Chiropractic is based on four ideas:

1)  The body is a self-healing mechanism. 

For example, if you cut your finger - what happens?  It heals.  If you cut the finger of a corpse - what happens?  It doesn't heal.  What is the difference between the two?  Life. 

2)  The nervous system is the master system of the body - every aspect of the human experience is processed through the nervous system.

3) When there is interference with the function of the nervous system, it compromises your physical well-being.  It distorts your perception of the world and compromises your ability to response to the world, which results in emotional consequences too. 

When this happens to a significant number of people in a society, you have a sick society.

4) What I do as a chiropractor is analyze, locate, and correct the cause of that interference.

I like to say that the chiropractic adjustment restores the light to your life.  This is why I have this on my clinic door as you walk out into the world following your adjustment:
