Basically what we work with in Chiropractic is the relationship between the nervous system and the bony vertebrae of the spine. When one or more vertebrae lose their normal position, they interfere with the nerves they were meant to protect. This interference can cause pressure or irritation on the nerve roots as they pass out of the spinal column. A Chiropractic adjustment is performed to reposition and mobilize the misaligned vertebrae and relieve the irritation on the nerve. Most patients feel some relief even after their first adjustment.
