A Hands-on Approach
Chiropractic treatment is a hands-on approach to natural healing. It does not involve treatment using drugs and surgery. Chiropractors treat the nervous system by adjusting subluxations (joint dysfunction) which cause nerve interference and contribute to poor health.
Chiropractors use their hands and some instruments to perform an adjustment. The adjustment involves a gentle, quick movement directed at the vertebrae to improve position and function. This reduces the subluxation and the interference to the nerves. Getting you healthy takes time. Why?
Subluxations, if left alone over time will lead to joint dysfunction & degeneration. A course of regular adjustments is necessary, just like regular exercise is necessary to correct the problem and balance the nervous system. Many patients come to the chiropractor after having neglegted their spine for many years. It takes time to get sick and therefore it takes time to get healthy.
