The misalignments in our bodies can build up over months, even years. We may not feel them right away, but when the body has had enough, we feel pain, we may become tired and irritable. Keep in mind, that our spine is supposed to protect the nerves of our spinal cord. If the nerves are irritated, there are serious consequences for the entire body. The correlation between a misalignment of the spine and some of the symptoms we feel may not be immediately clear. For example, anxiety and asthma are not conditions we would normally attribute to a problem in our spine, yet chiropractic adjustments may work to reduce or even correct these conditions entirely.
