Many people wonder if chiropractors are good for their health. The answer is yes and no. They can help you with some of your problems, but they can also hurt you.
If you don’t think chiropractors do any spinal adjustments, try walking around and feeling the pressure. There will be no real adjustment of the spine at all. Most of what chiropractors do is diagnose problems and treat them.
Chiropractors believe that ailments are a result of misaligned bones and misaligned nerves. They do adjustment to correct the problem and treat the condition. There is no real spinal adjustment.
Chiropractors believe that when misaligned, nerve endings have trouble receiving signals from the brain. In other words, the brain cannot read the signals correctly.
What chiropractors do is administer spinal adjustments in order to change the alignment of the nerve endings. They also apply heat and other methods. Sometimes they can do it all by themselves but that rarely happens.
