     A program of spinal research at the University of Colorado promises to provide the scientific basis.  Chiropractic is based on the premise that a vertebra that has been bumped or jarred out of its normal position will interfere with the functions of the nerve or nerves that extend out from between the vertebrae–and this in turn will affect the body organs served by the nerves.

     The Colorado research reveals that a compression of the spinal roots using only 20 to 40 millimeters of pressure (this is roughly the same as very gently pressing a finger on the back of your hand) reduces the ability of the nerve to function normally about 60%!

     The spine is an accident-prone mechanism in the body, and any deviations from the norm can have far-reaching effects on health.  Keeping the spine as it should be so the body can be healthy normally is what chiropractic is all about.
