How Chiropractic Care Relates to Thyroid Disorders

Evidence supports that certain cases of thyroid disorders may result from the malfunction of nerves in the brain and spinal cord that control the thyroid’s production of thyroid hormone. Whether too little or too much thyroid hormone is produced, the abnormal level can be due to a malfunction between the brain, pituitary, spinal cord, and thyroid, as a result of spinal subluxations (spinal distortions that irritate nerves). Chiropractors help restore normal nerve function and communication, thereby allowing your body to work normally and naturally.

        I appreciate getarly what Dr. Lay has done for me. I was afraid I was going to have back surgery. I could not move without extreme pain in my back up my neck and down my right leg. Not only did He help me with all the pain i was having, the entire staff gave me comfort in knowing things will be better soon. I thank God for people like Dr. Lay and his staff. Thanks for helping me. Kristy

      Chiropractic is the worlds lasregt, drug-less healing profession. Chiropractors work with the natural healing powers of the body to restore health. We don’t put things in to the body or take things from the body. We remove nerve interference so the body that built itself, can heal itself.
