This question on the surface seems simple. However, with the complexities of the human body and the individual differences each of us bring to our circumstances, it can seem very complicated. Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing, self regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down the spinal cord and out to every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain confirm if your body is working right. Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine is called a subluxation and can interfere with this vital exchange by irritating nerves and compromising the function of affected organs and tissues. Specific spinal adjustments can help improve mind/body communications. Health often returns with improved nervous system control of the body.
