As Chiropractors we love the nervous system! It is what we work with every single day. By adjusting the spine we remove interference from your nervous system which allows the brain and body to communicate to each other more effectively.
However, there are many other ways in which we can support the Nervous System and one of those ways is via the food we eat. Our food makes up the building blocks to every single cell within our body and therefore we should be building it up with good quality nutritious foods.

Chiropractic is based on the important relationship between the spine and the nervous system.

As Chiropractors we aim to evaluate the spine and adjust the areas of spinal dysfunction.
