In today's age, many people are becoming more aware and conscious of their health. Because of the increasing number of deaths through chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, cancer, over medication, etc., and with the sky rocketing costs of health care, people are looking for ways to live a healthier life style more naturally.
Chiropractic doctors specialize in detecting and correcting vertebral subluxations. When the vertebrae is misaligned, it puts pressure on the nerves and irritates it, therefore interferes with the mental impulses coming to and from the brain. This then can cause many problems later down the road and manifests as different symptoms that many people complain of. Subluxations can also cause degeneration of the spine. When the spine degenerates, the disc spaces gets narrowed, bone spurs starts to grow out of the vertebrae which can then irritate the exiting nerves, as well as the surrounding soft tissues. Inflammation occurs and this is what is commonly known as osteoarthritis.
Chiropractic is a natural approach to health without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractic adjustments are administered by introducing a very gentle force into the spine to activate mechanoreceptors and reset the spine back into proper position, freeing up nerve irritation and nerve intereference, thus initiating healing.
More and more people nowadays are using chiropractic as part of their healthy life style because it makes them feel better with more energy throughout the week, they function better, and they become more aware of their body.
