What does a chiropractor do?

Chiropractors understand that the body is a self-healing, self-regulating machine that only fails to function properly when there is interference somewhere. A chiropractor optimizes wellness by working to allow the body to function at 100%. Essentially, if the brain (which controls every organ and tissue in the body), spinal cord (communication pathways), and body are not properly aligned or are dysfunctional, the communication loops between the brain and body function at less than 100% (think of a dimmer switch on a light not at 100%). If the communication pathways (function) are returned, the body begins to work as it is designed and where there was diminished function, begins to to function properly once again.

Are chiropractors useful?
