I know there is so much controversy between chiropractic and medical care, but if it were not for chiropractic I would still be in pain. A car accident left me with constant lower back pain. I tried everything from painkillers to preparing to have surgery. I heard stories from my friends who had surgery and to this day wish they never had it. So I decided to go to a chiropractor before the surgery and I am so thankful that I did. My back pains are gone and I am living my life to the fullest and pain free.

Proper spinal movement is aligned with flexibility and strength. Having adequate flexibility of tissues around the spine and pelvis allows full, normal spinal movement, prevents abnormal force on the joints, and decreases the possibility of injury. 

Stretching exercises prepare muscles for activity. Stretching before and after a workout can prevent muscles strain, soreness and help to avoid injuries. Stretching exercises will help improve your flexibility and strengthen muscles.

Improper spinal movement causes nerve irritation, inflammation or interference at the spinal nerve root level.  This will cause dysfunction of the nerve system and ultimately decrease the function of the body area that the nerve controls.  This is Chiropractic 101. yoga_on_rock.jpg

First and foremost a chiropractic spinal adjustment restores normal motion into a fixated, locked-up or subluxated joint.  People often tell me they don't need a chiropractor because they stretch or exercise.  That's like saying I don't need a dentist because I brush my teeth.  When a spinal bone is fixated or subluxated, there is only one thing that can correctly restore motion to that joint, Chiropractic. dancing.jpg

Do this real quick.  Find a rubber band, hair tie or piece of string. Wrap it tightly around your first finger.  As you wait a few seconds, you will see the changes already taking place from the lack of blood supply, oxygen and nerve flow.  This is symbolic of what a spinal fixated, locked-up or subluxated joint does to the adjacent nerve root.  Now, you can imagine what would happen to your finger if you left the rubber band on your finger, right?  It would rot, die and fall off!  Now, imagine what happens to the spinal nerve roots if this problem is not corrected.  With the rubber band still on your finger, move your finger back and forth (exercise), rub it vigorously (massage).  See, you just exercised and massaged your finger and the problem is still there. You can even pop a pain killer or anti-inflammatory.  Still there.  Now, here is the easy part.  Take the rubber band off and fix the problem.  This is what a chiropractic adjustment does, removing the nerve impingement, restoring normal nerve flow and function.
