Any number of factors, such as falls, accidents, stress, tension, or over-use can cause improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine, called subluxations. These events can interfere with the vital exchange between the nerves, tissues and organs. Although many people think of back and neck pain when they think of chiropractic medicine, in fact subluxations can result in a multitude of symptoms. And that is where chiropractic is different: we treat the source of the problem, not just the symptom.
Many of today’s health problems are caused by chronic stress and conditions of modern living and working. Prolonged mental and physical stress may lead to tension headaches, backaches, digestive issues, and an impaired immune system. Massage has a multitude of benefits including general relaxation, muscle relaxation, reduced anxiety, and relief from the negative effects of stress.
