A patient’s back or neck can often be restricted or unstable months or years before it becomes a problem and they show up in a chiropractor’s office. Just because you don’t have pain doesn’t necessarily mean you are perfectly healthy. If you have experienced a trauma or accident, or some sort of repetitive stress in your life, like most of us have, muscle, ligament and joint injuries can occur weakening the area and making it more susceptible to future injuries.
While many people take medication to cover their symptoms, the dysfunction that caused pain still persists. Getting to the core and finding the cause of the problem is what makes chiropractic different in achieving lasting results.
