The Beginner’s Guide to Chiropractic
The spine is designed to protect the spinal chord, it’s like amour for the vital messages being sent from your body to your brain.
Wear and tear to your spine can happen gradually, as through bad posture, or suddenly, as through sports injury. This impacts on the messages being sent to and from your brain along the central nervous system.
