When most people hear about a spinal subluxation or spinal misalignment, they think that it only happens with accidents or injury. The truth is, almost everyone suffers from a misaligned spine at some point in their life. It doesn’t matter if you’re an athlete or a couch potato, everyday activities from walking to sitting at a computer or watching TV can cause it to happen.
These repetitive traumas can, over time, have the same result as an injury and can even be as bad as a serious car accident. When your spine is out of alignment for a long time, it can cause you to live in poor health, which can lead to spinal degeneration.
Spinal degeneration can result in very serious neurological problems and other health issues, and the longer it goes on, the harder it is to address. Chiropractic care is essential to improving this spinal misalignment, and the sooner you start, the better off you’ll be. Let’s take a look at the various stages of spinal degeneration, the health issues they cause, and how chiropractic can help keep you healthy and avoid degeneration.
