How do I know if Chiropractic can help me?

Your nervous system controls and regulates every cell of your body. It maintains and monitors all processes and actions of every system in your body. When your nervous system doesn’t work right, you don’t work right. And when you don’t work right, you can more easily get sick or injured. It is as simple as that.

Nerve compromise can result from postural distortions that are easily revealed with a few simple tests. We’ve simplified them so you can conduct them at home with a minimal amount of time. Naturally, they aren’t a substitute for a professional evaluation!

Simply study the pictures, look at yourself in the mirror or have a friend look for you. You can look for them too!
Neglected, spinal problems may worsen and make correction more difficult and expensive later. Not to mention more painful and stressful!

A great place to begin is to notice postural distortions that show up in the head, neck and shoulders:

Notice if one shoulder is higher than the other or if the head tilts to one side. Both could be indications of the types of problems that respond nicely to chiropractic care.

A common problem is a forward leaning head. Besides a source of fatigue, this is a common sign of neurological compromise in the neck, shoulders and into the arms and wrist. We feel it as tight, sore neck and shoulders because the neck muscles are working harder than they are supposed to when the head is this far forward.

If you find you have these conditions please have an evaluation before the problems become a hindrance to you fully enjoying your life !
