What is Chiropractic Care and Who Needs One
Chiropractic is the fastest growing natural health care profession in the world. It was discovered in 1895 in Davenport, Iowa. Doctors of chiropractic specialize in locating and correcting a serious condition known as Vertebral Subluxation. A Vertebral Subluxation is a misalignment of one or more of the twenty-four moveable bones of the spine. They are commonly caused by stresses and impacts to the body from poor posture, poor sleeping habits, slips and falls, vehicular accidents, sports impacts, strenuous exercise and work injuries. Subluxations can cause dangerous stress to the spinal cord and the delicate spinal nerves, which exit the spine between the spinal bones. This can cause irritation to the nerves and interferes with their ability to function properly. This nerve interference can impair the function of the system of the body supplied by those nerves. It may be obvious that you need to see a Chiropractor if you are experiencing neck pain, back pain, hip pain, headaches, numbness or curvature of the spine. However, many people don’t realize that chiropractic care has an excellent record of success helping many health conditions. Maintaining a healthy and well-aligned spine is extremely important and is the most often overlooked key to staying healthy.
Chiropractic treatments called spinal adjustments are comfortable, safe, and highly effective. People of all ages can receive chiropractic care to stay healthy. Chiropractors are highly educated, caring professionals sensitive to the natural health care needs of your family.
