Chiropractic is a healing art that recognizes the body's natural inborn ability to heal. The basic tenant of chiropractic is that the nervous system is the master-controller of the human body and a person’s health. The nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. It regulates all life-sustaining functions such as movement, blood circulation, digestion, breathing, and immunity from disease. Because of the intimate anatomic relationship between the spine and the nervous system, abnormalities of spinal alignment or function can effect nerves, as well as the organs, tissues and cells they control. Chiropractic corrects those abnormalities, removes road-blocks and promotes normal nerve function. Thanks to our miraculous nervous system, living in good health is possible - our digestive system automatically converts our meals into living tissue; our lungs automatically take in and extract oxygen from air; cuts and wounds automatically heal; and invading germs are automatically attacked and destroyed. Whenever the nervous system is functioning properly, optimum health is possible.
