As the pillar structure of the body, the spine provides stability and support for the body, and protection of the spinal cord. Addressing spinal alignment, joint movement, and posture are key to health. Spinal alignment is at the root of Structural Chiropractic. In particular, it is the proper functioning of the nervous system that is so important to one’s health that chiropractic addresses. Where the joints are not in good alignment or motion, there may be irritation to the nerves that may result in pain. Adjusting the body helps remediate this pain, sometimes immediately, other times it may take several visits as the body heals and adapts to proper positioning.
