ABOUT CHIROPRACTIC in Park Ridge
Chiropractic is the ability to restore communication from the brain to the rest of the body. Chiropractic focuses on the Nervous System, which consists of the brain, spinal cord, and spinal nerves. All information travels from above in the brain, down the spinal cord, inside the nerves out to every muscle, cell, tissue, and organ. This is what we at chiropractic in Park Ridge call the A-D-I-O principle. Chiropractic makes sure that this principle is intact and that the brain is properly able to transmit the message to every part of the body.
Throughout daily routines, traumas and other activities, the bones in your spine called vertebrae may misalign. When spinal bones misalign, this is called a Subluxation. Subluxations cause nerve interference and do not allow for messages to properly be transmitted from the brain to the rest of the body. Chiropractic care removes nerve interference and allows for the body to function as it was intended to.
WHAT IS A SUBLUXATION?
Subluxations are when one or more vertebrae, or bones in your spine, shift out of proper alignment. This causes pressure and irritation to the spinal nerves and inflammation builds up in the holes that the spinal nerves travel through, otherwise known as the Intervertebral Foramen (IVF). Subluxations cause a miscommunication from the brain to the rest of the body because the messages cannot properly get to their destination. When left uncorrected over time, we experience aches, pains, and dysfunction within the body. Chiropractic care locates, analyzes, and corrects subluxations within the spine so your Nervous System is functioning at 100% without any interference. As a result, symptoms go away naturally thus allowing you to get back to your lifestyle functioning better!
