sicThere's a saying among chiropractors that the power that made the body can heal the body.  The human body is an amazingly intelligent creation and has its own built-in healing mechanisms that go to work to heal, repair and restore when given the proper support.  Chiropractic can support the body's natural ability to heal by removing obstructions to this process.  Since the immune system relies on proper communication throughout the entire body in order to detect and send help when it senses trouble, decreasing interference in this system helps the immune system to function at a higher level.  Having vertebral subluxations (misalignments) can put pressue on nerves that are vital for this communication.  Therefore, receiving chiropractic treatments which reduce nerve intereference helps the immune system function at optimal levels.  While most patients see a chiropractor for pain, more and more are realizing the overall health benefits of routine preventative chiropractic care in order to optimize healthy immune function.  Get adjusted, get healthy!
