Chiropractic is a powerful modality that, when done correctly, enhances nervous system function. The nervous system ultimately controls ALL other systems, organs, and glands in the body. With that said, prolonged dysfunction at any specific segmental spinal level may lead to any number of conditions. This spinal joint dysfunction is caused by a subluxation, a misalignment in a vertebral bone that creates pressure on the surrounding nervous system structures thus interfering with the integrity of the nervous system. Doctors of Chiropractic correct such misalignments by applying gentle corrective forces to the affected regions in a procedure known as a spinal adjustment. The cause of many newborn health problems can often be traced to nervous system irritation caused by spinal and cranial misalignment.
