If you've never been to a Chiropractor, you may be wondering what to expect during your first visit. Chiropractic care is focused on the detection, localization and specific adjustment of vertebral subluxation complex in the spinal column. Subluxation is a term used to describe what occurs when vertebra are improperly aligned causing pressure or interference within your nervous system. Since the nervous system controls and coordinates every system of your body, a misalignment in the spine can cause irreparable damage if it remains undetected or uncorrected.
In many cases, you may not realize your spine is misaligned because you have not experienced any pain yet but left undetected, misalignments can lead to a gradual deterioration of your health and well-being. This is where your Doctor of Chiropractic can help. By correcting the subluxation and removing interferences in your nervous system, your body can function more efficiently on all levels. And while pain often motivates people to seek the help of a Chiropractic Doctor, you do not have to be in pain or discomfort to benefit from Chiropractic adjustments. In fact, clinical research reveals that regular chiropractic care promotes your body's ability to self-heal and has been shown to decrease incidences of certain ailments and injuries, while helping you reach and maintain your optimal health.
