An adjustment gently corrects a misaligned spinal vertebrae (a subluxation) to remove any disruption in your spine’s nerve function.
Stress of various kinds cause subluxations. A physical mishap, a childhood fall, an auto accident affect the spine, as does poor posture, sleep positions, incorrect lifting, lack of exercise, etc. Also, chemical and emotional stress can cause subluxations.
Under normal circumstances, the adjustment is painless. Occasionally, a brief sensation may be felt due to the decompression of the nerve root
While the adjustment does not by itself heal the body, it removes the interference of the subluxation, and allows the body to function at its true potential.
Chiropractic care can help your body maintain its peak level of health and fitness. Regular spinal checkups help detect and prevent spinal stress due to subluxations.
Your spine is under constant stress. Every person who has a spine needs to be checked for subluxations.
Since the birth process itself can have a significant effect on the infant spine, many parents have their newborns checked for subluxations (spinal misalignments). Later, as children begin to sit up, crawl, walk and run, the spine is introduced to new stresses. Ordinary childhood falls and mishaps often cause subluxations (spinal misalignments). Left unchecked, these misalignments will remain and cause problems in adulthood, if not before.
