A chiropractor provides chiropractic services which are centered on helping the spine to move as nature intended. When the spine does not experience proper motion pain can result in many areas of the body and even cause problematic issues with nerve endings, joints, ligaments and muscles.
Some of the common areas of the body where pain is felt due to a spine that is not moving properly are the back, neck, and head. Extremities such as pain in the hands and wrists or even down the leg are also common areas for pain because of a problem in the spine.
The primary way a chiropractor helps his or her patients get out of pain is by providing what is referred to as a chiropractic adjustment by computerized chiropractic services. Essentially this is a gentle and effective way of manipulating the spine so that restrictions in the joints of the spine are removed and it becomes properly aligned.
The basic principle of chiropractic services is that living a pain-free life in a state of overall general health and wellbeing depends, at least in part, on having a spine that moves properly. Proper motion of the spine contributes to proper alignment of the body, good posture and body balance. Chiropractors test for a misaligned spine and correct misalignments with chiropractic adjustments.
