In a word, YES!

But does this mean chiropractic will make you feel better with your particular health problem? Your body is self-healing. This means your body can correct most of its own health problems. But this can only happen if your body is functioning normally. Your nervous system is the master controller of all function in your body. It is the job of your nerve system to see that everything is functioning properly and keeping you healthy. So, will chiropractic help me? In a word, YES! But it is your body that ultimately heals you and helps you feel better. Chiropractors do not claim to heal you or cure you. Healing come from inside you. 

It is your nerve system that controls the function of your body and ultimately your health. Any interference to your nerve system will effect the function of your body and therefore effect your body's ability to keep you healthy. 

In essence, only you can cure you. What the chiropractor does is to locate and remove interference to your nervous system and thus allow your body's healing abilities to take over.



This interference to your nervous system occurs when bones in your spine (vertebrae) move out of alignment and pressure or irritate the nerves that come out from between the spinal vertebrae. This then causes the nerve system to malfunction. When your nerves malfunction, parts of your body will function at less than 100% of their abilities. 

When these vertebrae move out of place and cause interference to your nervous system, it is known as a Subluxation. Chiropractors seek to correct subluxations by a series of specific chiropractic adjustments to your spine. By correcting these subluxations you are allowing your nervous system to work normally and therefore allowing your body to heal itself.
