If you’re looking for a chiropractor in Algonquin, IL, we’re glad you chose us at Wellspring Chiropractic Acupuncture. Our lead chiropractor, Dr. Pamela Fernandes, trained with Dr. Yennie, the man who brought acupuncture to the United States. In 2012 she travelled to China with him to study acupuncture with Qigong Master, 4 star general, MD and acupuncturist Wan Su Jiang.
Chiropractic care is the use of manual adjustments to re-align the spine. See, from simply living life, we accumulate injuries called “subluxations”. A subluxation is just a fancy word to say that two spinal bones are out of alignment with each other.
See, the problem is that when this happens, it really puts wear and tear on your discs, and pressure on your nerves.
This leads to aches, pains and issues all over the body.
Your nervous system controls everything in your body. When it’s not doing well, the body parts connected to those nerves suffer.
Think of it this way: your car has electrical wires that are kind of like nerves. When those wires get damaged, you’re going to see issues. Maybe your locks don’t work, or those wipers are always on. The problem is in the wires, not the locks or the wipers.
Your body is very similar in that way.
Neck pain is a common complaint that brings patients to the office. Adjustments will clear up chronic pain in your neck.
