Regular chiropractic care is similar to wearing braces.

A dentist recommends braces to help improve the overall quality of oral health and function. A chiropractor recommends regular adjustments to help improve quality of life and function of the spine.

How do you know if you need braces?
After a dental evaluation, improper positioning of the teeth or jaw that interfere with bite and alignment help assist the dentist in making their recommendation for braces.

How do you know if you need chiropractic?
After a chiropractic evaluation, misaligned vertebrae (vertebral subluxation) in the spine that interfere with or impinge the nerves help the chiropractor make their recommendations for care.

Benefits to braces?
Besides the overall improvement in appearance of the teeth, braces may help enhance your bite or chew, and provide an overall contribution to the quality of your teeth and gums.

Benefits to regular chiropractic care?
Besides the overall improvement in posture and mobility, regular chiropractic may enhance the innate power of the body to heal itself due to the emphasis on the relationship between structure and function that is coordinated by the neurological system.

Consistency is key.

You don’t just wear your braces for a short time and expect great results, you consistently wear them with repetitive modifications made in the tension of the braces.

So, too, with consistent chiropractic adjustments.

Regular chiropractic care allows repetitive adjustments to help reinforce normal position in the ligaments, muscles and bones around the spinal cord and nerve roots. This can help create less severe vertebral subluxation and may create better spinal alignment and overall functionality.

The old saying is, if everyone could you see your spine like they do your smile, more people would give regular chiropractic care the opportunity to enhance their quality of life!
