Structure affects Function

Would you play softball with a tennis racket?

Is there a difference between $20 shoes and $200 shoes?

Yes to both!

Because structure affects function! There is a huge difference between $20 shoes and $200 shoes - quality, how comfortable they are, how long they last, etc.... We can find examples everywhere.
It's the same with us. Our bodies are naturally designed for performance and health. Your heart is designed to pump blood ... your lungs are built to inhale oxygen... your stomach is used to hold food and start the digesting process... your shoulders are different then your hips...etc. etc.

And let's not forget the spine! The bones of the back are set up to PROTECT your nerve system. Your nerve system controls and coordinates every single function in the body directly and indirectly. Your ability to digest food, fight infection, make blood cells, make hormones are depended on the nerve system!!

A vertebral subluxation (spinal misalignments) is a change in structure of the spine that affects the function of the nerve system. It causes altered spinal biomechanics, abnormal body function, it drains energy, and causes many other problems.

The only thing left is to determine how long you are willing to tolerate this altered function for yourself, your friends, and loved ones.

The goal of regular chiropractic care is to restore normal alignment and function in the spine allowing you to function at your best.!!
