Chiropractors say that even small amounts of pressure on the nerves exiting the spine may lead to long-term health issues. A chiropractor will carefully examine the way your spine is aligned. The World Chiropractic Alliance now says that misalignments can lead to pressure on the nerves that exit the spine. And this pressure could be the cause of chronic problems.
The chiropractors call these misalignments and neurology problems 'vertebral subluxations'. Correcting them may be the key to solving back problems and other chronic ailments, they say. But the longer you have had the subluxation, the harder it will be to cure. For many people, it may be difficult to relate a distant injury to the spine to current problems. However, a visit to the chiropractor may help you start to resolve the issue.
