How does Chiropractic work?
In essence, chiropractic care addresses restrictions of motion in the musculoskeletal system. That means helping the body move and function how it’s designed to, helping to alleviate pain. The bones and muscles have a very close relationship with the nerves. For this reason, gentle chiropractic treatment is especially good for improving conditions that relate to the nervous system.
