Much like Leonardo Da Vinci and his iconic drawing of the Vitruvian Man, Chiropractic focuses on Geometry or as we use it..... Bio-mechanics. Chiropractic Adjustments are the delicate movements of the bones in the spine. When these bones move out of place they are called Subluxations, and the goal is to realign these displaced bones. These misalignments can have many causes from car accidents, falls or even biology.
When the vertebrae (bones of the spine) are out of place it can have a much larger effect than just aches and pains. These misalignments can put pressure on the nerves exiting the spine causing symptoms all the way down the nerve path. When these nerves are compressed our body can't function at its optimal level.
Manually adjusting the vertebrae by strategically putting pressure one the spine, pushes the bones back into alignment. This movement is done very quickly with little to no pain. You may even hear a cracking or popping sound, but don't worry we aren't breaking your back! The cracking sound is merely the release of gases in the joints depressurizing as we move them. In many instances you may leave in a state of euphoria as pressure has been alleviate from your joints and nerves!
