The human spine is comprised of thousands of nerves, each one transmitting messages to the rest of your body. Over time the spinal column becomes compressed, inhibiting these nerves and causing pain and other issues in the process. As a doctor of chiropractic, Dr. Castro works to restore your health by realigning the spine through a variety of techniques.
From the top of your head to your toes, the health of your spine can affect the health of your entire body. Your spinal cord contains thousands of nerves that send messages to your back, brain, and other parts of your body. As people age, bone mass gradually decreases, and the spinal column becomes more compressed. When the spine is impacted, these nerves may become inhibited, leading to serious pain and other issues.
In part, this is why chiropractic care is important for the health and well-being of children and adults alike. While age tends to compress and curve the spine, chiropractors work to decompress and realign it to its optimal positioning.
