How Are Spinal Misalignments Treated?
The most common procedure used by doctors of chiropractic is a chiropractic adjustment.  Chiropractors detect the areas of the spine or other joints which are restricted in their movement or misaligned.  These misalignments can cause pain, inflammation and reduced function.  Adjustments are gentle, comfortable and highly effective in treating misalignments.  Just like exercise, diet and proper rest, maintaining a healthy and well-aligned spine is important part of overall health.
