What is Chiropractic?

With today's high stress environment and fast-paced working conditions, the body is constantly under the element of stress that makes it susceptible to injuries and other symptoms. When the body is stressed, the muscles are in constant tension which in turn pulls the vertebrae of your spine and neck out of alignment. These misalignments are manifested through symptoms such as lack of sleep, restlessness and fatigue, lethargy, and ultimately muscle aches and pains.
