Chiropractic is based on the idea of removing imbalances, both structural and postural, in an effort to allow our body to heal itself. For this to happen the nerves and signals from your brain down your spinal cord must be allowed to flow freely without any interruption. Chiropractors use adjustment to remove these interruptions or misalignments and allow the body to perform as it was meant to.
If you've ever been in a car accident, played a sport, fell down or just bumped into something too hard, it's very possible you are not functioning at your best due to misalignment, there are also chemical reasons. For instance, if you smoke or drink excessively or even have a poor diet, the chemical issues in your body can eventually cause underlying conditions and disease to appear.
Allowing a chiropractor to get you back on track both chemically and structurally will bring your body back to the proper state it should in to perform at its peak.
