Your spinal cord is the system your body uses to pass information from your brain to every other part of your body. If a vertebra in your spine is misaligned, it may be putting pressure on a nerve. Even a small amount of pressure can disrupt the information traveling over that nerve.
If your nervous system is being compromised, your immune system may be compromised and malfunctioning. Chiropractors are specially trained to treat and protect the nervous system by relieving pressure on nerves. By doing this chiropractors are allowing your body to function at its max potential.
Chiropractic May Be The Answer
There are marshmallow like pads between your vertebrae called intervertebral discs. The discs are very tough, but can be damaged. The discs provide for movement in the spine. When discs start to degenerate the spine can become less mobile, and may even start to fuse together.
The discs also provide space between the vertebrae. This is important because nerves pass through the spaces that are created by the discs. Discs also act as a shock absorbers. When movement occurs, the jelly solution inside the disc has the ability to expand and compress. If the spine become misaligned, a disc can become buldged or herniated. In some cases it may even rupture. A misalignment is not the only cause for this problem. Age can cause the disc to become weak and dehydrated.
If you are struggling with back or neck pain, chiropractic care may be the best treatment option for you. Chiropractic is one of the least invasive and safest options for conditions of the spine and discs.
Do you have lower back pain, a pinched nerve, sciatica, radiating pain into the arms or legs, neck pain, or a variety of symptoms related to damaged or degenerative discs? Spinal Decompression may help you find relief.
