Not only does a chiropractic adjustment restore normal biomechanics and reduces pain, but more importantly it removes the nerve pressure that was in those areas of the spine and extremities. By removing nerve interferences, the brain is able to communicate with those parts of the body and the body can then communicate back to the brain better. It is a 2-way street and getting adjusted brings balance back to the nervous system. Since the nervous system controls all the other systems of the body, the body can then function at its optimal performance.
