Many people think chiropractors are back doctors but in actuality, they are also doctors of the nervous system.

Chiropractors care for the entire musculo-skeletal system.  Do you have an ache in your shoulder?  Have you got sore feet?  Do your joints throb?  Have you sprained or strained a wrist or an ankle?  Chiropractors can treat all these conditions.  It’s not just your back that has muscles and bones.

Why we have a reputation as back doctors

The reason for the apparent focus on the “back” is that the nerves travel within the spinal column of the back and neck. These nerves carry messages sent from the brain to the body and from the body back to the brain.  So, by adjusting the alignment of your spine, your chiropractor affects the nerves directly.  Therefore, chiropractic care affects far more than just your back.

When your nervous system is disrupted, stressed or irritated, problems result.  The messages the brain sends and receives get distorted. A common cause of distorted messages is a misalignment of the upper neck.

The nervous system controls and coordinates every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body.  Therefore, distorted messages can cause many different health problems in your body.  In conclusion, that is why reducing a troubling misalignment can help many health problems.

Reducing misalignments can help many health problems

Are distorted messages giving you or someone you know headaches? Neck pain? Back pain? Digestive issues? Hormone imbalances? Sleep problems? You don’t need to “learn to live with it.”
