Are chiropractic adjustments really effective for back pain and neck pain?
Yes, many people have experienced significant relief from neck pain, back pain, and injury after chiropractic adjustments. When the spine isn’t properly aligned, it causes the muscles to work harder and puts pressure on other soft tissues. In addition, it can impact the nervous system, which sends pain signals to the brain. By restoring alignment through chiropractic adjustments, the pressure on the soft tissues is eliminated and the nervous system can function properly.
