The human spine consists of vertebrae, discs, joints, and the muscle groups that allow the spine to twist, turn, and bend. Unfortunately, many forces (physical, chemical and/or emotion) can afflict this combination of moving and non-moving parts. Even the smallest subluxation, or joint imbalance, can limit joint motion, causing neck or back pain. Chiropractic spinal adjustment can relieve these problems. Dr. Kari Peteler uses manual or instrument-assisted techniques that deliver small but focused force to spinal components, shifting them back into position. With joint mobilization and spinal alignment neurological symptoms ease, muscular strain is reduced, and the body will move more freely.
