Chiropractic treatment (Advanced Bio-structural Correction) offers holistic healing and can be considered preventative medicine. Holistic means treating the body as a whole and not as individual parts. The spinal cord (which is protected by the vertebrae), is responsible for connecting the brain to the rest of the body. The slightest resistance at any point in this line of communication can result in a variety of health complications. As a result of poor structure which includes misaligned vertebrae, the tissue that surrounds nerves becomes inflamed and hinders the communication from one nerve to the next. By correcting the structure, the swelling is able to go down and allow the proper of function of the nerves.
