Specific Chiropractic Adjustments in Springfield, IL

Specific chiropractic adjustments are the most effective treatment for most forms of back pain. Subluxation–or the spine being out of proper alignment–is part of the reason for pain in almost every case of back pain. If bones in the spine are far enough out of alignment, they can irritate nerves and cause nerve pain in the arm or leg. Sometimes nerve pressure causes numbness, tingling, weakness, heaviness, or tight muscles instead of or in addition to pain. Specific chiropractic adjustments restore proper alignment and relieve pain and pressure associated with it. A well aligned spine will help you to get back to doing the things you enjoy most.
