Chiropractic adjustments help maintain proper spinal MOTION and one main benefit is proper NUTRITIONAL flow to and from the discs of your spine. Nutrients suspended in fluid (made from water) surround your spine and help maintain proper disc height. These discs act as SHOCK ABSORBERS. Without proper motion, the disc material does not get oxygen, glucose (healthy sugar), and other required nutrients. The lack of proper nutrient flow is the beginning of the decay process of the spine. This decay causes arthritis, osteoporosis, nerve damage, and tissue damage.
