Why Chiropractic?

chiropractic-spineMost people think that they should only see a chiropractor when they have neck or back pain. This is not true! It benefits you and your family tremendously to see a chiropractor even when you are feeling well and healthy.

Your children and love ones deserve chiropractic care as much as you do! Watch this video on Chiropractic for Kids and read our blogs to understand why children and pregnant women also need to have their spines checked regularly.

It is important to know that health is not about how you feel. It is about how your body functions.

When bones in your spine go out of alignment (also known as misalignments), your body is unable to function at its optimum. This is because misalignments in your spine can subject your nervous system to a lot of stress and this can adversely affect your bodily functions.

To get an illustration of how certain levels of our spine are related to certain muscles and organs of our body (through the corresponding exiting nerves) and their possible effects, please click on the chart.

Most of the time, you may not even know that your spine is out of alignment, as symptoms are usually absent during the initial phase of misalignments. By the time you feel pain or discomfort, much time (it could be days, months or years) usually has lapsed.

Therefore, it is important for your spine to be checked by a chiropractor regularly so that it stays well aligned and your body functions at its best. Just like your car needs to be checked by a mechanic regularly, the same goes for your body.
