Specific Chiropractic Care
Spinal joints can often become "locked up" and misaligned from their proper position. This condition is called Spinal Subluxation, and can lead to pain, muscle tightness or spasms, reduced motion, and nerve irritation. Subluxations can be caused by repeated stress over time from: poor posture, improper sleeping position, using one side of your body more than the other, computer use, picking up your child, cell phone use, poor lifting habits mechanics, etc. Subluxations can also be caused by single, more traumatic events such as: slips, falls, car wrecks, bike wrecks, lifting something too heavy, hitting your head, missing a step, shoveling snow, as well as many other ways.
Additionally, emotional stress, depression, and anxiety can cause subluxations and back or neck pain. Even toxins and pollutants from your environment can cause this problem to occur. This includes artificial sweeteners, cigarette smoke, MSG, food preservatives, as well as lead, mercury, excess sugar, and / or excess trans fats.
Subluxations interfere with your body's natural healing ability and keep your body from functioning at its full potential. Since there are so many things that can cause subluxation, is is completely possible that some people have this problem and don't even know it! That is why that everyone should be checked by a licensed chiropractor.
