What is a Chiropractor

Chiropractic Exam.jpg

A: Chiropractors are essentially doctors of the entire body. We study the body intensely and are experts on how it works, how it functions, and especially ways that things can go wrong and how to fix these problems. Your body is truly a marvelous thing. It glides along more efficiently than the most complex machine. It’s so efficient, in fact, that it has an emergency alert mechanism built right in to let you know that something went haywire. That’s what pain is for.

Pain is the alarm that goes off when some- thing is not right. So what does that have to do with chiropractic? Well, at HealthSource® we gently restore more normal motion and sometimes ease your spine’s vertebrae back into place so that your central nervous system can do its job, which allows your body to heal itself. One of the ways we do this is by giving you a chiropractic adjustment.

Adjustments begin to restore normal motion and may even move your spine into place about the width of a hair every time one is performed. At the skilled hands of your HealthSource® chiropractor, your vertebrae may begin to shift back into place, allowing your spine to do its job of protecting your central nervous system without interference.
