What is Chiropractic?

5.26.2018 - Author: Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Spartanburg

What a question? Can I simply answer it? Of course!

Chiropractic literally means to practice with hands. Chiropractors use their hands (and sometimes adjusting tools) to assist the body to 
heal naturally. 

Heal from what? We all experience stress. I'm sure you can think of one person who is constantly stressed and typically... not well.  As we experience physical stress (slips and falls), mental and emotional stress (work, finances), and chemical stress (toxins, pollutants)… and our bodies reach a point they cannot readily adapt to the stress, that stress affects our nervous system. Our rest and digest system (parasympathetic) or fight or flight system (sympathetic) is literally our nervous system.


Sometimes you can see it in poor posture, other times decreased immune system, an inability to get rest or even a lack of focus. The nervous system is encased in bone, a spine. It's a Chiropractor's job to check the spine, ensure it's moving and functioning the best it can so that the nervous system it houses can adapt to stress... which stops the degenerative process. 

That's what I do at
