What Chiropractors Are Concerned With:

Chiropractors are concerned with how your spinal structure may be affecting the information that travels through your nerve system.  So should you.

Why is this so important? 

The Nerve System:

Our nerve system is the conduit for the information which controls and coordinates all of the functions of our body.  We experience life through our nerve system.  The fact that you see letters on this page and understand what you just read is because your nerve system is working on your behalf so that you may thrive in the environment in which you find yourself.

As you just read that paragraph, your heart beat was regulated, your breathing was regulated, your latest meal was digested, your immune system took note of your environment and made changes for you, hormones were produced...and so on.  All of these activities, including the movement of your limbs, were made possible because of the information which moved through your nerve system.

Research* confirms that when chiropractors adjust misaligned spinal bones (vertebral subluxations), the brain changes.  When the brain changes, lives change.  Chiropractors are the only doctors on the planet who are highly trained to detect and correct misaligned vertebrae and determine what effect(s) the misaligned vertebrae may have on the nerve system.

*Neural Plasticity, Volume 2016, Article ID 3704964 “Manipulation of Dysfunctunctional Spinal Joints Affects Sensorimotor Integration in the Prefrontal Cortex: A Brain Source Localization Study. Lelic et al.

Significance of this research: A change in the brain’s prefrontal activity following chiropractic care may explain and/or link some of the varied improvements in neural function previously observed in the literature, such as improved joint position sense error, reaction time, cortical processing, cortical sensorimotor integration, reflex excitability, motor control, and lower limb muscle strength. 

Bottom line:  We are better off with a properly positioned spine and properly working nerve system.


Health is realized when all of the systems of your body are working in harmony.  If one system is even slightly off, the rest of the body pays a price.  The information in your nerve system, when expressed optimally, constantly monitors each tissue, organ and system of your body to make sure everything is working as it was intended. 

Our amazing bodies possess two irrefutable qualities...they are self healing and self regulating. Our bodies are always working on our behalf to make sure that we can thrive in the environments in which we find ourselves. These qualities are made possible due to the information (Innate Intelligence) that runs through our nerve systems (from brain to body and back).


Anything that negatively affects the information traveling through your nerve system disrupts your body's ability to be well.  The nerve system is robust-yet-delicate and is protected by bone (your skull protects your brain and the moving vertebrae in your spinal column protect your spinal cord and the nerves which exit it).  Things happen in life (falls, accidents, poor sitting habits, poor sleeping habits, stress and more) and we can get shifts in the proper positioning of the vertebrae, which in turn affect the proper functioning of the nerve system resulting in signals that something is wrong with the proper functioning of your body like pain, numbness, tingling, indigestion, nervousness, headaches, and the inability to do those things we enjoy doing.

Chiropractic does not treat these signals.  Rather, Chiropractic is a system whereby a highly trained Doctor of Chiropractic evaluates the spine for structural shifts called vertebral subluxations that can negatively affect the way your nerve system functions. Chiropractors correct these shifts via the Chiropractic Adjustment to assist the body to restore normal function.  That is when healing begins and life is expressed more fully.
