If you’ve been to a chiropractor and had a spinal adjustment, you may experience an immediate feeling of relief, a certain “loosening” from the stress your body was under. The problem is that most of us return to the habits that put us into the chiropractor’s office in the first place. We slump over our desks at work, we lift heavy objects incorrectly, we don’t follow up on our daily stretches. When you work with a chiropractor, that relationship is no different than when you are under the care of a physician. It is a partnership—chiropractic adjustments are good for you if you do your part. Eventually, you will need fewer adjustments, but as a creature of movement, it is wise to get occasional adjustments throughout your life.
