The nerves that exit the spinal cord touch EVERY cell in your body. The nerves that exit the lumbar spine (low back) not only innervate the muscles and bones that are in pain, but they also innervate the organs of abdomen. The nerves that innervate the legs also exit the lumbar spine. We frequently see patients with lower back pain with constipation or diarhhea, pain that radiates from the lower back to one or both legs, and/or numbness and tingling in the feet (just to name a few). Patients who get adjusted not only get relief from pain but from these other symptoms.
The nerves that exit the cervical spine (neck) not only innervate the muscles and bones of the neck, but also innervate both arms, and the head. Adjusting the neck can not only relieve neck pain, but can help with pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in one or both arms. Cervical adjustments can effectively reduce or eliminate headaches and those debilitating migraines!
Conservative chiropractic care encompasses a regular treatment plan of adjustments aimed at helping to relieve pain and discomfort. Conditions that can be treated through chiropractic care include:
