What Do Chiropractors Do?

Chiropractors work with the bones and nerves of the spinal column and spinal cord respectively. Chiropractors spend years of highly specialized training in order to locate where misplaced spinal vertebrae are impinging the nerves which travel down the spinal cord and out through the spinal column to the muscles, organs and glands of the body. After locating the vertebrae impinging the nerves (subluxations), the chiropractor, using various highly specialized techniques, is able to replace the misplace vertebrae and thus release pressure on the nerves.This called a spinal adjustment.

The Lucky Ones…

People who have a neck ache or back ache are the lucky ones! They may know that it’s quite possible that they have subluxations and they will hopefully do the smart thing: go to a chiropractor. Others may suffer from digestive problems, headaches, colds, menstrual cramps, depression, seizures, skin conditions and many other problems and not be aware that a re-aligned spinal column could greatly improve their health.
