Chiropractic treatment is the subtle movement of one or more of the bones of the spine, (vertebrae) to attempt to restore proper motion and function of the joints. When the bones of the spine are out of alignment it can cause acute symptoms including headaches, neck pain, low back pain, decreased range of motion and decreased strength. If left untreated, the misaligned or “subluxated” vertebrae can develop osteoarthritis and other chronic health concerns. These misalignments can occur from auto accidents or work injuries, as well as subtle stresses from our everyday life, (poor posture, bending, lifting, or stress in general). Chiropractic adjustments can be effective in the overall health of your spine, which protects your nervous system; the most important system in your body.
