What is chiropractic care?
Chiropractors work with the spine to help correct spinal misalignments or subluxations that are typically caused by several different factors. Physical stress is one of the leading causes of subluxations throughout the body. Physical stresses not only include things like car accidents and falling on the ice, but most often include our activities of daily living. How many hours a day do you spend sitting at a computer or working on your hands and knees doing physical labor? How many of us actually have proper posture when we sit, stand, and walk? Pregnant women have a constant physical stress that their body has to adapt to. The birthing process can be traumatic for both mom and baby.
Emotional stress that we can carry through our shoulders and neck or stress that affects our digestion and bowel can also cause subluxations throughout the spine. Chemical imbalances in the body, whether it is caused by a poor diet, dehydration, or misuse of prescription medications, can all cause spinal misalignments.
Chiropractors work with the spine, not just because it's often the source of neck and back pain, but because it houses and protects the central nervous system -- that system which monitors, controls and regulates all body function, and allows the body to adapt to internal and external stresses.
