Many people come to us for pain relief, and for good reason. They say that over 80% of the population at some point will experience back pain. Nerves can get compressed or impaired and this irritation can result in malfunction of that nerve. In chiropractic we call this irritation a subluxation. Nerves that perceive pain are called sensory nerves. A disturbance in nerve function can lead to severe pain if a sensory nerve is irritated. For example sciatica is a term used to describe pain in the sciatic nerve due to irritation of that nerve in the lower back.
We are experts at analyzing the spinal column for subluxation. By doing this we are getting to the root cause of your pain, not masking the pain with medication.
