Many people think of chiropractors as back doctors because most treatment involves addressing the back or vertebra. In reality chiropractors are actually nervous system doctors. This is because the brain controls and coordinates the function of our cells, muscles and organs. The brain does this by sending signals down the spinal cord and past the backbone to our cells and organs. When the back bone (or, vertebra) move out of alignment, they can irritate our nerves.
When a pain nerve gets irritated, the body will experience pain. When a nerve traveling to a muscle becomes irritated, the muscle will become weaker. And when a nerve traveling to an organ is irritated, actual organ disfunction can result.
Dr. Pascal's chiropractic treatment involves finding the origin of the pain, removing the pressure off the nerve, and restoring normal, pain-free function to the body.
