Chiropractic is a holistic approach to healing the body by promoting a healthy nervous system. The nervous system is the primary system within the body that controls its function and healing. When the bones in the spine are twisted or thrown out of alignment, nerve stress is caused. This disrupts how the brain and body communicate, hindering the body’s ability to heal itself. Chiropractic heals these issues through spinal realignment, thus proving it many cases to be an effective anti-aging method.
