Chiropractic medicine addresses the underlying cause of pain. Often symptoms such as chronic lower back pain can be traced to a compromised nervous and immune system. The nervous system controls all body functions. Physical, chemical, and emotional stressors undermine optimal nerve and immune function. Chiropractic adjustments restore integrity to the body.
Misalignments in the spine can place stress on the nervous system, compromising nerve and immune function. The body responds physically to mental stressors. Under duress, the body releases the hormones cortisol and adrenaline, which increases blood pressure, heart rate, metabolism, respiration, and blood flow to muscles. When one is consistently stressed—physically or psychologically—these processes can develop into chronic stress, which weakens the immune system and impedes daily digestive processes.
Chiropractic care can be a long-term holistic solution that reduces or eliminates the need for traditional medications through natural treatments and lifestyle changes.
