Even though chiropractic can help with many pain related conditions, pain relief is not actually the main purpose of an adjustment.
As living beings we are self regulating, and should be self healing. The ‘master control system’ of your body is your nervous system. If your nervous system is in any way compromised, then your overall ability to heal will be to. We know that a properly working spine (not just pain free) is essential for the nervous system and brain to function optimally. Therefore the purpose of a chiropractic adjustment is to help you express optimal health.
