Why You Need To Visit A Chiropractor

When was the last time you had your spine checked?

For many people, that answer is “never.” While it is commonplace to get your teeth checked by a dentist from childhood on, the majority of the people have yet to experience the benefits of a chiropractic check-up for their spine.

It’s unfortunate, since your spine protects the most important part of your body: Your Central Nervous System (CNS). The CNS consists of your brain, spinal cord and 31 pairs of nerves that act as information cables which send signals to every system in the body. These nerves send signals to muscles, organs, tissues and tell your body how to function and most importantly, how to repair itself.

However, trauma, stress, and repetitive strains can cause the spine to move out of its normal alignment.These misalignments of the spine, also called subluxations, compress and irritate the delicate nerves and can cause these signals to be reduced and disrupted resulting in common secondary symptoms.

Some common symptoms and warning signs associated with subluxation:

  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Scoliosis
  • Sleep Disturbances
  • Sciatica
  • Asthma/Allergies
  • Digestive Problems
  • And More…
Take this short survey to receive a customized health assessment so you can discover how to feel and be awesome again.

Your chiropractor will perform complete case history and physical examination, which can include specialized diagnostic tests such as posture, X-ray and computerized assessment of the nerves.

Chiropractors are specially trained, with over 7 years of doctorate level schooling, to detect and gently correct spinal misalignments, without the side effects that come with drugs or surgery.

Chiropractic has been proven safe and effective for people of all ages. Patients under regular chiropractic care experience:

  • Incredible health and overall wellness
  • Take fewer medications
  • Save 69% on the health care costs yearly
  • Have less sick days
  • 60.2% Fewer hospital admissions
