When your spine’s vertebrae shift out of their normal position, they lose their ability to send and receive nerve signals from the brain. This is a serious issue called a vertebral subluxation and it can lead to pain, muscle spasms, joint problems and other health issues. Doctors of Chiropractic are trained to locate and remove these misalignments from your spinal cord. This restores proper nerve function and helps the body heal itself naturally.
Nerves in the spine control how your digestive system works and if they aren’t functioning properly due to spinal misalignments you may suffer from stomach issues like acid reflux, constipation or diarrhea. By removing spinal restrictions chiropractors help your nerves communicate clearly to your digestive and endocrine systems so you feel better.
If you are having trouble sleeping your quality of life can take a serious hit. Lack of sleep causes people to have a harder time focusing, makes it more difficult to manage stress and can lead to a number of other health issues. Regular Chiropractic treatments can eliminate the pinched nerves that cause you to wake up during the night. It also helps to relieve the muscle tension in the back and neck that can contribute to poor sleep patterns.
