Chiropractic is all about changing maps in the brain. Chiropractors are experts at correcting joint dysfunction, also known as subluxation. Joint dysfunction, or subluxation, happens when the signal from the joint to the brain is dampened or diminished.
This signal is known as proprioception. In other words, your brain holds a map of your body through the nervous system, through which it easily communicates with all the joints and muscles.
Over time or with inactivity that map becomes less defined and communication becomes dampened or even lost. Muscles tighten to protect the spine.
The chiropractic adjustment restores motion to the joint allowing the brain to update its map of the joint and the surrounding muscles. This allows the tightened protective muscles to relax and enjoy better communication with the brain.

Dr. Adams Explains Chiropractic
Chiropractic is about letting the body heal itself. The way to do that is to restore motion to fixated joints so the nerves, muscles and other tissues can function properly.
