As a chiropractor, the main goal is to get the spine properly aligned and moving as it was designed.
Spinal misalignments or Subluxations, can lead to many symptoms. When two vertebrae put pressure on a nerve, it is much like stepping on a garden hose. However, in this case instead of interfering with the flow of water, the communication between the brain and the rest of the body is severely hindered. When a tissue in the body cannot receive a message from the brain it cannot function properly there becoming dysfunctional or diseased.
The image below shows how misalignments in certain areas of the spine can manifest into symptoms that in some cases we begin to feel.
