Chiropractic care is a non-surgical, drugless approach to health care that focuses on the relationship between the spine and nervous system. It’s an effective way to treat many types of musculoskeletal complaints including neck pain, low back pain, sciatica, headaches and more.
Chiropractic adjustments are performed by specially trained chiropractors to help improve nerve function and reinstate the natural ability of your body’s joints.Joints are the places where two bones meet. They allow for movement and flexibility of the body. When there is a popping sound, it means that air or gas has been released from between the joints.
How a chiropractor can help you Improve your Posture
A chiropractor can help you improve poor posture through adjustments that realign the body and relieve pressure on the nerves, muscles, bones, ligaments and tendons of the neck, shoulders and back. The result is better alignment which leads to less pain in those areas as well as increased mobility throughout the entire body. It doesn’t matter if you are young or old; everyone should be concerned about their spinal health because we all know how much damage bad posture can do over time!
