Alignment – The Often-Overlooked Foundation of Health

You would never go to a mechanic and question why they suggested getting an alignment on your car or truck, yet when many people hear a chiropractor suggest that you need an alignment yourself, you may hesitate or scoff.

Why is that? – Most simply it is because you haven’t really ever thought about it.

The human body is made up of a huge array of parts and piece – bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, veins, and tissue. None of us are easy on our bodies. They go through a lot on a daily basis in every day life.

We get bumped, banged, we take impacts from hits and falls, growth spurts, car accidents, really it is a wonder any of us remain in good shape at all.

A body “out of alignment” is experiencing what is known as a subluxation. Subluxation is the medial term for a misalignment. When a misalignment occurs, it can cause other parts of your structure to become over worked in an effort to make up for it. This causes undue wear and tear as well as potential cutting off of natural electrical impulses by way of the nervous system.

Over time left out of alignment simple correctable subluxation can lead to breakdown, damage, and even disease.

That is where chiropractic care comes in. Chiropractors are medically trained physicians who specialize in spinal realignment and resulting health implications. They use manual adjustment techniques to guide your body back into proper working form allowing it to heal itself.

Chiropractic helps target and eliminate the root cause of pain and illness and can be used preventatively and proactively throughout your entire life to help keep you feeling your very best.

Routine maintenance isn’t just for your car. This type of schedule needs to be kept on your body as well. The better you care for it the better it will treat you as you age.
