There are constant forces that are acting on the body and the spine. Such forces as gravity, which is constant, causes stressful forces on the spine which can be exacerbated by prolonged seating positions, poor posture, sudden movements, sleeping positions, muscular strength & weakness, imbalance in strength, age, weight, and of course previous injuries to name some. The spine and its musculature are constantly consciously and subconsciously adapting to these changing forces which can cause the vertabrae to be subluxated. Subluxations can lead to pain, weakness, and increased potential for injury.
Chiropractic has been shown to be a safe non-invasive non-pharmacological method to reducing pain in the low back, neck & shoulders, and certain headaches. This is why at 12th street chiropractic our motto is get adjusted.
