When one or more vertebrae go out of alignment and put pressure on the nerves, it is common for headaches, neck pain, radiating arm pain, back pain, or radiating leg pain to develop. Chiropractors are uniquely trained to locate and correct misaligned vertebrae (known as subluxations) which “pinch” or interfere with nerves, and often are found to be the underlying cause of a wide variety of health issues. After a thorough examination (which may include taking x-rays), if it is discovered that you have a spinal subluxation, a chiropractic adjustment is then given.
This is a hands-on procedure performed by Dr. Berglund, applying a precise and gentle force to the misaligned spinal joints. The adjustment helps to restore normal vertebral position and remove nerve stress. This not only helps relieve your pain, but it also helps correct the cause of your pain and lessen the likelihood of it returning.
Dr. Berglund encourages his patients to maintain the health of their spine and nervous system with regular chiropractic adjustments. Just as you don’t feel a tooth cavity in the early stages of its development, you don’t always feel pain or other effects of a subluxation until it’s been there awhile. Call our office today and schedule to have your spine checked for subluxations. Get adjusted. Get healthy. Stay healthy. Naturally!
