Chiropractic care is focused on removing imbalances either structurally or posturally in order to allow the body to function properly and heal. For this to bee effective is imperative that the nerves from the brain and spinal cord travel to all the parts of the body without interference or interruption. Chiropractors have been trained to locate and correct spinal interference thus allowing the body to heal and perform normally.
Traumas from everyday living can cause misalignment of the bones of the spine causing interference and dysfuction. From major traumas like a car accident or sports injuries to simple slip and catches or just bumping something “wrong”, it is possible to cause misalignments in the spine. This misalignment, whether major or minor can have various ill effects on your health and well-being, and for some, pain and illness may take years to appear. This is why it’s important to be evaluated for misalignments and have corrective measures taken before symptoms become life-changing.
Not all misalignments are from mechanical trauma. Environmental or other chemical “invaders” can have a negative effect on a persons spinal alignment. From alcohol and tobacco use to polution in our air and water can have a negative effect on our spines causing underlying health dysfunction.
By going to a trained chiropractor, you have the best chance of finding out if there are issues affecting your spine and nervous system and with proper care, you can be on your way to a healthier and happier tomorrow.
