How Does Chiropractic Care Help?

Chiropractic treatment looks to identify and correct the underlying cause of your problems. In most cases that is misalignment and abnormal biomechanics of the joints in your spine or any other part of the body. When your spine is out of alignment it can also cause a "pinch" in the nerves. When those nerves are pinched it can cause pain, numbness, or tingling that can radiate down into the arms or legs. Chiropractic adjustments correct the misalignment of the spine and relieve pressure on the nerve supply.
