Chiropractic care is a natural, drug-free approach to healthcare. Your spinal column, made up of 24 independent vertebrae, is what allows your body to move, twist, and bend through every motion of your busy day. It also encases and helps protect the delicate central nervous system that controls and coordinates every muscle, tissue and organ of the body. This is why the first step to an active lifestyle is a properly functioning spine.
When two or more vertebrae aren't functioning together properly, it is what many chiropractors refer to as a subluxation or a misalignment. These subluxations are joint dysfunctions that can cause you to experience pain, discomfort, decreased mobility, or many other symptoms and health conditions. Joint dysfunctions often go unnoticed and can cause miscommunication between your brain and body.
Joint dysfunctions in the spine may eventually lead to symptoms in other joints or parts of the body. These symptoms are your body’s only way of letting you know something is wrong. Unfortunately, the absence of pain is not an indication of health. By the time pain and symptoms appear the problem may have been present for months, even years. The great news is that you can help prevent these types of symptoms and conditions with routine chiropractic care.
