Chiropractic care emphasizes the idea that the cause of many disease processes begins with the body's inability to adapt to its environment. Chiropractic looks to address these illnesses not through the use of drugs and chemicals, but rather through the use of carefully controlled and directed pressure in order to restore spinal bones and joints to their normal function, motion and position. This procedure is known as a Chiropractic Adjustment.

Definition of inflammation- Derived from the term inflammare: To set on fire!
The essential process, regardless of the causative agent, is characterized by local heat, swelling, redness and pain.-New Gould Medical Dictionary
Inflammation occurs to stop the joint and surrounding tissue from moving. The problem is that we need to move and every time we move more inflammation is produced. Don't add fuel to the fire! Ice is always the best choice as it provides a cooling affect especially for acute(new) or flared up chronic(old) injuries.
