Chiropractic is a natural, drug-free health care profession founded in 1895. It is based on the principle that your body has an innate intelligence that will always move towards a state of health if allowed to express itself freely. Your body’s intelligent design is largely expressed through your nervous system, your master communication system. The motion and alignment of your spine is intimately related to the health of your nervous system.
Chiropractors are experts in locating and correcting areas of spinal misalignment or movement dysfunction, commonly called Subluxations. When the vertebrae in your spine are out of place, it puts pressure on nerves and causes interference with how your brain sends messages to your body to function properly.
When you get a Chiropractic adjustment the body releases endorphins, natural chemicals that work like morphine to reduce pain. This reduces your discomfort while giving you a much-needed boost of energy so you can go about your day and exercise.
The majority of professional athletes have a chiropractor on their medical team. They do this to help enhance performance, treat injuries and minimize the risk of future injuries. Logan University graduates Emma Minx, DC (’14), CCSP and Mike Murphy, DC (’95) have been team chiropractors for NFL and NHL teams as well as MLB teams. Their years of experience with elite athletes have shown that the benefits of Chiropractic can increase range of motion, boost flexibility and improve balance and strength allowing the body to heal properly.
