The Science of Chiropractic

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that the nervous system (your brain and spinal cord) controls the function of every system of your body - all the cells, tissues, and organs.  In fact, your body is much like the Internet: the brain is the computer, the spinal cord is the information highway, the spinal vertebrae which house nerves, arteries and veins are the links to your organs. The disruption of the function of these tissues or organs and the nerve control is called VSC or Vertebral Subluxation Complex. Chiropractic is the science of finding these areas of spinal malfunction, the art of correcting them and the philosophy of all things natural as we have been created.
