Chiropractic care is the theory that spinal joint dysfunction can result in a variety of health conditions. However, if there is a miss alignment in your spine, over time the nerves in the spine become more and more pinched. Anyone who is experiencing any discomfort or pain in his or her back should consider an adjustment. A chiropractic doctor should, only perform this therapeutic procedure also known as “spinal manipulation” or “chiropractic adjustment”.
The purpose for this procedure is to correct any subluxations, or partial separation from the joints, that cause pain, muscle spasms, or any nerve irritations. Manipulating the affected joint and tissue will restore its ability to move, relieving pain and tension in the muscles. It is said, adjustments improve the health and wellness of the entire body as well.

Over 22 million Americans visit chiropractors every year, many of those seeking relief for their back and neck. What chiropractors do is use hands-on manipulation and other forms of treatment to restore the spine to its proper position. The idea behind this is that once the spine is aligned the body can naturally heal itself.
