Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing organism controlled and regulated by your nervous system. Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down the spinal cord, and out every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain confirm whether your body is working as it should.
Improved motion or position of the moving bones of the spine may interfere with this vital exchange by irritating new nerves and the tissues they control. Precise chiropractic adjustments are intended to improve mind/body communications. Health often returns with improved nervous system control of the body.
