The joints of your spine are designed to move freely. So you can move freely. But sometimes, because of trauma or stress, these joints can become misaligned or restricted. We call this a subluxation.
This misalignment of the spine could be the result of a major trauma, like a car accident or sports injury. Or it could be because of the smaller, repetitive traumas of everyday life: hunched over a laptop, keeping up with the kids, over-enthusiastic exercising. However it’s come about, this misalignment – this subluxation of joints – can cause real pain and discomfort. It can impinge on the nerves, affecting how they work. This can cause a number of health issues and painful symptoms.
As Chiropractors, we can realign the bones of the spine, removing the nerve impingements and allowing the nervous system to start working as it should. Then your body’s natural ability to heal itself kicks back in again and you start feeling and functioning a lot better. Minus the pain, distraction or discomfort.
