Chiropractic care is generally used treat conditions that arise from problems with the spine and spinal alignment. Many don't realize it can also have an effect on overall health and wellness, which includes weight loss and diet.

Nerves on the spinal column connect the brain to the rest of the human body. When the pathways are misaligned, signals to the brain are hindered, affecting our control hunger and eating cues. Subluxations of the spine can also result in chronic pain or decreased range of motion, which makes physically activcities difficult to achieve. Regular chiropractic adjustments by Dr. Chelsey can effectively relieve subluxations and provide clear path for weight loss and healthy life.
