A Chiropractor is a health care professional specializing in disorders affecting the musculoskeletal system as well as the nervous system. Chiropractors treat back pain, neck pain, sciatica, as well as pain in joints of the arms and legs, headaches and other conditions affecting overall health and well-being. They practice a drug free approach that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment.
Subluxations of the spine are common causes of neck pain, back pain and sciatica. Subluxations of the spine are misalignments of your vertebrae which in turn can affect discs, nerves and ligaments. A subluxation of the neck for instance, can not only result in severe headaches, but be responsible for lower back pain, face, arm, elbow, shoulder pain, numbness and more!
There are many reasons for subluxations of the spine: poor posture, heavy lifting, the aging process, sports, or car accidents. Chiropractic health is essential to overall wellness for people of all ages.
