You get your teeth, eyes, and blood checked regularly, why not your spine?

Chiropractic is not a treatment, but it is a care for the entire body.
It is a holistic approach to good health and with many positive effects.
You shouldn’t wait until a disc problem is large to see a chiropractor but have regular visits and adjustments regularly.
More info after the jump:
What are Discs?
Between spinal bones are flexible pads that are called discs.
They give the spine the curve and flexibility which is why a flexible spine is much stronger than a straight one.
Research has revealed that discs in the spine are a main influence in lower back problems in adults.
As the body ages, the discs may lose fluid or damages may be caused by a subluxation complex, a condition that chiropractors can treat.
The disc is getting interfered with and this may causes bluges and will cause pain and discomfort in the body.
It will affect day to day activities such as lifting, walking, sitting, and even sneezing and coughing.
A disc cannot slip since it is knit tightly into the spine from both on top and bottom.
Vertebrae are the things that do slip which are also known as subluxations.
Degeneration of discs or subluxations in the spine may cause many serious problems from infections to endometriosis.
Many medical doctors have seen patients avoid serious surgeries because they decided to get care from a chiropractor before.
Surgery should be an option only as a last resort before more non-invasive care is used, such as chiropractic.
Chiropractors have been saving people from surgery for many years.
Reports of an MRI showing disc problems have been corrected with chiropractic care and adjustments.
One study has shown that 63% of patients had reduced herniation in the disc after seeing a chiropractor and 78% were able to return to work.
Surgery should be just a last and extreme resort because of the dangers and high failure rate. It should be considered after patients have exhausted all other attempts.
