If you haven’t been to a chiropractor you’re missing out on taking care of one of the most important organs in the body- the spine. While most people who see a chiropractor have a spinal condition or sports injury, many people seek out a chiropractor to improve their overall health and wellness.
The most common spinal conditions that show the greatest amount of improvement with chiropractic care include:
- Disc bulges and herniations
- Spinal Stenosis
- Arthritis of the spine
- Disc arthritis
- Pinched nerves
- Headaches and migraines
- Back/neck pain for no apparent reason (mechanical).
Chiropractic is farther reaching than just pain relief and function. Spinal alignment correction with the chiropractic adjustment has a direct and profound influence on how the nervous system works thereby improving how the brain communicates with the rest of the body. By removing the “kink in the hose” (spinal pressure on the nerves) the water will flow. This is the simplified explanation as to why chiropractic assists in the healing process of many illnesses. It can be easy as drinking water, eating the right foods, or exercising. All you have to do is pick up the phone and call our office to start feeling better and experiencing better health and wellness.
