While chiropractic care can help with any number of symptoms and problems, we believe that every spine should be checked.
Do you go to the dentist only when you feel a toothache? Or, do you get checked regularly to catch cavities and other problems when they are small, and to be proactive with preventative care?
While you spine houses all communication from your brain to every functioning organ in your body (the nervous system). Your spine can be out of alignment (chiropractors call it subluxated) from everyday life, a sports injury, a childhood fall, an accident, excessive sitting etc. and sustaining pressure is put on the nerve, less than 100% communication is happening-causing damage to the organ that nerve is "supplying".
Some common conditions that you may recognize in yourself and others can be caused by this "supply" getting cut off are:
Headaches, Allergies, Neck Pain, Reoccurring Sinus Infections, Arm pain/Carpal tunnel, Stomach Disorders, Shoulder Pain, Mid Back pain, Sciatica, Low Back Pain, Leg Pain, Indigestion, Menstrual Cramps/Irregular, Sciatica and more...
Millions of people who suffer from a wide variety of conditions have benefited from chiropractic care even though chiropractic is not a "specific ailment" treatment.
Why? Because chiropractic is a method of healthcare that permits your body to function at its best. That is especially important if you suffer from the above symptoms.. Your immune system keeps you 100% natural, organic, unadulterated! It recognizes and destroys anything not supposed to be in you: bacteria, and viruses, pollutants, dust, pollen, drugs, tumors, dead pieces of your own skin cells, and even artificial hearts and donor organs (Metal and plastic, however, don't trigger an immune reaction.) A healthy immune system means high resistance to disease and infection, better ability to deal with stress and greater health and well-being. A nervous system without stress functions more efficiently.
Chiropractors correct a basic cause of body malfunction to improve the function of your immune system. Please note that the chiropractic approach is to remove vertebral subluxations, a common spinal distortion that puts stress on your nervous system. Freed of nervous system stress, your body will work more effectively.
