The body is a self-regulating, self-maintaining organism that is controlled and regulated by the nerve system. If there is an interruption in the nerve system, the body’s ability to function fully is diminished. Every experience you have is through your nerve system. If that interruption occurs the essence of life is diminished. Doctors of Chiropractic are the only health professionals that detect this interruption, called a Vertebral Subluxation Complex. It is our purpose to inspire, promote and celebrate healthy lifestyles by detecting the subluxation and guiding our practice members to a new experience of life.
