Chiropractors believe that there is an innate intelligence we are born with and it is what causes our body to function without conscious thought. The nervous system, composed of the brain, spinal cords and nerves, is the master controller of your body and is the conduit for how innate intelligence relays information. The goal of the chiropractor is to identify and remove interference from your nervous system by performing an adjustment to take pressure off nerves and reposition the misaligned bone or joint (called a subluxation). The adjustment essentially opens the pathway of communication between your brain and the rest of your body by removing that interference caused by a subluxation. Nerve impingement doesn't necessarily always show up as pain.
If the nerve goes to an organ, it may cause it not to function properly. A study found that pressure equal to the weight of a dime leaning up against a nerve can reduce its function by up to 60%.
Many times traditional medicine looks for symptoms and looks to mask or cover them up. Chiropractic looks to find the cause. Your body is designed to be resilient and heal itself but sometimes it needs a little help. With Dr. Snodgrass as part of your team, you will likely see improvement in your overall health which will lead to a better quality of life.
