How does Chiropractic work?
Chiropractic physicians use firm but gentle manual pressure to restore proper structure and function to the spine. And it’s not just about the spine. Chiropractors adjust every joint – wrists for carpal tunnel syndrome, elbows, shoulders, ankles and knees, just to name a few. Chiropractic care is commonly used by athletes, dancers, gardeners and others engaged in physical activity.
What’s so special about the spine?
The spine houses the spinal cord, a bundle of nervous tissue and support cells that carry messages from your brain to the rest of your body — to every cell, tissue and organ.
The spine itself is made up of 24 vertebrae that protect these delicate fibers. Connected ligaments and muscles help support the upright posture of the body. Although the lower portion of the spine holds most of the body’s weight, each segment relies upon the strength of the others to function properly. Accidents, sports injuries, heavy lifting and poor posture are among the many causes of impaired spinal function, which may result in neck and back pain, joint pain, headaches and a host of other conditions. A well-functioning spine is key to health.
