Because chiropractic treatments are primarily applied to the spinal region, many individuals incorrectly assume that chiropractors treat only back and neck ailments. While we do quickly and effectively eliminate back and neck pain, it’s not the only goal. The objective is to restore and optimize human health. In fact, according to a statement from The Association of Chiropractic Colleges, “The purpose of chiropractic is to optimize health.”
Why is Chiropractic important?
It´s simple, spinal damage or injury at any age can misalign bones and shift the head off-center. The result is stress on the nervous system, muscle spasms, postural distortions and spinal decay ultimately degrading overall health. Nerves going to all parts of your body can be affected. Correcting the spine can alleviate stress, pain and discomfort allowing the body to heal and function properly. Chiropractic is for everyone from 0 to 101.
