How Does Chiropractic Care Work?

Physical, chemical, and emotional stress affect how the brain communicates with our body. Examples of physical stressors are hard labor, falls, injuries, and accidents. Chemical stressors take the form of the substances that regularly enter the body, such as food, drink, and tobacco products. The emotions involved in everyday living are a common source of stress.

When the body experiences stress, the spine is put under tension. This tension causes misalignments, which place pressure on the nerves. Unwanted nerve pressure often results in the very nagging discomfort. This often presents as pain, numbness, and muscle spasms, that brings patients to the chiropractor. By pinpointing the interferences caused by daily stress, chiropractic care can adjust the source of the problem. Ultimately, this relieves corresponding symptoms and encouraging better health.
