Pressure On Nerves Causes Disease!
Chiropractic is the science of
locating and adjusting pressure
Every organ in the body is con
trolled by mental impulses
(nerve force) from the brain",
these impulses are transmitted
over the spinal cord and nerves
to the organs.
A subluxation .(slight displace
ment) of one or more Vertabrae'(bones) of the spinal colum
(back-bone) will cause pressure on the nerve as it passes out
from the spinal cord between, the vertabrae.
Pressure interferes with the transmission of the mental
impulses (nerve force) Disease is the expression of Mental
Impulses (nerve force) so interferred with. "Normal mental
impulses express HEALTH."
The spine and nervous system are' tho Chiropractors
Special study. The people of this vocation are SPINE
SPECIALISTS. Chiropractic is not a cure-all and has not
abolished death. We do claim, however, that there is no
health system that is so eflective for good. If you have
tried everything else without results, try ChiropracticSpinal
