According to Palmer Chiropractic College and BJ Palmer (the founding father of Chiropractic), Chiropractic is a natural, drug free form of health care that uses adjustments of the spinal vertebrae to relieve dysfunction of the nervous system and allow the body to heal naturally.
These misalignments are called subluxations, simply meaning a bone is out of its natural alignment causing lack of transmission to the organs, tissue and muscles. Misalignments can also reduce the ability of your body to adapt to its ever changing environment. Even the slightest malfunction of the spine can alter the regular transmission of nerve impulses, preventing the body from responding optimally.
Chiropractors use their hands to deliver a non invasive high velocity low impact application to a specific vertebrae thus correcting the misalignment, permitting the normal nerve transmission and assisting your body to heal on its own.
Your body has the innate intelligence to heal naturally given that the body is free of interference.
