Effective Chiropractic Treatments
When left untreated, back pain can lead to long term health conditions. Your spinal column and nervous system control the function of your organs. When your spine is out of alignment, it negatively affects the rest of your body resulting in digestive problems, head aches, muscle spasms and much more.
Discs act as your body’s shock absorbers and shock distributors protecting your bony vertebrae and cushioning the impact of a jumping and steps? If one of these discs is herniated (often referred to as bulging discs or slipped discs) your spine can’t function properly. Movement becomes painful.
Auto Accidents/ Whiplash
Whiplash often occurs as a result of an auto accident. The sudden change in momentum causes the head and neck to swing forward and backward in a whip-like motion. This quick jarring motion can cause significant harm to the bones, ligaments, nerves and muscles of the neck and upper back. It is important to be checked out after an accident. Whiplash can be serious and lead to lifelong pain if left untreated.
