The word chiropractic is derived from greek language, meaning “done by hand”. At Innovative Health & Wellness, we believe that the body has the potential to heal itself, and will do so when the body is in complete alignment. This alignment is made possible by adjusting, by hand, those subluxations in the spine that cause disruptions throughout the body’s different systems. Basically, chiropractic adjustments align the spine to remove blockages throughout the nervous system.
The nervous system, as a whole, controls each and every one of the body’s functions; from the endocrine system to the circulatory system; from the digestive to the immune, is controlled and guided by this complicated transportation system. Brain signals relay down the spinal cord, through a complicated network of nerves, to the individual body systems, which react and operate their specific functions. It is only when disruptions to that system’s signals exist, are disease and illness generated. When the nervous system is sending the signals it needs to the various functions throughout our bodies, the body simply works better in staying or getting healthy.
The spine, though complicated in form, is simple in purpose: protect the spinal cord. When we experience trauma to the spine, through daily living, bad habits or environmental influences, our spine is often negatively affected. With any misalignment of the spine, the nerves in the area can be prevented from doing their job and are unable to send clear signals to the body’s organs and systems that depend on them to work properly. This often results in illness, pain, stomach distress, headaches and loss of energy.
Chiropractors use the art and science of chiropractic medicine to detect and treat spinal misalignments, freeing the nerves from signal disruptions. Gently-delivered adjustments to the spine have been proven to provide relief from the following symptoms:
- Back and or neck Pain
- Shoulder Problems
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Foot and ankle issues
