Most of us know that we should visit the Dentist a couple times a year to get our teeth cleaned and make sure we don't have any cavities or more severe problems that need to be fixed before they start to cause problems. Well, many people have realized the benefits of seeing a Chiropractor on a regular basis as well. Just like our teeth, when there is a problem in our spine, and we don't take care of it, it gets worse and worse over time and begins to break down, or degenerate, causing pain. Regular visits to the Chiropractor can prevent degeneration and help keep your spine healthy into the future.
Take a look at this picture. As a Chiropractor here in Mankato, MN, I have seen X-rays of hundreds of spines. Some very healthy, and some in very bad shape, usually accompanied by pain. Take care of your spine, you only get one!
