Why Should You And Your Family Have Your Spinal Examination?
Your spine is your life line. Proper nerve messages from the brain to all body organs, glands and tissues is of the utmost importance to keep you in maximum function and health. Examination of the system for disruptions of nerve messages is a chiropractor's job. Subluxations (pinched nerves from misaligned spinal vertebrae) is a cause of many health problems and conditions. With early detection, subluxations can be corrected and stop future ill health and spinal damage.
