Chiropractic – Explanation of why Chiropractic works

Chiropractic is based on the scientific fact that the nervous system controls all functions of the body.  The nervous system consists of the brain and the spinal nerves that are housed and protected within the spine.  This nervous system sends information from the brain to every organ, tissue, and cell through the spinal nerves.  If there is a subluxation or misalignment of the spine that is putting pressure on the spinal nerves this can cause dysfunction.  This spinal nerve interference can only be removed by a Chiropractic adjustment.  Chiropractic looks to the spine for the cause of dysfunction in the body (sickness or pain) and we use a gentle technique with light pressure on the spine to motion the vertebra off of the nerve so the body can heal itself.  Dr. Ryan Tarnick, Tarnick Chiropractic & Acupuncture, P.C.
