How Exactly Does Chiropractic Work

In an attempt to keep this super simple please allow me to tell you a story.  You are outside watering the lawn with a typical water hose.  While the water is flowing out, someone places something heavy on the hose back where it comes out of the spicket.  The result is decreased water flow.  Make sense?

That is the essence of chiropractic.

We take the pressure off your nerves so that they flow properly.

It is pretty well known that the brain controls the body.  In order for that to happen, the brain must communicate through the nerves.  These nerves originate in the spine then branch out all over the body.  If there is a misalignment in the spine, pressure gets put on the nerve and much like the water hose, the flow decreases.  With this decreased nerve flow, whatever is connected to this nerve; glands, organs, or muscles, will not work at its peak.  

Chiropractors are trained to detect these misalignments and put them back in place to relieve the nerve pressure.
