About Your Back

Your spine is made up of 24 movable bones called vertebrae that occasionally become stuck or slip out of place. When this occurs, it is referred to as vertebral subluxation or a misalignment. These subluxations can block nerve flow because they can pinch surrounding nerves. A blocked impulse can lead to many things, such as muscle aches, headaches, back and neck pain, numbness, and tingling.

In addition to the general health benefits that chiropractic care can have on your body, chiropractic care can also be beneficial during pregnancy and for certain childhood conditions.
