Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic is the largest non-drug, non-invasive health care profession in the United States today. Chiropractors focus on the musculo-skeletal system. Chiropractors assess objective parameters like gait, posture, balance, coordination, muscle strength, muscle tone and range of motion. And based upon these findings we implement joint manipulation, and soft tissue therapy to improve structural problems and enhance neurological stimulation.
The most common cause of loss of work is due to low back complaints, the cause may be muscular (e.g piriformis syndrome), joint (facet syndrome), nerve (sciatica or spinal nerve), ligament, misalignment or a combination of any of them.

Both, low back problems and RSI are due to disturbances of the musculo-skeletal system whereby chiropractic care can be greatly be beneficial.
