Chiropractic care is based on the scientific fact that the nervous system controls all functions of the body. When a spinal bone or vertebra loses it's proper function and puts pressure on the nervous system, this is called "subluxation". Subluxations can be caused by chemical (smoking or other poisons), mechanical (trauma or repetitive stress forces) or emotional (mental stress). When these "subluxations" create pressure on the nervous system, the body no longer functions at it's highest level.
Chiropractic adjustments restore spinal function, and remove nerve interference thus allowing optimal nervous system function and improved health.
