What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is another branch of health care that focuses on correcting misalignments (called subluxations) in the spine to improve nervous function. The nervous system is the first system to develop in an embryo and it will control the function of every cell in the body.

How do chiropractors correct subluxations?

Chiropractors generally use their hands in correcting subluxations by appling a precise, direct impulse. Chiropractors use a variety of techniques, which may be tailored to the patient.

Who gets subluxations and how do people get subluxated?

Anyone can get subluxations...from babies in utero to senior citizens. People can get subluxated by repetitive microtrauma, blunt forces, and chemicals just to name a few. Even the birthing process can subluxate a newborn.

Here are some good links that introduce chiropractic and its role in ear infections.
