The body treats the restricted motion and soft tissue damage of a malfunctioning spinal joint like a broken bone. The reduction in range of motion, scar tissue, and irritation to the nervous system can impair the function of other tissues, organs, and systems of your body. The body responds to the dysfunctional spinal joint by depositing calcium on adjoining joint surfaces attempting to “splint” them together. Given enough time, bone spurs, fusion, and an irreversible condition results.
An effective form of care, specific spinal adjustments help return spinal bones to their normal position and movement. Repeated adjustments help retrain the supporting muscles and ligaments. With better joint motion, the normal healing process can begin.
