We are most often asked if chiropractic care is about neck and back pain. The answer is no. Chiropractic is not about pain at all! Chiropractic care is based on the principle that all bodily functions are controlled and monitored by the nervous system (The brain, spinal cord and nerves). The body heals itself through the communication of the nervous system to every cell, tissue and organ in the body. These nerves come from your brain, down the spinal cord and branch out between the protective bones of the spinal column and regulate all bodily functions. In order for the body’s functions to work in harmony the nervous system must be free from interference. Misalignments in the bones of the spinal column can cause interference in the communication of information from the nervous system to the rest of the body. These misalignments are known as “subluxations” and can affect proper nerve function and lead to decreased health. A Chiropractor is specifically trained to locate and correct misalignments in the spine with a chiropractic adjustment. Dr. Jennifer has her Bachelor of Science from the University of Guelph and her Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College for a total of 8 years of post secondary education. Chiropractic is a natural, non-invasive and drug free approach to health which aims to restore normal function and integrity to the nervous system in order to improve your overall health and quality of life.
