We're glad you asked! Ever stop and think why? Why do I have heartburn, why does my child have asthma, WHY? It's not because we're lacking medicine, but rather something in the body is not functioning properly. When we give our bodies a chance to function better it's amazing what they can self correct :) Chiropractic care restores health and prevents injury by improving the structural integrity of the body, primarily the spine. The brain communicates with the rest of the body via the spinal cord and nervous system. When functioning perfectly, this communication is uninterrupted, and the messages go to and from the brain without interference.
Addressing the Root of the Problem
The nervous system serves as the body's wiring. If this wiring is interferred with the signal does not reach the intended body part, and symptoms such as pain, numbness, tingling or other illness of the end organ or muscle may result. Such interferences can manifest anywhere along your spine. Pain in your arm or hand may actually be caused by a problem in your neck, where the nerves connecting to that hand originate.
