Chiropractic care can treat more than just back pain.

When people think about chiropractic care, they automatically think of back pain. Back pain is the most obvious ailment treated with chiropractic care because chiropractors deal primarily with adjustments to the spine. However, chiropractic adjustments aren’t limited to treating back pain. In fact, they actually play a huge part in keeping your nervous system healthy.

Your nervous system is a vital part of the way that your body operates because it controls how you think, feel, function and perform. Your nervous system consists of your brain and your spinal cord, and it is protected by your skull and your spine. When a vertebra in your spine becomes misaligned or dislocated, it’s called a subluxation. Subluxations can block communications between your nerves and your brain, preventing your nervous system from operating properly. Subluxations can hamper your body’s ability to heal itself as it should and prevent your body from operating at the optimal level.

How does chiropractic care work?

Chiropractic care helps to keep the spine in proper alignment so that the nervous system can flow freely and operate properly. Chiropractic care is completely safe, natural, noninvasive and requires absolutely no pain medication. It is an alternative treatment option that can be used to treat a variety of health issues, including headaches, musculoskeletal injuries, asthma, pain related to pregnancy, stress and more. In addition to treating health issues, regular chiropractic care can also help to strengthen your immune system, keep you healthier and improve your overall quality of life.
