What if you could reduce your risk for illness and injury with a simple, drug-free treatment that also helped you sleep better at night, enjoy more energy and live an active, pain-free life? Sounds too good to be true, right? After all, most of us spend the majority of our adult lives visiting doctors for a whole host of ailments ranging from the common cold to back aches and pains. Is it truly possible to prevent some of these problems from occurring in the first place? While accidents and unexpected illnesses are a fact of life, the good news is that chiropractic care can help reduce many of the risk factors associated with chronic pain, illness and injury by keeping the spine correctly aligned.
How Spinal Misalignments Hurt Your Health
The spinal column is made of 24 independent vertebrae that allow the body to move, twist and bend. The spinal column also protects the spinal cord, which controls communication between the brain and every organ in the body. When the spine is out of alignment, vertebrae can compress the nearby nerves in the spinal column. The result: joint dysfunction, reduced mobility and pain. And these are just the symptoms you can feel. What you can’t “feel” is how this compression is impacting your brain’s ability to send and receive messages throughout the body. A spinal misalignment increases your risk for a host of health problems, including illness, injury, fatigue and general poor health.
Empowered Living Starts with a Healthy Spine
The spine is the body’s foundation. When it is correctly aligned, your body can operate in a state of “ease” rather than “dis-ease”. So how do you know if your spine is out of alignment? Pain symptoms are one way that your body lets you know something is wrong. Unfortunately by the time you experience pain, the problem may have been present for months or even years. Regular adjustments support correct alignment, improved nerve communication, improved joint motion and coordination, better posture, and improved physical function.
