Subluxation of the spine means that certain joints have improper alignment and are putting pressure on the nervous system. Chiropractors adjust the spine to correct these subluxations, which improves alignment, releases pressure on the nervous system, and allows the body to move properly again. Proper movement provides flexibility and resilience which prevents injury, prevents premature degenerative changes, and allows us to heal when injuries occur. A free and clear nervous system allows us to meet stressful situations without having a strong stress response in our bodies. Meeting stressful situations gracefully allows us to make good decisions that create a constructive outcome and even possibly benefit others in our lives. Meeting goals at work, playing with our kids enthusiastically, and getting the most out of our exercise routine happen naturally with a healthy spine!
