We all are susceptible to mechanical, chemical, and mental wear and tear on our bodies and mind. This degenerative process typically presents itself in two ways: macro and micro trauma.
This refers to pain due to trauma to the body, such as a car crash or bad fall.
This can also be called a repetitive stress injury.
If you’ve ever been in a car accident, played a sport, fell down or just bumped into something too hard, it’s very possible that you are not functioning at your best due to a misalignment.
While there are many potential mechanical or structural causes for misalignment like a car accident, sports, falling, or bumping into something hard there are also chemical reasons. These can be caused by smoking or drinking excessively or even just have a poor diet.
Although none of us are immune to the wear and tear process, Chiropractic helps to remove postural imbalances and structural misalignments that can accumulate in our bodies over time. Chiropractic works by restoring your own inborn ability to be healthy. For your body to remain healthy, your nervous system must function well. For your nervous system to function well it must be free of interference. By restoring spinal function with Chiropractic adjustments, nerve interference by misaligned vertebrae is removed, thus allowing optimal nervous system function and improved health.
