Chiropractic is a straight forward method of adjusting the joints of the body to improve the alignment and mobility of the skeleton, and through this process help the nervous system to work more efficiently. The purpose of chiropractic care is to realign and rebalance your body to relieve pain and discomfort, and increase mobility.
A misalignment of the joints can occur for many reasons; some of the most common are incorrect lifting, car or sporting accidents, falls, stress, and poor posture. This can lead to pain, aching, numbness, pins and needles, or restricted mobility.
