Chiropractic works because you are self-healing and regulated by your nervous system. Impulses flow from your brain and down your spinal cord. Pairs of nerve roots branch off from between each spinal joint. These nerves link your brain with every cell and tissue of your body. Because of their close proximity to the moving bones of the spine, improper motion or position of spinal bones can irritate and compromise nerve function. Chiropractic care locates these areas and helps reduce their effort with spinal adjustments. Health often returns with restored nervous system control of your body. At Atlas Chiropractic, various spinal adjustment techniques are used to remove nerve irritation. For those who are too fragile, such as those with osteoporosis, or do not like the twisting and popping of normal adjustments, we also use the Pro-Adjuster, a computerized spinal analysis and correction system that allows chiropractors to adjust the spine without the use of force.
