It may be obvious that you need to see a chiropractor such as Dr. Ben if you are experiencing neck pain, back pain, hip pain, headaches, numbness or curvature of the spine. However, many people don't realize that chiropractic care has an excellent record of success helping many health conditions. Maintaining a healthy and well-aligned spine is extremely important and is the most often overlooked key to staying healthy.
Chiropractic treatments called adjustments are comfortable, safe, and highly effective. People of all ages can receive chiropractic care to stay healthy, including infants and the elderly. Years of training, education, and experience enable Dr. Ben to determine whether chiropractic care can benefit you and your family. Dr. Ben is a highly educated, caring professional, sensitive to individual needs.
Chiropractic began development in 1895 in Davenport, Iowa. Doctors of Chiropractic specialize in locating and correcting joint injuries known as Subluxation (stuck joints). A Vertebral Subluxation or misalignment can occur in one or moveable joints of the spine or other joints such as shoulders, elbows, knees, and ankles. These injuries are commonly caused by stresses and impacts to the body from poor posture, poor sleeping habits, slips and falls, vehicular accidents, sports impacts, strenuous exercise, work injuries, childhood falls, even the birth process.
Vertebral Subluxations cause dangerous stress to the spinal cord and the delicate spinal nerves which exit the spine between the spinal bones. This causes irritation to the nerves and interferes with their ability to function properly. This nerve interference causes the body to lose its ability to function optimally and ill health eventually results. Though serious even in their early stages, subluxations are often not painful.
