Your nervous system - the body's information highway - is protected by the spine. The nervous system travels out between the vertebrae or joints of the spine to carry messages from the brain to every corner of your body. Stress and strain on the vertebrae can put pressure on the nerves in the affected area.
That is why a problem with your spine can have far-reaching effects causing symptoms such as arm or leg pain.
Adjustment of the joints of the body has been used in the healing arts for many centuries and is at the heart of modern chiropractic care. Adjustments help relieve pain, and restore normal functioning to the spine, joints and supporting structures of the body. The Doctor will apply a gentle, controlled and directed pressure that helps to restore the spine’s ability to function and relieve nerve interference.
