Importance of the nervous system
The nervous system controls and coordinates ALL the functions of the body. Everyone has the inborn ability to heal themselves as long as there is no interference with their nervous system, and therefore in their body’s function.

Spinal subluxations (misalignments)
Chiropractic doctors recognize that vertebral subluxations cause interference of the nervous system impeding the perfect expression of health. Subluxations may or may not cause pain or other symptoms. Chiropractors are the only health care providers who specialize in locating, correcting, and preventing subluxations.

Chiropractic adjustments
Chiropractic doctors recognize that when spinal nerve interferences are cleared by means of specific chiropractic adjustments of vertebral subluxations, the nervous system’s normal flow of impulses can resume. The fully functioning nervous system can once again direct the body’s own healing mechanisms and help in the process of attaining optimum health.
