Gentle, effective care of the spinal column with the use of the hands or instruments to provide correct movement, improve function, and decrease muscle irritation. The goal of chiropractic adjustment is to relieve pain and improve the body's physical function.

The modern chiropractor works both directly and indirectly with the nervous system. Every function of the body is under the control of this system. Every organ, tissue and cell is controlled by nerve impulses traveling from the brain to all parts of the body.

In the field of chiropractic, the avenue of approach is the spine. The spine houses and protects the spinal cord, the "switchboard" of the nervous system through which nerve fibers pass from the brain to different parts of the body. For every effect there must have been a cause. If a person is ill, then the condition of pain, regardless of the name applied to it, is an effect for which there must have been a cause. The nerves leave the spinal cord through openings between movable spinal bones called vertebrae. When vertebrae, through injury or postural problems become misaligned, they interfere with the normal function of these nerves.

This misalignment causes pain and malfunction of the nervous system and is called a “subluxation”. The subluxation then becomes the cause of the pain. The objective of chiropractic care is to determine, from a thorough examination and X-ray films, the exact degree of misalignment producing this subluxation. Proper “adjustments” are given to remove these subluxations and thus remove the cause of pain and malfunction.
