Millions of nerves travel throughout the human frame to control the function and physiology of your body. Spinal joints that are out of alignment or not moving properly can affect your health by irritating delicate spinal nerves. When irritated, these nerves alert your brain that something is wrong. Symptoms, including pain, are usually the result. Nerve signals are also sent to your muscles to stabilize and protect the area.
You may feel stiff, sore, and tired. As opposed to taking pain-masking drugs, which can be dangerous to your health, chiropractic care seeks to locate the source of your symptoms and address the underlying cause, so the problem doesn’t keep occurring.
