Misaligned vertebrae limit range of motion and cause pain
This is the basis for our practice at Hayes Family Chiropractic- the idea that due to the constant accumulation of spinal compression, abrasive movements, poor posture and other more intangible factors, the spinal column is constantly being moved out of alignment. The effect of this misalignment has a ripple effect on health that begins by limiting motion and causing pain and, if left alone for long enough, can compound to cause more serious musculoskeletal conditions. The problem we face as chiropractors is that far too many people wait far too long to address their mechanical back pain issues.
Why waiting until pain strikes is counterproductive
The body is its own force of nature: as forces shift the spine out of alignment, the body learns that this is the new order for the spine and your muscles and ligaments respond by supporting this misalignment. The result, after long periods of time, is abnormal curvature of the spine, limited range of motion and the development of serious spinal conditions. At Hayes Family Chiropractic, we urge people to take a proactive approach to their back pain: addressing mechanical dysfunction at an early stage gives us the best possible chance of providing true pain relief through mobilization of the spine. Chiropractic is a well-researched, effective method for correcting mechanical-type back dysfunction, including subluxation.
Chiropractic is a healing profession
We don’t use drugs, and we don’t use surgery; instead we focus on the root causes of your back pain and dysfunction and set a course for treatment using conservative modalities that are proven effective for improving spinal mobility and decreasing pain.
