     Every year millions of people are troubled by back pain.  Every year a growing number of these back pain sufferers seek help from a doctor of chiropractic.  Once you understand the basic make-up of the spine, you can easily see how this happens.  The spine consists of twenty-six (vertebrae), twenty-four of which are moveable.  Running through “holes” in the vertebrae is the spinal cord, which is made up of many, many nerves whose job is to carry messages to and from the brain and various organs of the body.

     Modern life is filled with potential hazards to the spine–falls, bumps, twists.  Suddenly those nerves that reach out from between the vertebrae aren’t sending the proper messages to their assigned organs and a health problem other than the back develops.  When the chiropractor restores the “offending” vertebrae to its proper place, the condition starts to improve.

     For back pains, a chiropractor is specially trained to help you, but don’t be surprised if other health problems benefit, too.
