One of the biggest misconceptions of how misalignments of the vertebra take place is from experiencing some sort of major accident or injury, when in actuality the majority of misalignments take place from every day stresses. (ex. Repetitive bending, lifting, driving, sitting… life stresses : )) When these vertebrae misalign, they will then pinch the corresponding nerve and this is what cause the discomfort and symptoms the patient is experiencing.
At West Side Chiropractic our examinations procedures are geared toward detection and correction of these misalignments. The procedures we use are therefore specifically selected for your spine and nervous system health. This will make each chiropractic adjustment specific to the patient’s spine and relieve the overall pressure that is being placed upon the nerves.
