the nerves that travel down the spinal cord and out through the spinal columns reaching the muscles, organs, and glands of the body. After those vertebrae impinging the nerves are located, the chiropractor will perform a spinal adjustment to shift the misplaced vertebrae using various highly specialized techniques to release the pressure on the nerves.

Subluxations are the result of stress, but they can occur in infancy from difficult birth or childhood falls. In time, stress and emotional tension can gradually damage your spine or violent injuries can suddenly intensify its condition.
Eventually, almost everyone gets spinal nerve stress and so is affected by subluxations. It’s a silent epidemic, that is why we all need to have our spines checked by a chiropractor for this condition every once in a while just like a regular dental checkup.
