When viewed from the side, an adult spine has a natural S-shaped curve consisting of three regions. This curve functions like a coiled spring to absorb shock, maintain balance, and allow a range of motion throughout the spinal column. First, there’s the cervical region located in the neck with a slight concave curve. In the middle section is the thoracic region, where the curvature has a gentle convex shape. The third region is the lumbar area, located in the lower back; it has a slight concave curve. It is essential to have good posture, whether standing, walking, or sitting , to maintain the spine’s natural curves, ensuring the least strain is placed on the spine during movement or weight0bearing activities.

Chiropractic care is based on the idea that much of the pain you experience can be addressed by returning your body, especially the spine, into its state of natural alignment. Through manual and technological manipulation of the body, chiropractors restore the alignment that was thrown off by injury, repetitive stress, or the normal wear and tear on the body from day-to-day activity.
