According to The Association of Chiropractic Colleges, “chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The practice of chiropractic focuses on the relationship between structure (primarily the spine) and function (as coordinated by the nervous system) and how that relationship affects the preservation and restoration of health.”
Fundamental to the chiropractic approach is the belief that good health depends upon having your spine and nervous system working at their best. Chiropractors approach healthcare differently than traditional medicine. Rather than using medications and surgery, chiropractors correct misalignments of the spine, called subluxations, which helps the nervous system function properly. Chiropractors believe that “the power that made the body, heals the body”.
Although people start chiropractic care for many different reasons, our primary goal at Infinity Wellness and Chiropractic is not simply to alleviate the pain that is often experienced in and around the back. Instead, we strive to ensure that your nervous system, which can be compared to a ‘communication superhighway’, is able to relay information back and forth between your body and brain. This is vitally important because your nervous system, which is housed within the spine, controls and regulates all of your body.
