We believe in the power of chiropractic care to allow the nervous system to help the body be self-regulating, and self-healing. The spinal column is designed to protect the vital connection between the nervous system and the body. Therefore, an optimal functioning spine and nervous system equals optimal health. Today the research says it all.

THE WINSOR AUTOPSIES

Can an Unhealthy Spine Affect Internal Organs?

At the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Henry Winsor conducted an experiment based on chiropractors claim that by adjusting the vertebrae they can relieve stomach troubles, ulcers, menstrual cramps, thyroid conditions, kidney disease, constipation, heart disease, lung and other diseases. In this experiment he dissected both human and animal cadavers to see if there was any relationship between any diseased internal organs discovered on autopsy and the vertebrae and nerves that went to the organs. Dr. Winsor dissected 75 human and 72 cat cadavers. He found nearly 100% correlation between minor curvatures of the vertebrae and diseases of the internal organs.
