Spinal Decay- Your body adapts to uncorrected spinal stress by depositing calcium into affected joint surfaces, ligaments, and connective tissues.  As if the body is trying to mend a broken bone, it attempts to 'repair' the malfunctioning spinal joint by joining the two segments together!  We call this slow, relentless, degenerative process 'spinal decay.'  The second phase of decay is the result of the body's attempt to stabilize and 'splint' the malfunctioning spinal joint.  The purpose of chiropractic care is to locate areas of the spine that are not working right and use specific 'adjustments' to improve its function and structure.

Scoliosisis a sideways bending of the spine which shows up as abnormal posture and then finally, deformity.  If allowed to advance, it can interfere with the lungs, heart, and other vital organs.  In the beginning, when it is easiest to correct, there are rarely symptoms.  However, you may notice a high shoulder or low hip makes clothing fit poorly.  Back and leg pains may develop[ but are overlooked as merely 'growing pains.'  Neglect is the biggest danger.

Whiplash is a trauma which occurs from a sudden acceleration deceleration event most commonly due to an auto accident.  Upon impact, your body pushes deeply into your seat.  Your head, momentarily isolated by your neck, delays its reaction while your body quickly reaches the limits of your seat belt.  Then, your body instantly changes directions, moving forward to the limits of your seat belt.  Now, your head starts moving backward in the opposite direction!  Unrestrained by a seat belt, your head is jerked back and then forward beyond its normal limits.  Specific chiropractic spinal adjustments help to restore proper motion and position of individual spinal bones which can help assure proper healing.
