Chiropractic focuses mainly on the spine, nervous system, and other joints. Chiropractors use adjustments by applying a very specific force to a problematic joint to improve proper function and mobility of the spine and nervous system. By removing the subluxation, which is a misalignment that causes a blockage on the nerve, the body will then start to heal and restore itself. Accidents, falls, stress, bad posture, and everyday habits can affect your spine or other joints. Left unresolved, this can lead to chronic problems.
Chiropractic care is not just for adults. Infants and children can benefit greatly from adjustments. Children are active and may fall or have unnoticed injuries. Regular check-ups for misalignments and proper nerve function is an important component in a healthier life-style for children of all ages.
