The spinal column is a complex structure of joints, muscles, and ligaments that supports your body weight and is interconnected with your nervous system. Millions of nerves travel throughout the human frame to control the function and physiology of your body. The nervous system controls your whole body! When irritated, these nerves alert your brain that something is wrong. The symptoms that result usually include pain that can impact your whole body. Nerve signals are sent to your muscles to stabilize and protect the area, which may make you feel stiff, sore, and tired as a result. These symptoms are the body’s “check engine light.”
As opposed to taking prescription drugs that simply mask the pain, chiropractic care seeks to locate the biomechanical or structural source of your symptoms and address the underlying cause, so the problem doesn’t keep occurring. By focusing our treatments on the spine, we help create an environment in the body that supports its natural, powerful healing mechanisms.
Injuries to the spinal column usually impact other parts of the body. Spinal misalignments can lead to pain radiating down the legs (sciatica) or into the neck and shoulders. They can cause pain and difficulty performing daily activities. Chiropractic care has been shown to decrease chronic pain. This relief helps not only the back but also the neck, legs, and other parts of the body.
Here are some of the conditions that have been shown to benefit from chiropractic care.
