Let me make two things perfectly clear... (1) A chiropractor, certainly a straight (real) chiropractor is NOT a fixer of bad backs and bad necks, though many people with bad backs and necks are helped with chiropractic adjustments.
(2) A (straight) chiropractor is NOT a bone doctor. Closer to the truth would be a "nerve doctor." (Yes, I know that I have a lot of nerve, but that's another issue.) The deal with the spine is that it houses, it protects the nervous system, along with the skulls.
What do you care about your nervous system, unless you have something like Parkinson's or MS... something that a typical. medically acculturated person would go to a neurologist for? YOU SHOULD CARE ABOUT YOUR NERVOUS SYSTEM. Why? It runs everything. It is the master system, controlling and coordinating every system, organ, tissue and cell in the body. When there is interference to this control and coordination (Vertebral Subluxation Complex... VSC), dysfunction... dis-ease results, eventually disease. We're at talking CAUSE here. the root of things, bad or good.
Chiropractic is the only profession that is concerned with, tasked with the CORRECTION of VSC.

This is critical information. Share this with everyone you know, be they local or on another continent, be they young or old, be they very ill or apparently healthy. EVERYONE needs to see this.
