Damage can occur to the spinal column, nerves and organs interfering with your body's ability to heal itself.When your spine is properly aligned your body's ability to send and receive messages to the brain is greatly improved. This provides better ability to heal itself when a problem is detected.

"Why I am a Doctor of Chiropractic"
"Because I honor the inborn potential of everyone to be truly healthy. Because I desire to help the newborn, the aged, and those without hope. Because I choose to care for the patient with the disease, not the disease. Because I wish to assist rather than intrude; to free rather than control. Because I seek to correct the cause, and not its effect. Because I know that doctors do not heal, only the body can heal itself. Because I have been called to serve others. Because I want to make a difference. Because every day I get to witness miracles. Because I know it's right"
