Chiropractic Care

The Science and Art of Spinal Correction

The modern doctor of Chiropractic works both directly and indirectly with the nerves, because every function of your entire body is under control of the nervous system.

Every organ, tissue and cell is controlled by neurological impulses travelling from the brain to every part of the body. Nerves make it possible for sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing.

Nerves maintain your balance and keep your body temperature at 37.6 degrees. Nerves control your liver, lungs, spleen, pancrease, gallbladder, kidneys and all other organs.
