Practically anyone could benefit from chiropractic. At some point in their lives, people have suffered a fall, succumb to a sports injury, or have been involved in some type of auto accident or work injury. Any one of these incidents can cause spinal misalignments and disrupt normal joint function. If left untreated, it can lead to longer term problems. The job of Chiropractors is to help correct these misalignments and allow the body to heal and function properly.
