How does chiropractic treatment work?
Chiropractors use their hands to improve and restore normal movement to restricted and painful joints of the spine and the body as a whole. Restricted or abnormal joint movement may create strain on the various components of a joint including the cartilage, muscle, ligaments and nerves.
Regular check-up appointments help to keep your joints moving well and are designed to help you stay active and therefore healthy.
