It is National Chiropractic Health Month, and we will be talking a lot about the health benefits of chiropractic. This will be a great time to share educational information with your friends and family. When you recieve a chiropractic adjustment, your body responds in a way that you do not even realize.
  • Internal joint pressure immediately decreases
  • Excess nerve impulses are immediately decreased
  • Normal nerve firing is restored
  • Organs normalize
  • Muscles strengthen

The chiropractic adjustment is the most important treatment that chiropractors perform. The adjustment's goal is to reduce or eliminate the subluxation. Simply put, a subluxation is a bone that is out of place that affects a nerve. This causes the subluxation to affect what ever is at the end of that nerve. This is why the chiropractic adjustment has such far reaching affects on your health, because eliminating subluxations improves the health of any tissue, organs or cells that are at the end of that nerve.
