There are 206 bones in the human body. There is almost as many muscles in the human body as bones. Two hundred muscles to be exact. This is amazing since we humans tend to try and take care of our bones but take our muscles for granted. Our muscles are just as complicated as our bones in that they are quite complex in the work they do as well as in what can go wrong with them. Muscles can have spasms they can get strained or tight become inflamed or injured. Visible knots may appear on the damaged muscle. This is all very painful.

The Adjustment (this is not your grandmother’s adjustment) Time changes everything. This is true in Dallas GA chiropractic as well. Through the years of research and discovery one thing we have learned is how the human body works. We are made of flesh and bone with muscles and nerves supporting all this. The nervous system directly affects every other system in our body. If something is wrong with our body’s alignment then the nerves are displaced and it throws our whole system out of tune. This is why the alignment is probably the most critical part of your healing process.
